Mike Perry vs Danny Roberts booked for UFC 204
<p>Rising welterweight prospects Mike Perry and Danny Roberts will clash at UFC 204 in Manchester, according to a <a href="http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/8/26/12658668/mike-perry-gets-quick-turnaround-faces-danny-roberts-at-ufc-204">report by MMAFighting.</a></p>
<p>After an impressive promotional debut less than two weeks ago, Perry (8-0) will be making a quick turnaround to face Roberts. “Platinum” knocked out Hyun Gyu Lim as an underdog inside the first round of their main card bout at UFC 202 to solidify his spot on the roster. The 24-year old has knocked out all eight of his opponents, six in the opening round.</p>
<p>Roberts (13-1) has gone 2-0 in the UFC since being signed by the promotion last year. In his debut, he faced Nathan Coy who he put to sleep with an arm-triangle choke midway through the first round. After that, he moved on to beat Dominique Steele via unanimous decision at UFC 197 in April.</p>
<p>UFC 204 is set to take place at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England on October 8 and will be headlined by the rematch between Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson for the middleweight title. The card also features a matchup between Vitor Belfort and Gegard Mousasi in addition to Ovince St. Preux vs Jimi Manuwa.</p>
