Robert Drysdale Opponent Set for AFC 4 Main Event
Drysdale, the 2007 Abu Dhabi Open Weight champion, made his successful Mixed Martial Arts debut at AFC 3 in Victoria. On that July 17th card, Drysdale, who trains and coaches out of Xtreme Coutre in Las Vegas, submitted Bastien Huveneers (8-3-1) by Side Choke in just over a minute.
Now Drysdale’s AFC 4 opponent has been set. Drysdale will face Canada’s 9th ranked Light-Heavyweight Clay Davidson (5-1). Davidson, who trains with David Lea at Toshido MMA, is unbeaten in the last two years going 5-0. In those past five fights, Davidson has never needed the second round as he has finished each opponent in the first. This should be a tough second fight for Drysdale.
The Drysdale vs Davidson main event joins a solid AFC 4 card that is looking better and better after each announcement. Nick Hinchliffe vs Mike Hackert, Brad Causey, and a Graham Spencer vs Shawn Albrecht rematch have already been announced to fight on November 6th.
