England’s Danny “Hot Chocolate” Roberts heads to Rochester on the back of a narrow loss to Claudio Silva at UFC London in March Despite the defeat ending his two-fight winning streak – his record now stands at 16 wins and four defeats. The bout featured a valiant comeback effort from the 31-year-old, which he will surely take solace from heading into Saturday night.
Roberts’ opponent, Brazilian Michel “Demolidor” Pereira, became a viral sensation because of his acrobatic antics in ROAD FC during his current 6-1 run, which includes five wins by finish. 31-year-old Pereira has previously been described as a button-masher, often unleashing a flurry of moves such as a straight right, left body shot and clinch knee.
Roberts will be confident of his prowess on his feet and boasts enough power and endurance to conquer Pereira if the UFC Debutant’s energy runs low towards the latter stages, particularly when keeping Pereira’s busy recent schedule in mind. This is a high-energy combination and with their staying power, it’s going to be a spectacular match up when Roberts welcomes Pereira in the Octagon.
