Robertson nervous, excited, and ready to rip in

MMA: Travis Robertson has felt all of the emotions ahead of his return to the cage.

The Hervey Bay grappler will face Tyrell Woollcott at Eternal 33 at Southport Sharks tonight in what is his first bout in almost two years.

Robertson made weight yesterday with plenty to spare, but admitted he felt nervous ahead of the bout.

"I'm nervous, I'm anxious, I'm excited - I've felt everything," Robertson said.

"I'm perfect weight, I've got about 2kg to spare. The last week has been about getting a little bit more cardio and working on that technique."

Robertson will fight with former lightweight champion Greg "The Tarantula" Atzori in his corner, and will rely on advice from the Samarai Dr MMA owner and fellow trainer Levon McGrath.

"They'll remind me of the game plan if I stray and try to make sure I stick to it," Robertson said.

The event starts at 7pm with Robertson the fourth to fight.
