UFC officials have signed Roland Delorme and Francisco Rivera to a bantamweight contest for July’s UFC 149 card in Canada. The contest is slated for the prelims.
UFC 149 takes place July 21 from the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The main event features Urijah Faber vs. Renan Barao for the interim UFC bantamweight title.
Delomore (8-1) is a perfect 2-0 in his UFC career, defeating Nick Denis and Josh Ferguson. He was set to face Bibiano Fernandes before contract negotiations between the UFC and the ex-DREAM champion fail through.
Rivera (8-2) defeated Alex Soto to improve to 1-1 in the UFC.
