On the other side of this matchup is Rob Font who sits with a 20-6 record overall but he has lost two of his last three fights. Two fights ago against Marlon Vera, he outstruck him 271-159, but he was knocked down three times in that fight and that led to the unanimous decision loss. In his last fight against Adrian Yanez he was able to secure the victory by knockout a little over halfway through the first round. Font is averaging 6.96 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 4.03 significant strikes per minute. In this fight, Font is going to need to have a strong chin to take some damage. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Font was knocked down three times in his last fight, and he’s going to struggle in this fight. Sandhagen looked good in his last fight and he has a ton of power in his hands. Even with that though, Font has never been knocked out, and his chin is going to be strong again here. Sandhagen is going to wear down Font, and he’s going to dominate the fight, but he’s not going to get the finish. Back Sandhagen to win by decision.
