On Tuesday we were lucky enough to receive a visit at Boyd Digital Towers from world class featherweight MMA fighter Robert Whiteford who we sponsor. The first Scot to fight in the UFC Octagon, he has an impressive list of fights under his belt.
Based at one of the top MMA teams in Europe, the Dinky Ninja Fight School in Glasgow, Robert also trains in Sweden and in the US where he is part of the American Top Team.
MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) is one of the fasted growing combative sports, and Robert is making a name for himself.
Currently Robert is recovering from a back injury sustained whilst in training for his intended fight against Dennis Siver, but he is keeping busy as he heals and in fact after he’d been chatting with us he was off to Stirling to hold an MMA class at MXP Fitness gym in Stirling.
Whilst with us he dominated at table tennis (despite our rather questionable ‘street waff’ rules) and found time to hold an interview with Boyd Digital’s Gregor.
You can check out Robert’s website at www.robertwhiteford.com – he’s definitely a name that you will be hearing more of!
