Forrest Petz will be fighting Daniel Roberts on just over two weeks notice saturday July 3 in vegas, Carwin vs Lesnar.

Forrest is much improved since his last stint in the UFC and will be ready to go. Roberts is a tough grappler who was doing very well and winning before being KO'd by John "Doomsday" Howard in his debut. I have met Daniel before and is very good, dude but Forrest is a training partner and good friend whos been waiting for his shot back in for a while. two weeks notice or not!

My source would be the man

I like Petz - He's got a solid hook. Fun to watch fight. Love to see a rematch between him and hardy.

What is the story on Petz being used as a ringer for Toughman fights? "If you recognize the name Corey Fischer, it’s because he used to be associated with Toughman boss Art Dore. Fischer also was named by an Ohio Athletic Commission watchdog group a few years ago for using professional fighters in amateur Toughman events (including MMA fighter Forrest Petz)."

thanks. There are very few guys who can stuff Robert's takedowns and his BJJ is very good. This should be a great fight. Good matchmaking

Awesome news. Petz is a game fighter who never leaves a fight without giving it his all.I remember his fight with Morgan that was so one sided, one of the judges scored it 30-24. I can't recall someone getting beat that resoundingly on the judges scorecard.Good to see him getting a second chance in the UFC!

Petz vs. Hardy was a great fight with a controversial decision. Afterwards there was some miscommunication by the OAC regarding a drug test for Hardy. They were supposed to notify him of when to take the test, but never did and ultimately suspended him for 180 days.
