In an interview with MMA Junkie, Danny Roberts (9-1) says he'll start making a case for why he should get into the UFC starting with his fight against Juan Manuel Suarez (13-5) at Cage Warriors 64.
On getting ready to go to the UFC: "I feel like I'm close, but at the same time, I've still got a lot to learn. I think a few more fights would do me well."
On his opponent: "I've had a look at Manuel Suarez, and I think he's a very accomplished fighter. He's very similar to me. Stylistically, he's got a lot of strengths – I can't really see that many weaknesses. Because I come from a boxing background, I've kind of been determined to learn all the different aspects of the game. When it comes to the way me and Suarez are going to match up, I think I've got the physical strength and I can't see it going the distance."
On why he wants to go to the UFC: "I want to prove myself against some tough opponents. The UFC has got the best in the world, and I want to be a part of that and stay a part of that. I don't want to get one fight, get a t-shirt and be off. I'd like to be able to get in the UFC, make a statement and stay there – be someone that people like."
