UFC 149 Update: Chris Clements Fills in for Alves, Bibiano Fernandes Debut Set

Bibiano FernandesA pair of bouts have been added to the UFC’s trip to Calgary for UFC 149. Canadian striker Chris Clements will step in for an injured Thiago Alves against Siyar Bahadurzada. Also on the card, former Dream bantamweight champion Bibiano Fernandes (pictured) will make his UFC debut against rising Canadian prospect Roland Delorme.

Bibiano Fernandes coming to the UFC further fuels speculation about Dream’s rumored demise. Fighting out of Vancouver, Fernandes is a multi-time World BJJ champion with an MMA record of 11-3. One of those losses being to UFC 148 co-headliner Urijah Faber.

Both Clements and Delorme are coming off victories at UFC 145 and UFC on Fox 3 respectively.

UFC 149 takes place July 21 in Calgary, Alberta. The event will be headlined by a featherweight title fight between champion Jose Aldo and Erik Koch.
