Kenny Robertson

Drops boring split decision to Roan Carneiro in Hidalgo
September 17, 2016
Robertson lost to Roan Carneiro via split decision (29-28, 27-30, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Hidalgo, Texas.
Don't let the 'split decision' term fool you, it was as boring a fight as you'll see in the UFC. There was so little going on that it was nearly impossible to pick a clear winner. Robertson was the far more active of the two men on the feet, but they landed nearly the same amount of total strikes which gave the impression that Robertson was getting nothing done - which was more or less the truth. Following a brief (and surprising) three-fight winning streak from March 2014 to January 2015, Robertson has now lost back-to-back split decisions. At least the previous one against Ben Saunders last July was entertaining to watch.

Kenny Robertson: Drops Close Split Decision To Ben Saunders
July 25, 2015
Robertson lost to Ben Saunders via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC on FOX 16 on Saturday in Chicago.
Robertson deserves some credit here. Despite the fact that Saunders appeared to be about three times in size, Robertson put his head down, got inside and landed numerous power shots. He even dropped Saunders and had a chance to finish the bout early on. Robertson's undoing came mid-way through Round 3 after he landed a takedown. Saunders tied up his arms and Robertson spent the final few minutes of the contest getting his face rearranged. He was a bloody mess by the time it was over. Still, an argument can certainly be made that Robertson won this fight. A former high school wood shop teacher, this was the first fight off Robertson's career that he had a full training camp and didn't have to train exclusively after work.
