Roosevelt Roberts

Roosevelt Roberts with his intimidating demeanor is nicknamed “The Predator” inside the MMA cage. He hails from Lathrop, California in the United States and gets to represent the Adrenaline Martial Arts. Roberts is just at his prime age of 27 years old and this six-foot-one fighter gets to compete naturally at the lightweight division. He has only lost twice in a dozen professional matches and five of those wins came from submissions. It has been a tough 2020 for Roberts and after winning over Brok Weaver, his next two matches resulted in a loss and no-contest. His most recent was with Kevin Croom in UFC Fight Night 177 and that was overturned by NSAC. 

Ignacio Bahamondes

Ignacio Bahamondes is a very young fighter at 23 years old and he came all the way from the country of Chile. He has been busy training and polishing his MMA skills at the Valle Flow Striking fight team. Bahamodres carries the ring name as “La Jaula” and this six-foot-one lightweight has a professional record of 11-4. Those victories are divided into eight knockouts and three decisions. After earning a ticket to join the UFC roster in Dana White’s Contender Series back in November, Bahamondes made his debut against John Makdessi in UFC on ABC 2. That match ended in a tight split decision favoring Makdessi.
