Hailing from Liverpool, 25-year-old Danny Roberts (7-1) will be returning to action for the first time since his win over Jack Mason at Cage Warriors 48 last July.

Roberts, who’s currently ranked 12th in the UK, said: “Diego Gonzalez is a very experienced fighter with a good grappling game. I’ve had a hard few months but I’m excited about coming back and getting another win.”

Gonzalez (15-7-0-1nc) returns to welterweight after a stint at 155lbs ended with a TKO loss at the hands of Ivan Buchinger at CWFC Fight Night 6 in May of last year.

“I’ve had a long lay-off but I’ve switched coach and team in the meantime. It’s a new start for me so I’m really looking forward to my return,” said Gonzalez, a 28-year-old Swede who already has five Cage Warriors bouts under his belt.
