Greg Jackson trained and instructor at the New Mexico gym middleweight Buddy Roberts gets an immense opportunity in his second UFC fight as he steps in to face top 10 middleweight Yushin Okami on short notice at UFC 150. Roberts was already competing on the card against Colorado native Chris Camozzi, but now moves up in the card to face Okami instead as Rousimar Palhares sits out due to a knee injury during training.
This bout will be in the main card. UFC 150 takes place on August 11 from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. In the main event lightweight champion Benson Henderson will rematch his last opponent Frankie Edgar.
