Titan FC’s Lightweight “Beast” Robert Washington (18-8) has been being beastly as of late. In his last 3 fights he’s had 3 knockouts. Scratch that, it was 2 knockouts, the other was a submission, due to punches. In other words Robert has been scary good lately.
He will take his talents into tonight’s stacked Titan FC 30 card against Gleristone Santos (26-4). In this fight Robert won’t put his style in neutral, he plans to keep his foot on the gas and to keep coming forward.
“I will do nothin’ new.” says Robert. “I’m going to be a wrestler and a striker however it’ll be a more aggressive me. Nothing in particular but I’m not going to be the old me and wait. I really don’t have to change anything. He doesn’t have one great thing that sticks out to me. My gameplan is simple be a mixed martial artist.”
Washington furthers his opinion that he is all around the better and more well rounded fighter than Santos. He has done his scouting report and is still confident.
“I’m a speedy wrestler and I’m all around better than him. I’ve watched him and I’m unbiased when it comes to my judgement of other fighters. Unless he plans on doing something crazy, why would he plan on doing anything different when he has been winning so much lately?”
Santos is 8-0 in his last 8 and hasn’t lost since 2011. But in this featherweight title eliminator Robert knows he’ll be in for a fast paced fight where the winner will go on to face the lightening quick Kurt Holobaugh. Washington goes on to tell what he believes will be the future and predicts exactly what Gleristone will do.
“It’ll be a fast paced fight, I don’t think he’s going to wrestle me, he’s going to try to jab, jab high-kick and pick me apart. I doubt he shoots, he knows I’m stronger. I think my hand is going to be raised, I’m prepared for 5 rounds when it’s only scheduled for 3. I want the finish but MMA can go so many ways.”
