One of our goals here at PRO MMA (promma.info) has always been to bring focus to MMA fighters, gyms, and promotions that often fly under the radar from much of the media. In this edition of PRO MMA Southeastern Fighter Spotlight we are featuring a lightweight up-and-comer by the name of Terry Robinson.

Terry trains out of Tupelo BJJ in Mississippi. He has been preparing for his third professional fight which takes place Saturday, June 20, for Cage Assault in Memphis, Tenn.. PRO MMA (promma.info) recently spoke to Terry about the MMA scene in the South, his gym, trainers, his upcoming opponent, and what UFC fighter he would most like to punch in the face.

PRO MMA: Hi Terry, thanks for speaking with us here at PRO MMA (promma.info). How are things with you?
TERRY ROBINSON: Hey thanks for having me Jack. Everything has been going great. I’ve been training hard now for several weeks getting ready to do battle.

PRO MMA: How old are you Terry and where are you from?
TERRY ROBINSON: I’m 32 yrs old and I’m from a town just north of Tupelo, Miss. called Saltillo.

PRO MMA: You have a fight coming up right? Where is this fight, who is your opponent, and what weight class will you be fighting at?
TERRY ROBINSON: I will be fighting on June 20th at The FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tenn.. I’ll be fighting Harry “Wild Child” Johnson at 155 lbs.

PRO MMA: Interesting name. What do you know about your opponent?
TERRY ROBINSON: I’m not sure of his record, but I do know he’s got several fights under his belt. He’s won a couple of belts as an amateur. He trains out of Team Vortex which is located in Memphis so he will for sure be the hometown favorite. Harry will have good cardio, he’ll be quick on his feet, and I think will be looking for the early knock-out or submission.




  1. Terry, I heard you did a great job and was the scrappiest guy there this weekend. I am sorry I didn't get to attend due to conflicting schedules but let me say thank you for doing such a great job.

  2. I was at the fight and Terry did put together a gutsy performance. The guy he fought had excellent stand up skills and Terry never backed down. He did TBJJ proud.
