Robert Whiteford (often known as Rab) has been one of Flora Fusions closest friends from the beginning. He is one of Scotlands most successful mixed martial arts and the first Scottish fighter to fight in the UFC. Rab's career began in Alloa where he fought for the 'Hostile Territory' team and mastered Judo & Muay Thai. He went on to win a Bronze medal at the 2006 Commonwealth Judo Championships in the category of 'Under 73kgs'. He then joined the 'Dinky Ninja Fight Team in Glasgow. Rab started his professional fighting career in the UK in 2009 and compiled an impressive record of 10-1. This lead to his signing with the UFC in 2013.
Mousah Vs Whiteford | 19/05/2018
This weekend, Rab will be fighting Kane 'The Danger' Mousah (from England) at the ACB 87 in Nottingham. Mousah who himself is a force to be reconned with will be a fitting opponent for our Rab. Their fight is the main event for the night and is much anticipated within the European MMA & professional fighting community. ACB brings fighters & fans from all across Europe, so this is a huge fight. This bout is particularly close to our hearts because it is the first big promotional event that Flora Fusion has ever done. We have been helping Rab with his preparation by supplying him with some of our products and he has happily included us in his official sponsors.
At the event, we will be visible on banners and posters as well as on Rab's shorts. (Don't mention the shorts to our sales director, Brain). This is extremely exciting for us and the support from Rab has been nothing short of amazing. We are absolutely thrilled to be side by side with Rab for his fight.
We are going to be getting right behind Rab on the night and watching every second of the coverage. It may not be too late to grab a last minute ticket but if not, ACB has a free Channel for you to watch the full coverage. Find out more information on their facebook.
