Karl Robertson will be fighting Jack Marshman at UFC 230 in New York City.
Karl Robertson will be fighting in only his 8th professional MMA duel. As it currently stands, Robertson has a record of 6 wins and 1 loss with the defeat occurring at his last fight where he lost via submission. It was a comprehensive defeat for Robertson as he was forced to tap in the first round due to an arm-triangle choke placed by Cezar Ferreira at UFC 224. It was surprising to see Robertson lose via submission as he is an excellent fighter on the mat. Out of his 6 wins, Robertson has won 3 times via submission. As far as this fight is concerned, Robertson should try and take it onto the mat as he does not have much chance of competing against Marshman in a boxing match.

Jack Marshman enters this fight with a professional MMA record of 22 wins and 7 losses. Mashman is an exceptional striker and he has won close to 60% of his fights via knockout. Marshman is the shorter fighter and that should play to his advantage as it will be harder for Robertson to take him down meaning the fight is more likely to remain standing. While standing, I see Mashman winning with ease with the fight lasting not very long. On the mat, it will be a close contest as Mashman will be at a disadvantage although he has proven in the past that he can compete. In his career, Jack Marshman has 5 fights via submission.
While Karl Robertson has started his MMA career well, I see him struggling in this fight. Marshman is far superior when standing while also managing to compete while on the mat. I see Robertson struggling to takedown Marshman and that leading to Marshman winning via knockout.
