Roland Delorme vs Francisco Rivera Added to UFC 149

A promising bantamweight tilt has been added to UFC 149 on July 21 as Roland Delorme and Francisco Rivera will do battle inside the octagon.

Delorme (8-1), recently coming off of a thrilling “Round of the Year” candidate in his first round rear-naked choke win over Nick Denis, enters the cage with a 2-0 record inside the promotion after his quarterfinal loss on The Ultimate Fighter 14.

Rivera (8-2), recently took a lopsided decision over Alex Soto, his first Zuffa win after being bounced form the WEC behind a pair of losses. Originally slated to compete on this weekend’s UFC on FX 4 event, “Cisco” was forced to withdraw due to staph infection, but looks to be back in time to face Delorme in this battle of bantamweight prospects.
