Jose Aldo and Rob Font agreed to headline a Fight Night card in December.

According to the Brazilian outlet, Combate, Aldo and Font agreed to headline a Fight Night card on December 4. The fight is unofficial as the contracts have not been signed, but the contracts will be released soon, according to the report.

With Petr Yan likely to face Cory Sandhagen for the interim bantamweight title at UFC 267, Aldo and Font were looking on the outside, so it makes sense to reserve them. They’re both also a couple of times of a title shot, so the stakes are high for their scrapping from the main event.

Jose Aldo (30-7) is on a two-game winning streak and comes off a decisive win over Pedro Munhoz at UFC 265 in August. Prior to that, he had beaten Marlon Vera last December to return to the winning column and claim his first bantamweight victory. The Brazilian suffered a TKO loss to Petr Yan for the vacant belt at UFC 251 and on his 135-pound debut he abandoned a controversial split decision to Marlon Moraes. He is also the former UFC and WEC featherweight champion with wins over Frankie Edgar, Chad Mendes, Korean Zombie and Urijah Faber, among others. Aldo is also currently ranked fifth in bantamweight.

Rob Font (19-4) is the fourth bantamweight and comes off the biggest win of his career beating Cody Garbrandt by decision in his first UFC main event. The victory extended his winning streak to four as he also killed Marlon Moraes in the first round and beat Ricky Simon and Sergio Pettis by decision. He’s 9-3 inside the Octagon with losses to Raphael Assuncao, Pedro Munhoz and John Lineker. He holds notable wins over Thomas Almeida and Matt Schnell, but Aldo would likely be the biggest win of his career.

Who do you think will win, Jose Aldo or Rob Font?
