Bibiano Fernandes is now a UFC BW

And he's fighting Roland Delorme at UFC 149.

In more UFC 149 news, highly-touted Bibiano Fernandes is joining the growing line for a crack at the UFC bantamweight title, and his first test inside the Octagon will be against Canadian prospect Roland Delorme.

While it certainly is devastating that DREAM is folding and Japanese MMA is all but utterly dead, this news is fantastic. The UFC really only needs to sign Dantas at a later time to monopolize the division.

Hopefully Kawajiri follows suit, unless he's satisfied with fighting in OneFC.
