Francisco Rivera Faces Roland Delorme at UFC 149

“Card subject to change” has never been as useful as it is now.

Originally scheduled to face DREAM bantamweight champion Bibiano Fernandes at UFC 149 in Calgary, Roland Delorme finally has a new opponent.

Stepping up to face Delorme is Tachi Palace Fights standout Francisco Rivera, who picked up his first UFC win at the expense of Alex Soto back at UFC on FUEL TV 3. Rivera was originally scheduled to face off against Ken Stone at this weekend’s UFC on FX 4, where he was serving as an injury replacement, before a staph infection forced him out of the bout as well.

Delorme, who fell short on the 14th season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’, has started to hit his stride in the octagon, defeating Josh Ferguson and Nick Denis in his first two UFC outings.
