Bantamweights Roland Delorme and Davey Grant will square off March 8 at O2 Arena in London.
The matchup, announced Monday by the UFC via Twitter, will serve as part of UFC Fight Night 37 “Gustafsson vs. Manuwa,” which will see top light heavyweights Alexander Gustafsson and Jimi Manuwa tangle in the main event.
Delorme, 30, officially holds a 3-1 mark in his Octagon career, with a June 2013 loss to Francisco Rivera having been changed to a no-contest. The Canadian bounced back from that knockout by topping Edwin Figueroa but suffered a split-decision loss in his last outing against “The Ultimate Fighter” contestant Alex Caceres.
Another reality show alum, Grant succumbed to a second-round rear-naked choke from Chris Holdsworth in the November final of “TUF 18.” The loss snapped an eight-fight winning streak for the 28-year-old Englishman, who had not tasted defeat since July 2009.
