Danny Roberts is adamant he did not offer a verbal or physical submission at UFC on ESPN+ 5 and said Kevin Sataki wrongly stopped his bout with Claudio Silva . After a tough back-and-forth fight, Roberts (16-4 MMA, 5-3 UFC) got placed in a submission by Silva (13-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) in the third round of their welterweight matchup, which took place at The O2 in London. As the Brazilian attempted to torque an arm, Roberts appeared to elicit some sort of sound , causing referee Sataki to step in and wave it off. An emotional Roberts immediately protested the result and felt he was wronged, and UFC President Dana White made it clear he agreed . Silva had a differing opinion , and according to Roberts, there’s only one way to resolve the issue (via Instagram ): View this post on Instagram First things first, I would like to get one thing very clear: I did not submit, verbally or otherwise (play the fight/audio back). If I wanted to submit or tap out, I would have used my right hand -which was completely free at the time the referee ended the fight- to do so.
