In Conversation: Danny Roberts

I catch up with British welterweight Danny Roberts after his UFC Hamburg win over David Zawada

Danny had just returned home from Germany after a tough assignment against German KSW veteran David Zawada, a late replacement opponent after Danny’s original opponent Alan Jouban was forced off the event.
