Joining the world’s largest combat sports promotion will be lightweight Roosevelt Roberts (6-0), middleweight Ian Heinisch (11-1), featherweight Jordan Griffin (17-5), and heavyweight Juan Adams (4-0).

“I’m extremely ready, I just want to tear it up,” Griffin said after the fight (via MMA Junkie). “I’m ready to tear some (expletive) up. I just want to fight the hardest guys, though.
