Rob Font faces former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt in the main event of UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.

The bouts at UFC Apex will be on ESPN+, with the main card starting at 7 p.m. ET and prelims at 4 p.m.

Font (18-4) has won three fights in a row, most recently a second-round TKO of Marlon Moraes in December. He is No. 5 in the ESPN men's bantamweight rankings.

The fourth-ranked Garbrandt (12-3) won the belt in 2016 and lost it in his first defense the following year, then dropped two more bouts after that. He got back on track with a second-round knockout of Raphael Assuncao last June.

The co-main event is a showdown of ranked strawweights. Former champion Carla Esparza (17-6), who has won four in a row, takes on fifth-ranked Yan Xiaonan (13-1, 1 NC), who is unbeaten in her last 12 fights.

Among the other fights on the card is a matchup of prospect Edmen Shahbazyan (11-1), a 23-year-old coming off his only professional loss, and Jack Hermansson (21-5), who is No. 9 in the ESPN middleweight rankings but has lost two of his last three bouts.
