Robo to Face Otsuka in First Shine Fight

(Houston, TX) – Sources have informed that Houston fighter Chad “Robo” Robichaux, fresh off signing his 3 fight deal with Shine Fights, is rumored to be facing Japanese sensation Takafumi Otsuka  on the March Shine PPV card in Las Vegas, Nevada. (EDITORS NOTE: We have now confirmed the fight.  Both fighters have signed, so it is now official).

Robo, 8-0 as a pro, will face his toughest challenge yet when steps into the cage with Otsuka.  “I think it will be a war and very very exciting.  I’m very motivated and confident.” the 135lb Legacy FC champion said. Robo, a black belt under Carlos Gracie Jr.,  has won all 8 of his pro fights via submission and will not doubt look to get Otsuka to the ground early and often.
