Daniel Roberts to make UFC debut against John Howard during “UFC on Versus”

UFC newcomer Daniel Roberts has recently been tabbed to face off with John Howard at “UFC on Versus“, replacing an injured Anthony Johnson.

The news of the change was first reported by, who confirmed the match-up through Howard’s management.

“UFC on Versus” is set for March 21 from Broomfield, Colorado while airing on – you guessed it – the Versus network.

Jon Jones will square off with Brandon Vera in a light heavyweight match-up as the event’s headliner.

The undefeated Roberts sports an unblemished record of 9-0 with seven of his victories coming by way of submission, while Howard holds a career record of 13-4 with an undefeated UFC record of 3-0.

  • Dufresne says:

    It sucks that Johnson got hurt, but this is still shaping up to be a hell of a card. Hopefully this guy comes in ready for a fight and isn’t too affected by the big show jitters.

  • Rece Rock says:

    I just wanna see jones/ vera… jones seems to be the real deal and it shouldn’t be long before we are talking about him being a contender… we’ll see what happens
