Rolly Delorme to Welcome Bibiano Fernandes to the UFC
Delorme (8-1) is unbeaten in the UFC with two victories – both by submission. The Winnipeg fighter’s latest win was over fellow Canadian Nick Denis this past May on the UFC on Fox 3 card. He will hope to make it three in a row at UFC 149.
Fernades (11-3) is the reigning DREAM Bantamweight champion. The one time Featherweight champion lost that belt and entered the DREAM Bantamweight tournament where he defeated Takafumi Otsuka, Rodolfo Marques and Antonio Banuelos to win the title. Fernandes trains out of British Columbia.
Top MMA News asked Rolly for his thoughts on this bout. The WAMMA fighter sent this comment,
“I have made a name beating guys that I was not supposed to beat. Why stop now? I fight my best when someone’s trying to hurt me.”
The two fighters join a long list of Canadians on the card including Claude Patrick, Ryan Jimmo, Mitch Gagnon, Nick Ring, Antonio Carvalho, Chris Clements, and Mitch Clarke.
