Khama Worthy (9-6) is set to return to lightweight for the first time since 2013, as he will face Mike Roberts (6-6-1) at Pinnacle FC 16 later this month in Pittsburgh.

“The Death Star” has competed eight times for his hometown promotion, compiling a 7-1 record. That included a run of six straight wins from 2013-2014, but since that time he’s just 2-4 with all four losses via knockout. His most recent win was a submission over Adrian Vilaca at Gladiators of the Cage 21 in 2016.

Roberts competes for the first time since 2016, when he topped Joshua Shaffer at Hardrock MMA 79. He’s produced four of his wins via stoppage, including three submissions. He has notable appearances against UFC fighters Mike Perry and Jason Knight. He actually holds a 1-1 record against Knight, handing the UFC featherweight his first loss in 2012.
