Danny Roberts next fight at MGM Grand on April 23

Danny Roberts next fight at MGM Grand on April 23

BRITISH welterweight prospect Danny ‘Hot Chocolate’ Roberts will return to Las Vegas for his second UFC appearance when he competes at UFC 197 on April 23.

Roberts will take on ‘Non-Stop Action Packed’ Dominique Steele in an exciting matchup at 170lbs at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Roberts made a dream debut on his maiden UFC appearance, defeating Nathan Coy by first-round technical submission in the UFC Fight Night: Namajunas v VanZant event in December.

The Brit has an impressive 12-1 career record, with five KOs and five coming by way of submission, including finishes of respected British athletes Jimmy Wallhead and Jack Mason earlier in his career.

Now he’s in the UFC with an impressive debut win under his belt, the Blackzilians-trained fighter plans on furthering his reputation as one of the most exciting fighters to emerge from the UK with an eye-catching win over Steele.

Steele also impressed on his most recent UFC appearance, defeating the lesser-known of the two Dong Hyun Kims with a third-round slam knockout in Seoul, South Korea, last November.

The main event sees former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones make his Octagon return as he bids to reclaim the title from current incumbent and big rival Daniel ‘DC’ Cormier.
