Robinson was 5-0 as an amateur out of Mayanz MMA before turning professional.
“I did well as an amateur,” said Robinson “with each fight I got better. When I won a championship, we decided it was time to turn professional because I had professional tendencies from training with a pro.” I consider myself a well-rounded fighter. If the fight goes to the ground I can handle myself, if the fight goes to a clinch I will do well there too. If you focus on one style, you will never make it to the top and that is where I want to be. I predict on Wednesday night a second-round stoppage by submission or knockout.”
