Ultimate Fighter 21 alum Michael Graves has been forced out of his December 10 bout against Danny Roberts due to injury, but his American Top Team squadmate Nathan Coy will step in to face "Hot Chocolate" at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
A former boxer, England’s Roberts left the sweet science behind to pursue mixed martial arts, and 11 pro wins later, he is in the UFC and ready to put a mark in the win column for his Blackzilians teammates when he faces Coy in his Octagon debut. Coy is no stranger to the heated South Florida rivalry, and after paying his dues over the years and competing for his squad on season 21 of The Ultimate Fighter, the veteran welterweight will kick off his UFC career as well on December 10.
Tickets for UFC Fight Night: Namajunas vs. VanZant are on sale now. The card will air live on UFC FIGHT PASS.
