UFC TUF Roland Delorme

On Wednesday, it was announced bantamweight Roland Delorme (Pictured) will serve as a last-minute substitute for Johnny Bedford and face Nick Denis at “UFC on FOX 3.”

Delorme made his claim to mixed martial arts fame as a contestant on “The Ultimate Fighter 14.” He made his big league debut in December by submitting Josh Ferguson in the show’s finale.

Speaking of successful Octagon premieres, Denis posted a quick knockout over Joseph Sandoval this past January.

No word on why Bedford was forced to withdraw.

The May 5th event takes place inside IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. A lightweight affair between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller will headline the festivities.
