The only challenge Robert Drysdale faced in headlining the Legacy FC 15 card this Friday was making the 93 kg (205 lb) weight limit for the light heavyweight division. After first showing up around five pounds overweight at weigh-ins, at least the ADCC 2007 champion didn’t have to sweat much in the actual fight.
Drysdale easily took his opponent, Chris Reed, down with a well-timed single-leg, targeted the north-south choke but was kept at bay by Chris grabbing his shorts. Robert thus transitioned to mount, where he sunk an armbar 1:15 minutes into the fight.
The win marks Drysdale’s fifth submission win of his five-fight professional career, as well as the third armbar in his MMA collection.
