Daniel Roberts UFC 121

Daniel Roberts

It appears Daniel Roberts will get the chance to fight alongside his teammate Jake Shields at UFC 129, as he is set to face Claude Patrick in a welterweight bout on the Toronto card.

Roberts made the announcement via his personal Twitter page late Friday night.

“I fight Claude Patrick at UFC 129,” Roberts wrote.

Roberts (12-1) didn’t waste any time getting a new fight after submitting Greg Soto at UFC 125 just last weekend. It was Roberts second submission victory in a row, and third win overall in the UFC.

Training in California alongside Shields and Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez, as well as Nick and Nate Diaz, Roberts has continued to show improvement in each fight. He’ll look to show that again when he returns in late April.

Fighting in his hometown of Toronto will be Claude Patrick (13-1), returning to action after a dominant performance over former “Ultimate Fighter” winner James Wilks at UFC 120 in England.

It was Patrick’s second fight and second win in the UFC. Now he gets the chance to fight in his hometown for UFC 129.

While the event has been announced by the UFC, no bouts have been confirmed as televised or otherwise except for the main event between champion Georges St-Pierre and top contender Jake Shields.

(UPDATED at 9:15 a.m. on Jan. 9, 2001 to note this is a welterweight contest.)
