Kenny Robertson showcased his grappling skills on the ground with his victory against Ildemar Alcantara tonight at “UFC 175”. They were the co-main event of the Fox Sports 1 portion of the card and it was a one-sided beating.
Once Robertson got Alcantara to the ground, there was no question who was going to come out on top. Alcantara had nothing for Robertson on the ground, but it was not because Alcantara is not skilled. Robertson did a fantastic job at shifting his body weight to prevent Alcantara from sweeping him or transitioning. Once Robertson got him where he wanted him, he would ground and pound him until the round ended.
Alcantara finally landed a takedown of his own in the third round, but it was not long before Robertson simply swept him. Robertson out-struck Alcantara by over 100 strikes on the ground and it was no surprise who the winner of the bout was when the judges’ decision was announced.
