It’s been a long time since Rob Font got to showcase his skills inside the Octagon.
Sunday night, Font finally stepped back into the cage and dominated, earning a second round finish vs. Joey Gomez at UFC Fight Night 81.
“I love Boston,” he said. “Thank you for taking me in.”
Font (12-1) last fought in 2014 when he scored a first round finish vs. George Roop in his debut. He has finished each of his last four opponents overall.
After a back-and-forth first round, Font connected with a left-hook that stunned Gomez. He followed up with several uncontested shots, forcing the ref to step in.
“The UFC jitters are real,” he said. “I knew once I hurt him, I just had to stay on him and go to work.”
