Many saw his fight with Sean O’Malley the other way around (including one referee) so he had a little more breathing room than usual. Still, Yan’s next fight is a must-win situation. His only win since 2020 came with Cory Sandhagen, who fought Marlon Vera later this month.
Rob Font had an argument with Adrian Yanez in early April. Font was ranked #6, Yanez #12 in the weight class. The fight against the victor, despite losing, made sense for Yan as he looked to rebuild.
