Main Card

Danny Roberts

Danny “Hot Chocolate” Roberts is a welterweight fighter that is from Liverpool, Merseyside, England. He fights for Team McHale and stands at 6-foot-1. He is an interesting prospect coming to the UFC, but failed to live up to the hype.  In 2015, he had his first fight in the UFC against Nathan Coy with a triangle choke in the first round. He followed it up with a unanimous decision win over Dominique Steele. It was an up and down career for Roberts starting then with alternating wins and losses.

He is on a slump recently and lost his last two bouts against Miche Pereria and Claudio Henrique da Silva. He will certainly look to avoid losing another one in 2019. Roberts has been known to own a Swiss army knife of moves. He is a threat to giving you a KO blow and at the same time, he can creatively submit you.

Zelim Imadaev

Zelim Imadaev is a young 24-year-old welterweight fighter that hails from Moscow, Russia. Standing at 6’0”, he was undefeated in his first seven bouts before falling through a questionable majority decision against Max Griffin just this last April. Learning from his last fight, Imadaev will not relax against Danny Roberts. See him looking for the early KO and wanting hard to win his first bout in the UFC. Roberts has the experience, but Imadaev wants to attain his potential and his first UFC bout was a huge disappointment especially for those who have been following him since 2016. In this bout, he owns the advantage over Roberts and would probably be a KO win.

Roberts vs Imadaev Betting Picks

Imadaev is predicted to go for the KO blow in the early rounds. On the other hand, Roberts has the fight experience to check where he could attack his opponent. Expect “Hot Chocolate” to assess the situation first and see if he can take the Russian fighter’s power punch after punch.  UFC Live Betting sees Imadaev winning by  -253 but Roberts might get lucky since he has been fighting longer in the UFC. It is still good to bet for Roberts who owns the +197 but he has to take Imadaev further with the possibility of tiring him out. Roberts should take a page from Imadaev’s fight against Max Griffin and take it to the judges and stop a 3-fight losing streak from happening. Both fighters have something to prove here and would love to take a victory before the next decade begins.
