Roberts/Patrick and Pierson/Foster at UFC 129 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

UFC welterweight up and comer, Daniel Roberts has revealed that he’ll face Claude Patrick on the UFC 129 card on April 30th in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in what will likely be a main card bout and Canadian kickboxer, Sean Pierson and knockout artist, Brian Foster will meet on the same night in a welterweight bout.

Roberts, posting via his Twitter page, said:

“I fight Claude Patrick at UFC 129.”

Roberts rebounded from that disappointing first round TKO loss to John Howard early last year by racking up three wins in a row defeating both Forrest Petz, Mike Guymon and Greg Soto. Patrick is on a twelve fight winning streak and has already convincingly beat Ricardo Funch via submission and TUF 9 winner, James Wilks via unanimous decision.

Pierson made his octagon debut just last month, dominating former TUF cast member, Matt Riddle via unanimous decision at UFC 124 in Montreal and winning. Foster submitted the ever tough Matt Brown at UFC 123 one month earlier, as well as picking up a “Knockout of the Night” bonus against Forrest Petz in September.
