UFC on Versus 4 Results: Rich Attonito Wears Down Daniel Roberts
It's a good thing the Facebook feed kick on when it did, otherwise I would've missed the show just put on by Rich "Raging Bull" Attonito and Daniel "Ninja" Roberts.
It was a nip-and-tuck affair for the first round and a half as the Raging Bull pressed his advantage on the feet while Ninja used every trick in his book to try to drag the tussle to the ground, finding success on more than one occasion. Alas, after Roberts was able to trip Attonito and take the latter's back, Rich persevered through Daniel's maneuvering for a rear-naked choke before eventually escaping out the back door.
That seemed to be Ninja's last gasp as he looked dog-tired for the remainder.
Exhausted, but not about to give up, Daniel Roberts showed a granite chin as the Raging Bull spend the better part of six minutes teeing off on his adversary. Rich blistered Daniel's rib cage as he was sitting on top him to end the second round and then took target practice from his feet for the final stanza.
Attonito repeatedly found Roberts' chin in the last five minutes, welted up his opponent's right leg with inside leg kicks and came "thisclose" to a stoppage after felling Ninja with a nice head kick. Roberts ultimately recovered from the kick and made it to the final horn, but his victory was only a moral one as Rich Attonito got the real thing.
Rich Attonito defeats Daniel Roberts by unanimous decision (29-27, 30-27, 29-28).
