Tyson Chartier, coach of American mixed martial arts fighter Rob Font, claims that his fighter is ready to fight for the UFC bantamweight title in 2021.
“It’s hard to say what will happen. All we can control now is the willingness to take the fight at any moment. If you look at what the situation with COVID is and how events are developing, then we can assume that Rob will receive a title fight in the very near future. Perhaps something will happen to Aljamein Sterlinog and he will not be able to fight with Peter Jan.
Font constantly trains and stays ready, because the proposal for the next fight may follow at any time. But I am confident that he deserves the title fight in 2021, ”said the coach.
Recall that Rob Font fought his last fight on December 19 at the UFC Fight Night 183 tournament and won by technical knockout in the first round of Brazilian bantamweight champion Marlon Moraes.
Coach Conor McGregor: “Poirier misses a lot, so the knockout is a matter of time.”
Owen Roddy, one of the coaches of the former UFC champion in two weight classes of the Irishman Conor McGregor, considers the future rival of his ward American Dustin Poirier to be a strong fighter, but he has no doubt that Conor will win by knockout in this fight.
“Poirier is a technically good fighter. He has excellent hands, he is strong, resilient, sets the pace. I think the combination of all of this has allowed Dustin to succeed. But he was shocked in almost every fight, and other fighters do not hit, like Conor.
All McGregor needs is a split second and as soon as he delivers a blow, you will be lost. The opponent will be on shaky legs and the next blow will follow, which will be the last in this fight.
Poirier misses a lot, so I think the knockout is just a matter of time. When Conor hits him, how much longer can he hold out? McGregor has 25 minutes to get to his chin, ”said the coach.
Recall that Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier will fight on January 23rd on Yas Island at the Flash Forum indoor complex in Abu Dhabi, in the main event of UFC 257.
