Last September, internet sensation, Travis Robertson, posted a video online and it got millions of hits. It was there that Mr. Obnoxious was born. He now has over a half million followers and his posts reach as many as 54 million people. However, years before that, Robertson was a pioneer in MMA in the state of Tennessee and has been fighting since 2010 and was one of the top welterweights in the area.
He sported an amateur record of 11-5-1 and fought for Strikeforce, World Series of Fighting, and of course V3Fights. On September 2 he will make his professional debut against veteran Matt Holmes.
Robertson splits his time training at USA Karate, which is an American Top Team affiliate and with Torian Whitlow of Standup Fighter at Prize Fight Academy. He will be moving up to middleweight to take on Holmes and when asked about this fight here is what he had to say:
“I see this fight going only one way, knockout! I don’t believe my opponent possesses a strong enough chin for my power. I feel my main advantage would be on the ground, but I’m going to surprise everybody with technical standup.”
Robertson has always been a fan favorite in the Memphis area, but now that he is going pro, on September 2 millions of people worldwide can witness the debut of Mr. Obnoxious!
