Norwegian Thomas Robertson (5-1) will face England’s Phil Wells (8-4) on Cage Warriors’ return to the Indigo at The O2 on June 2 in London. This is the same location of the welterweight’s last bout at Cage Warriors 80 in February.
Robertson looked like he was on his way to his first Cage Warriors win and another victory in his undefeated run, but an elbow leading to a cut and then a submission stopped the Sarpsborg Chi Kickboxing & MMA fighter. “Mentally I was too amped-up, I need to cool my self down and be more patience.” said the fighter to MMAViking.com following his first loss.
“In my next fight I will cool down and strike when i get my chance.”
“What i learned most is that I cant go all out right away.” continues Robertson that eventually was overcome by the veteran Craig White (10-7) in the welterweight bout. Now he looks at another veteran in Wells. He has a 1 win and 1 loss record with Cage Warriors, most recently losing by submission against Aaron Khalid.
