Nicolas Dalby (18-3-1) will face Danny Roberts (17-5) in London on Saturday, March 21 at The O2. The UFC announced the bout today.
The Dane Dalby defeated Alex Oliveira (20-8-1, 2 NC) in his hometown for the UFC’s first trip to Denmark back in September. The Royal Arena was behind their fighter as the “Sharpshooter” took down the “Cowboy” by unanimous decision in an intense 15 minute battle in the Cage Warriors champ’s return to the Octagon after three years away.
