David Robins and Charlie Alexander ready for showdown at VFC 65 in Nashville

VFC 65

VFC 65

One of the biggest fights of the year is set to go down this weekend, as lightweights David Robins (5-0) and Charlie Alexander (5-2) will headline VFC 65 in Nashville.

Robins looks to put an exclamation point on what has already been a banner year in 2019 for him. The American Killer Bees product fights out of Cleveland, Tennessee, and is 4-0 with all four wins via stoppage this year. He has four of his wins via first round knockout or TKO, and most recently submitted Adam Denton with a toe hold at VFC 61 in July.

Alexander will be a big step up in competition, as his first five opponents had a combined record of 8-9 overall. He’s ranked as the No. 5 pro lightweight in Tennessee according to Tapology.

“This is by far the biggest fight of both of our careers,” Robins told BluegrassMMA. “I think this will have a tremendous effect on both of our careers. Charlie’s got a lot of hype around his name, as do I, so I can’t wait to see what happens next. I don’t see the fight going any kind of way other than me having my hand raised in the end. I’ve trained for 13 weeks for Charlie so I am prepared to strike or grapple with him.”

The Nashville native Alexander has been hot as well as of late, winning a pair of bouts under the Attitude MMA banner this year. After a submission over Adam Denton in April, he topped Bobby Taylor via decision in July.

“It’s gonna be a big fight, we are two of the top prospects in this region,” Alexander said. “He’s getting a lot of hype behind him but I’m all about locking down the hype train.”

This is also a step up in competition for him, as his opponents have had a combined 11-18 record. He’s ranked as the No. 16 pro lightweight in Tennessee.

VFC 65 takes place at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds in Music City on Saturday night. You can check out the current card here, and watch the event on FloCombat.
