Aldo is determined to leave the sport with the bantamweight title around his waist. Thus far he has proven to be the better man against three marquee bantamweight in a row and a win over Rob Font will be huge on his resume. Font came into this fight on a four-fight win streak and was surging up the ranks in his own right.
