After his dominant decision win over former bantamweight champion Cody 'No Love' Garbrandt, Rob Font claimed to have the best jab in the entire promotion.

Speaking to Paul Felder in the post-fight interview, Font made the following statement:

"Just stayed disciplined, you know. Stopped trying to look for the finish and just stayed behind my jab. Like I said, I have the best jab in the UFC, that's for sure."

Discussing his gameplan for the fight, Font said:

"I must have thrown a million jabs for this fight...You know, i can't go hook for hook with him. I can't go big overhand overhand with him. It's just gonna be the jab... I really do believe it's the best jab in the UFC."

Rob Font is hoping to fight for the title next, but he is also looking at the winner of Cory Sandhagen and TJ Dillashaw for his next bout.

"Obviously, the winner of the TJ fight or obviously, if I could get to the belt, I would love to get straight to the belt."
