"Kid" Robinson to Make UFC Debut on April 7th

Ring of Fire promoter and Alvin Robinson's manager, Sven Bean, announced on FCF Radio this week that the up and coming lightweight fighter will make his "big show" debut at UFC 69. The event, which is scheduled for April 7th, in Houston, Texas, at the Toyota Centre, will see Robinson take on another notable rising commodity in Roger Huerta (16-1-1), who has gone undefeated in first 2 UFC appearances. Most recently at UFC 67 this month, Huerta stopped John Halverson in 19 seconds with strikes, making the follow up fight to his UFC debut a successful one, where he worked his way to a unanimous decision victory over Jason Dent at UFC 63 last September.

Robinson likely entrenched his shot in the UFC this weekend by defeating Olly Bradstreet at Ring of Fire 28, which was held in Broomfield, Colorado. Robinson extended his record to 8-1 with the win, submitting Bradstreet with a first round rear naked choke at 1:47. The loss for Bradstreet was only his second in over 20 fights, as his combined pro-am record now stands at 22-2. Robinson, who has a well accomplished and extensive background in wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Royce Gracie, has now won 3 fights in a row, with his only career loss coming to Fabio Holanda, Brazilian Top Team Canada's head jiu-jitsu instructor.
