Nebraska’s very own Tower Robinson will return to the victory cage December 16th for the Victory Fighting Championship 59 event. Standing in front of him across the cage will be the undefeated fighter Troy Nawrocki. Tower Robinson made his first appearance back in June for the VFC Fight Night Harrah’s 5. Robinson scored a TKO against Ryan Beckett with only one second remaining in the 2nd round.
I reached out to Tower Robinson ahead of his fight at VFC 59 to see what exactly he had to say going into this fight.
GB: You recently signed a 4 fight contract with Victory Fighting Championship right?
TR: Yessir! Something I have been pushing towards for a long time. I am super honored to have my first pro contract signing with VFC and Alliance MMA!
GB: Do you see yourself progressing up the rankings within these four fights?
TR: I would like to think so. I’m just going to take it one fight at a time. Troy is the first fight in the contract and I have to get through him first.
GB: So how did your training camp go for this bout? Anything you have been training for to unleash come Saturday night?
TR: My fight camp went very well! I trained hard for 8-10 weeks. Cardio is great, and I am feeling strong. I would just like to take the time to say that I will be dedicating this fight to the life of 9 year old Ryan Molzahn, his family, and his loved ones. Ryan was from my hometown of Bloomington, NE and his family was very close to ours. Ryan’s life was taken from him way to soon. He was killed tragically in an accident. This one is for you buddy!
GB: I am very sorry to hear that sir. I respect that 100% and condolences to the family during this difficult time. After making your pro debut with Victory Fighting Championship, is there anyone on your radar that you would be interested in fighting next?
TR: Not really I have put all my focus into Troy Nawrocki.
GB: So a little back story on you- how long have you been training in mixed martial arts?
TR: It will be 6 years next September.
GB: Where do you train?
TR: Skywalker 101 Boxing.
GB: So if you were calling this fight now, how is this fight going to go down?
TR: Cloudy with 90% of pain! One thing is certain this will not be left in the hands of the judges. Pretty sure Troy will agree with me on that.
GB: Is there any thing you would like to say to Troy Nawrocki before the event?
TR: I have nothing but respect for Troy but this is the sport we chose. Someone has to lose and either way Troy and I will have a cold one after our fight.
GB: Sounds good, is there anything we can expect from Tower Robinson in this fight and the future?
TR: Nothing but pure excitement, don’t blink!
GB: Tower thank you so much for your time and good luck against Troy Nawrocki December 16th. Is there anything you want to say to the fans?
TR: My message to the fans is don’t ever be afraid to chase your dreams. Thank you as well. I’ll be seeing you around.
