Daniel Roberts to Fight TJ Waldburger at Fight Night 25

By FCF Staff

The upcoming, September 17, UFC Fight Night 25 card has another welterweight bout scheduled, as the promotion has announced that Daniel “Ninja” Roberts and TJ Waldburger have agreed to fight at the event.

Roberts (12-3) will be looking to end a two fight losing streak, as the Cesar Gracie trained fighter has dropped back-to-back bouts to Claude Patrick and most recently Rich Attonito. The defeats came after Roberts had scored three straight wins over Forrest Petz, Mike Guymon and Greg Soto.

Waldburger (13-6) is coming off a stoppage loss to Johny Hendricks in March, after working his way to a unanimous decision win over David Mitchell at Fight Night 22 last September. The Texas fighter is 4-1 in his last five fights, which includes a win over Strikeforce vet Pat Healy.

Fight Night 25 will take place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, and will be broadcast on Spike TV.

The card will be headlined by a welterweight bout between Jake Shields and Jake Ellenberger.
