No-shows loss in Vegas
December 19, 2020
Robertson lost to Taila Santos via unanimous decision (26-30, 26-30, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
In Robertson's defense, it's difficult to generate any sort of offense when you spend the entirety of the fight being controlled on the mat. Robertson started slowly and got no better as the fight progressed. Her inability to separate from Santos and get herself into advantageous positions is highly concerning in a fight in which she entered as a -145 favorite. Robertson has made a name for herself beating up on lesser competition, but there is nothing here to suggest she is any sort of legitimate contender at 125 pounds. Robertson is still just 25 years old and boasts a strong 6-3 record with the company, but the Canadian is just 2-2 in her past four fights dating back to October 2019.

November 23, 2020
Robertson (9-4-0) agreed Friday to face Andrea Lee (11-5-0) in a flyweight fight Dec. 12 at UFC 256 in Las Vegas, Mike Heck of reports.
A winner of in her last two bouts, Robertson has the clear edge in momentum of the two fighters, as Lee is returns to the Octagon riding a three-fight losing streak. Robertson was particularly dominant in her last fight Oct. 17 in Abu Dhabi, where she picked up a convincing unanimous-decision victory over Poliana Botelho.
At her suffocating best in win
October 17, 2020
Robertson defeated Poliana Botelho via unanimous decision (29-27, 29-27, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
Robertson had a bit of trouble finding her way inside in Round 1, but the pressure got to Botelho in the latter frames, which allowed "The Savage" to take her time and cut through her opponent on the ground, swelling her up with elbows along the way. While she was unable to find the finish here, Robertson has earned every letter of her nickname in her time with the UFC, notching a 6-2 record with five stoppages. We've seen her struggle with bigger fighters and better grapplers, but it's clear that Robertson is a constantly-improving problem for fighters at 125 pounds. She improves to 9-4 in professional MMA overall with the win.
Set for Oct. 17 fight with Botelho
July 29, 2020
Robertson is scheduled to face Poliana Botelho in a flyweight fight in a UFC event set for Oct. 17 at a yet-to-be-determined location, Raphael Marinho of reports.
Robertson is coming off of a submission victory over Cortney Casey in June at UFC on ESPN 11, marking her third victory in her last four bouts. Next up for the Canadian is a fight with Botelho, who is if 3-1-0 since joining the UFC. Robertson surrenders three inches of height and four inches of reach to her opponent, so it seems likely she will spend most of her time looking for take-down opportunities.
