Las Vegas, NV | Roberts makes short work of Coy, winning via triangle choke in the first.
UFC Fight Night 80 will be held on December 10, 2015 at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Danny Roberts vs. Nathan Coy took place on the preliminary card which aired on UFC Fight Pass.
It was all stand-up early, neither guy getting the best of the exchanges, but both throwing with volume. Then, a leg kick from Roberts was caught by Coy, who took advantage by bringing things to the ground. Just as Brian Stann was beginning to compliment Coy’s top game, Danny Roberts starts working a triangle from his back.
And that’s it!
Kevin Herzog sees Coy go limp and steps in to stop things. It’s a technical submission for Roberts, who increases his win streak to six and improves to 1-0 in the UFC. Coy falls to 14-6
Official Result – Danny Roberts def. Nathan Coy via triangle choke (Rd.1, 2:46)
