UFC Vegas 53 Font vs. Vera will take place at the UFC APEX center where the smaller octagon is in use. For fights at featherweight (145 pounds) and smaller, finish rates run just 2% higher in the smaller 25-foot cage. That said, we have two heavyweight bouts in which finish rates rise 5% with those monsters being thrust into close confines.

Last week Insight the Octagon readers positioned with Jessica Andrade -170 in the first leg of a parlay ended up realizing outstanding value as she closed in the neighborhood of -225 for that bout.

Let’s take a peek at a couple of interesting matchups for this week’s event.

Rob Font (-130) vs. Marlon Vera (+ 110)

Bantamweight (135 pounds) | Main Event

This main event pairs fifth-ranked Font against eighth-ranked Vera.

Vera is an Ecuadorian fighter with a black belt in BJJ, superior striking and an aggressive demeanor. He’s 3-2 since 2020, has won his last two bouts and has beaten ranked competition. His only losses were to Song Yadong and Jose Aldo, elites in the division.
