Maycee Barber – Gillian Robertson Match Prediction | 18-10-2019 19:00

It does surprise me that the UFC does that in general. Its not necessarily fair to the other fighter, but its a good shot for Liz. I know they did the same thing when Aspen Ladd and Holly were supposed to fight, then they pulled that for Amanda, Robertson said.

Ive never been to Edmonton, Ive never even been on that side of Canada, Robertson admitted. Her first time fighting in Canada, and her first time visiting the Province of Alberta. That said, UFC 240 will mark a couple of firsts for Robertson. Were a pretty vast nation, after all, and Robertsons family originates from the Niagara region back in Ontario.

We're back now, though, and we get to see arguably the most exciting fighter currently in the sport defend his light heavyweight title. UFC 145 takes place on Saturday, April 21 at Philips Arena in Atlanta. The event that was supposed to March 24 in Montreal was cancelled, so UFC 144 was nearly two months ago on February 26.

The most notable feature of this card is that it features the first-ever defense of the UFC Bantamweight championship -- and a heck of a fight is expected.

Im almost more excited for their fight than I am for my own. But its definitely awesome to be on a big card, to be on a card with Max Holloway and Frankie Edgar is absolutely unreal. The only drawback, Robertson pointed out, is that Im on the Fight Pass prelims again, so that didnt make me happy necessarily.

Fight History - Pro

UFC 138 will be a historical event as it will feature the promotion's first non-title five-round main event as middleweights Mark Munoz (-225) and Chris Leben (+175) will do battle in Birmingham, England. Munoz has won three in a row, dropping only one of seven appearances since moving to middleweight in 2009 while Chris Leben has won four of his last five. Read more about UFC 138 Predictions.

Pennington is a grinder who can, and will, wear her down. At 135, I struggle to see where Raquel Pennington doesn't control the action. Grit and determination. De Randamie struggles with making the weight, and it affects her performances. That's the whole fight. If this fight were to be contested at 145 pounds, I may be compelled to pick Germaine de Randamie.

Some of Gillian Robertsons success, no doubt, is thanks to coach Din Thomas, one of the best in the business. My last two camps have been three or four weeks notice. And the good news is, she plenty of time with Thomas in this camp. And plenty of time, period. Robertson credits him with molding her into the fighter she is today. This one has been ten weeks notice.

Im not necessarily saying that I want to stand up on the feet, but I want to be able to do damage on the ground at least. For starters, Robertson continued, I feel like it was too much of a jiu-jitsu fight, and Im not happy about that. I want to be an MMA fighter.
