( reporter and Fisttacuff Radio host Anton Skoro (@FisttauffRadio) caught up with BJJ coach/MMA fighter Robert Drysdale at Tuff-N-Uff earlier this month where he was cornering/coaching one of his fighters, Jordan McDonald (@JordanMcDonald).

Drysdale discussed playing both the roles of fighter and coach, he talked about the term “martial arts” and what it means to him, and also discussed moving to his new gym and working with boxing coach Gil Martinez (who we also interviewed at this event).

A long-time BJJ practitioner  and winner of numerous world championships, Drysdale is also 3-0 as a pro MMA fighter with all three wins coming by way of first round submission. Drysdale explained why he withdrew from his scheduled May 11 fight against Isaac “Ike” Villanueva (7-6) at Legacy Fighting Championships 11, and said the plan is to return to action in July (scheduled for July 13) against Villanueva at Legacy Fighting Championships 12.
