UFC bantamweight Rob Font (@RobSFont) joined Rear-Naked Choke Radio hosts Joe Rizzo (@RearNakedChoke) and Jay Kelly (@JayKellyMMA) to talk about his fight at UFC 198, his youth as a mischievous military brat and his budding MMA career.
Font is scheduled to meet highly regarded John Lineker at UFC 198 on May 14 in Curitiba, Brazil, and is looking to extend his 11-fight winning streak. Font made his case on why he’s going to defeat Lineker, and explained how being victorious over the Brazilian in enemy territory will advance his career.
UFC 198 will mark Font’s first bout outside the United States and only his second outside of New England. But it is not exactly foreign territory. Font was a military child, therefore he lived in various states and countries. He spoke about how the experiences he endured as a youth perfectly prepared him for travels into Lineker’s home country.
Font also talked about his childhood, his pizza-related path to becoming an MMA fighter, training under Mark DellaGrotte and more.
