After an ultra-competitive UFC 262 card, it’s now time to turn our focus to UFC Vegas 27 with our UFC Vegas 27 Staff Picks!

The main event will see Rob Font take on Cody Garbrandt in an absolute banger of a fight. The co-main event features Yan Xiaonan and Carla Esparza in a strawweight battle. Justin Tafa will take on Jared Vanderaa in a heavyweight scrap that could end in an instant. Felicia Spencer and Norma Dumont will duke it out in a featherweight scrap, with the future of the division in doubt.

Ricardo Ramos and Bill Algeo will go to war at featherweight, jumping up to the main card after Raulian Paiva was pulled from his scheduled fight against David Dvorak. Jack Hermansson and Edmen Shahbazyan will kick off the main card in a middleweight scrap that is sure to entertain.

Without further ado, let’s get on to our UFC Vegas 27 Staff Picks.
