Big step up for Yanez he struggles with finding he’s range some times and rob has one of the best jabs I could see font box he’s head off and I could see yanez catching him in the 2nd or 3rd round who knows how much font has left at 36 and coming off two losses where he’s been knocked down a total of 5 times

Even if yanez doesn't find the mark initially he can weather an early storm, we saw that against Randy Costa. I believe that he can study what chito and aldo where able to do to him, but we'll see

@AyyLmaonnaise

Sure but Font has taken a lot of damage of recent, he's 35 which is especially old for BW and Yanez is clearly the faster of the two with legit hands and undeniable power. If Font wants to win he should put his wrestling shoes on, look to clinch, wear Yanez out, grapple, make it dirty. If they mostly strike, it's hard not to favor Yanez. Yanez is relatively untested but Font like Cruz and Munhoz are in the top 10 but on their way out of the rankings and heading towards retirement in reality. 

Yanez is unproven and he is already 29, there's so many talented guys much younger than him rising up and guys ranked near and above him who could give him lots of trouble. I just don't know if Fonts that guy anymore.

Any ideas where this card might take place? Probably won't be vegas since 285 is there or texas since they'll be in san antonio. Maybe Boston?

EDIT: sherdog says it'll be in Brooklyn. Not sure if that's 100%

Leaning Font on this one. You can see even in his last 2 losses that Font is phenomenal. Power and volume with high output, only complaints really are his chin and lack of kicking at times (His whole gym has the issue). Yanez is great but Font is a BIIIIIIIG step up, and we’ve seen Yanez get pieced up a times before coming back later in the fight

I swear if the Loopy that barely shot Vs. Angela Hill shows up again to 'demonstrate her boxing' I'm unfortunately gonna have to never bet on her again

Nah loopy needs a full camp to implement how she fights. She dominated carnelossi when she had a full camp & looked like **** when she didn't against Hill & luana Carolina

Well perhaps if she was worried about her gas tank, but she only shot 3 times vs. Hill & conversely 8 times against Carnelossi

I consider the fact that Loopy moved up to FW to fight Carolina & it seemed as if the size disparity is what gave her the TD issues in that particular fight, as she did attempt 15 TDs but only got 2.

I think loopy realized she wasn’t gonna get hill down easily and stopped shooting because there was no point in wasting energy

@Ayy That is definitely a strong & probable reason. Even so, I wish she would have shot at least a a little more - I vividly remember yelling at the TV "You're losing on the feet, just shoot!"
