Karl Roberson who previously lost to Glover at light heavyweight earlier this year, dropped down to middle weight and picked up his first win in this division after a grueling three round fight against Wellington Turman. But the win didn’t come easy as Karl had to eek out the victory from the much game Turman, who wanted to make his UFC debut a memorable one. Both the middleweights let loose the moment first round began and continued their exchanges till the final secs. Turman switched to a ground game, but Karl was able to stuff it, get back to his feet and happily continued to land elbows and punches. But Turman’s resiliency saw him finally get a takedown but his attempt to lock on a submission resulted in Karl turning the tables. With the final round remaining, Turman continued with his ground strategy and submission attempts but they didn’t score well against Karl’s kickboxing. With this win, Karl is now 3-2.
