UFC on FOX 16: Ben Saunders to Face Kenny Robertson
By FCF Staff
The line-up for UFC on FOX 16 continues to grow, as the promotion has announced that Ben Saunders will fight Kenny Robertson at the July 25th card.
Saunders (18-6-2) is coming off wins over Joe Riggs and Chris Heatherly since he returned to the UFC last year. The welterweight was supposed to fight Erick Silva in March but had to withdraw due to injury.
Robertson (15-3) is riding a three fight winning streak, and in January, he KO’d Sultan Aliev. The noted grappler was scheduled to fight George Sullivan last month but incurred an injury and withdrew.
UFC on FOX 16 will be hosted by Chicago’s United Center and will feature bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw taking on Renan Barao in the main event.
