Roberts (17-5-0) (undisclosed) will fight Tim Means (31-2-1) at a UFC event on June 19, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Roberts has not appeared in a UFC bout since November of 2019 after he was supposed to take on Nicolas Dalby on two separate occasions last year and neither of the fights ever happened. Roberts will have a minor disadvantage in height and reach and will need to punish Means with his powerful striking early on if he wants to stand a chance.

Roberts will take on Nicolas Dalby on "Fight Island" as part of the UFC Fight Night card on July 25, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Roberts was initially scheduled to fight Dalby at UFC London back in mid-March as a co-main event, but that was eventually called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Roberts was approximately a (+140) betting underdog prior to the bout being called off, so there's a good chance he will land around that number again this time around.

Roberts will no longer face Nicolas Dalby on Saturday with UFC London being moved to an unspecified location, Chisanga Malata of the Daily Express reports.
ANALYSIS
Roberts had been approximately a (+140) betting underdog for what was scheduled to be the co-main event slot, but he'll presumably be unable to obtain a work visa on short notice, especially considering the travels bans implemented as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19. Roberts also confirmed the bout's cancellation via his personal Instagram. It's unclear at this time if or when his matchup against Dalby will be rescheduled.
