Robert Drysdale debut on Friday

On the last month, two BJJ black belts made successful MMA debuts. André Galvão started with a submission and Xande Ribeiro with a knockout. This Friday (17), the 2005 world champion and 2007 ADCC champion, Robert Drysdale, will make his debut. Against Josh Musick, at Tuff-N-Uff’s Future Stars of MMA, Drysdale wants to show that he’s actually a MMA future star.



“I’m calm and well prepared to fight. I wanna fight, I’m anxious, I’d fight today if I could. I trained all days in two periods, Boxing and Wrestling in the morning and physical preparation with Rafael Alejarra, and the sparring part I did at Xtreme Couture”, said Drysdale, who trained with Wanderlei Silva, Forrest Griffin and Randy Couture on trainings: “Wanderlei and Forrest helped me a lot giving me some tips, the experience, becaude they believe a lot in me, and Couture helped me on the wrestling part. I’m very happy and I know I’ll win this fight”.



To prepare his tactic for the first challenge in MMA, Drysdale will inspire himself in Griffin’s preparation to face Quinton Jackson for the UFC light-heavyweight belt. “I asked him which tactic he would use to face Rampage and he said one simple phrase: ‘I know two things, that I’m prepared and won’t give up’. It marked me a lot and I’ll use it in this fight, also because I don’t know anything about my opponent, only that he has five fights and five victories, and comes from Jiu-Jitsu. I heard that he’s happy to face me and it’s good, because he might come hungry and make some mistakes”, said the black belt.
For everyone who got all excited about Vinny bringing World Class BJJ to LHW they should've been paying attention to Drysdale.

His grappling game IMO really fits MMA well and considering he gets to spar with 2 top LHW's in Wandy and Forrest everyday I think he will be quick to make an impact.

If I was still doing Next Generation posts Drysdale would get one because I see him doing great things at LHW.

Man Drysdale, Ribeiro, and Galvao all have started fighting and no one seems to realize it.

These guys are going to make an impact at 205 and Galvao will do well at 170.

Ribeiro was impressive. I really want to see more from him in MMA. A World Champion BJJ guy comes in and KO's his opponent. He has a lot of potential.
