A fight that is sure to provide some excitement has been signed to UFC Fight Night 25, as welterweights Daniel Roberts and TJ Waldburger will meet.
The “Battle of the Bayou” card takes place Sept. 17 from New Orleans. The main event is scheduled to be Jake Shields taking on Jake Ellenberger.
Roberts (12-3) has suffered back-to-back decision losses to Claude Patrick and Rich Attonito, putting himself on the edge of being cut from the company. Prior to his recent string of setbacks, Roberts had won 12 of his first 13 professional fights.
Waldburger (13-6) is coming off a defeat suffered at the hands of Johny Hendricks earlier this year. The Grappler’s Lair team member had won four straight bouts before falling to Hendricks.
It has not been made known if the fight will appear on the main card or the prelims.
