UFC on Versus 4 results: Rich Attonito defeats Daniel Roberts by unanimous decision (29-27, 30-27, 29-28).

Attonito dominated Daniel Roberts from pillar to post and twice could have finished a stunned Roberts but failed to go for the kill when he had the chance. Roberts did manage to get Attonito down in the second and take his back but couldn't get the rear naked choke and Attonito escaped and recovered.

Roberts had a huge disadvantage on the feet but gamely attacked with lunging punches and awkward superman punch attempts. Attonito was slow to take advantage of his advantages, instead waiting for Roberts to tire almost to the point of helplessness before upping the aggression.

By the third round Roberts was virtually inert and presented a flat-footed, motionless target for Attonito. Attonito finally upped the ante and dropped Roberts with a right high kick but he failed to get the finish when he followed Roberts to the ground and let him recover. Later in the round, after many inconclusive exchanges, Roberts again got caught standing stock-still by a right hook that once again put him on Queer Street. Attonito was content to cruise to the decision though and let Roberts off the hook.
