Welterweight Danny Roberts vs. Mike Perry
Lightweight Leonardo Santos vs. Adriano Martins
Danny Roberts is a 28-year-old welterweight fighter with a record of 11 wins and just one loss. He made his name fighting on OMMAC, in the Liverpool Olympia, before inking a deal to fight with Cage Warriors, where he tore through a stacked welterweight division and eventually caught the eye of the UFC.
An impressive knock-out victory over Jim Wallhead in the main event of Cage Warriors Fighting Championships 68, at the Liverpool ECHO Arena, impressed UFC officials enough for them to reward him with a contract to fight in the world’s premier mixed martial arts promotion. He debuts this week on a card headlined by a women’s strawweight contest between Paige VanZant and Rose Namajunas.
Who will he fight?
Roberts was expected to fight unbeaten American Michael Graves, but the 24-year-old was forced to withdraw through injury.
Roberts is instead slated to face fellow newcomer Nathan Coy, who has a record of 14-5 and most recently fought in Bellator. Coy is a veteran, having fought big names such as Tyron Woodley, Brian Foster, Mike Pierce and Rick Story.
