Abu-Dhabi World Champion and Extreme Couture instructor Robert Drysdale will make
MMA debut against Josh Musick (8-0) at the next Tuff-N-UFF show slated for Oct. 17 from The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Drysdale currently serves as an assistant coach for Frank Mir’s team on this season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) reality show.

Being one of the top BJJ practitioners in the world, Drysdale has never took that leap to MMA, until now.

  1. Businessman says:

    If he has any stand-up game, he is gonna be something. He is insane on the mat.

  2. If he has any? If the guy doesnt have any stand up he is gonna look like Alberto Crane did and Ricardo Almeida. Almeida is a perfect example of a guy who cant fight but can do submissions. Wake me up when his fights are over.

  3. The really great BJJ guys have got to have some real good stand up or else their opponent can circle stay away and beat the shit out of them. I hate seeing BJJ guys fight b/c they beat someone shitty and the ufc gives them a B lvl fighter that has takedown defense and the BJJ guy just tries to pull guard while running away and BJJ scooting.

  4. Not to mention his chin. If he doesn't have much or any standup training, chances are he hasn't been knocked around much. He probably doesn't have a strong chin. So when he does go up against a standup guy, that guy will be able to pick him apart with jabs. As long as he has good take down defense he can be just as unstoppable.
