“I can’t even. I’m like, this is really, like, to share the mat with someone like Rose who is absolutely a dream to me … It’s just a dope opportunity to be here with Fury.”
Robertson is 11-7 overall in MMA and made her debut in the UFC in 2017. She has traded wins and losses in the organization against fighters such as ‘Meatball’ Molly McCann, Maycee Barber, Talia Santos, Miranda Maverick, Priscila Cachoeira, and a recent victory over Mariya Agapova.
