THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Karl Roberson is desperate to bounce back from a loss as he welcomes the promising Wellington Turman to the UFC who is riding a four-fight winning streak.

Turman is only 22 years-old but he has gained a lot of experience fighting for various promotions and is coming off a huge win under the Future Fighting Championships banner where he submitted Marcio Alexandre in the first round only three months ago.

Roberson is also coming off a first-round submission but this was to Glover Teixeira and he took the fight on short notice. This showed just how game he is stepping up to 205 and he nearly finished the veteran with nasty elbows before Teixiera recovered and rallied to pull off an arm-triangle.

THE PREDICTION

These guys both have a ton of potential and although Roberson was preparing for John Phillips. he has had a full training camp. Turman will be buzzing for his first opportunity in the octagon.

They are both very explosive and a finish for either man is likely. Although Roberson’s two losses have come via submission, they were against elite Jiu-Jitsu practitioners and he has the ability to fend of the submission attempts from Turman. A fully prepared Roberson is a dangerous beast and his power could just lead to the third knockout of his career.

Winner: Roberson via KO/TKO
