An established and well-rounded finisher, Greg Jackson protégé Roberts (11-2) has collected four knockouts and five submissions to highlight his 11 wins. The 29-year-old now rides into the UFC on the wings of a five-fight win streak, punctuated by a unanimous decision win over Tony Lopez last July.
Across the cage, the 29-year-old Loeffler (25-5) finally enters the Octagon after a remarkable run on the regional scene. Altogether, 24 of "The Destroyer's" 25 wins have come via stoppage, with an astounding 21 ending in the first round. He last fought in September's Gladiator Challenge show, where he needed just seven seconds to knockout Marquis McKnight.
