Welcome to CagedInsider’s coverage of UFC 204, a pay-per-view coming out of Manchester, England, and headlined by some Brit named Michael Bisping and some ancient human being named Dan Henderson.
At the top of the Fight Pass portion of the card, local boy Danny Roberts and American Mike Perry are throwing down.
These guys waste no time beating the hell out of each other, with Roberts staking his claim on his foe’s leg with low-kicks, and Perry walking forward throwing hard leather. It doesn’t take long for Roberts to lose his footing and for Perry to take his back, but eventually the Brit escapes, and in the final seconds Roberts is on shaky legs thanks to Perry trying to take his head off.
Round 2 sees Roberts continue his leg-kick onslaught, and though Perry is tottering like a tree falling prey to a lumberjack, he’s slinging hot fire. The bout turns into a Rock ‘Em-Sock ‘Em Robots fest, and it’s Roberts that ultimately goes down. Time runs out with Perry on top dropping bombs.
The third sees Perry carving out more flesh from the Brit. Roberts gives almost as good as he gets, but towards the end he eats a right hand a knee that drops him. Perry gets on top again, and this time his punches seal the deal.
Results: Mike Perry def. Danny Roberts via KO (Punches) at 4:40, R3
