Roosevelt Roberts Dana White Contender Series alumni is 4-1 now with the UFC. Latest win coming in the main card, Rear naked choking Brok Weaver. Somewhat of a coming out party for Roosevelt Roberts, Starting 2020 the right way and can end it being a potential top 15 UFC Lightweight.
Roberts will become a serious challenge to the Lightweight Division with his jiu-jitsu, Still has room to improve and will see that improvement in his next fight against Matt Frevola.
Roosevelt Roberts came from a tough upbringing in Miami, In his teenage years was a drug dealer to support himself. Than his life changed once he started training in MMA, Motivated to provide for his daughter.
Looking back where he came from no way Roosevelt Roberts will never give up.
“If somebody would have told me that when I was younger, I would have never believed it,” Roberts said. “I’d probably be doing some crazy stuff or living a crazy-ass lifestyle, but I definitely would not be where I’m at now. It came further down the line where it started becoming a dream of mine. Back then, I was living so fast, thinking live fast, die young, so I didn’t really see past the next year. I always just looked for the next day.”https://www.ufc.com/news/roosevelt-roberts-never-imagined-having-this-life
Watching Roosevelt Roberts living his dream, No more living day by day as he’s living for the future. Roberts in future can become a top 15 Lightweight in 2021.
Two more fights I expect for Roosevelt Roberts in 2020 with fighting Matt Frevola and fighters like Lando Vannata, Renato Moicano or Luis Pena.
Roosevelt Roberts vs Vannata or Moicano would be great fights to watch in the winter of 2020.
Defeating either Vannata, Pena or Moicano will be a great end to the year 2020. Year that begins the rise for Roosevelt Roberts.
