Welterweights Danny Roberts, Dominique Steele to Square off at UFC 197

By Mike Fridley Feb 18, 2016

The Ultimate Fighting Championship revealed another scrap for its stacked UFC 197 card.

Welterweights Danny Roberts and Dominique Steele will collide on the bill, which goes down April 23 at the MGM in Las Vegas and will be headlined by the long-awaited rematch between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier. In addition, UFC 125-pound king Demetrious Johnson will take on No. 1 contender Henry Cejudo.

Roberts (12-1, 1-0 UFC) impressed in his Octagon debut with a first-round submission of Nathan Coy. The Next Generation UK product is a proven finisher, having submitted or knocked out 10 of his 13 professional opponents.

Steele (14-6, 1-1 UFC) is also a potent finisher, as he proved with a vicious knockout slam of Dong Hyun Kim last November. The 28-year-old Cincinnati native has won three of his last four bouts.
