Roland Delorme in for injured Johnny Bedford against Nick Denis at UFC on FOX 3

An injury has knocked Johnny Bedford out of his second fight in the UFC with an injury and fellow Ultimate Fighter 14 alumnus Roland Delorme has been tabbed as his replacement.

Delorme will face Nick Denis on the preliminary portion of UFC on FOX 3. The card is set for May 5 from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Delorme (7-1) defeated Josh Ferguson via Rear-Naked Choke at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale. All seven of his wins have involved some form of finish with five coming by way of submission.

Comparably, Denis (11-2) made his UFC debut in impressive fashion, knocking out Joseph Sandoval with elbows while standing. He too has stopped every opponent he’s beaten though the bulk of his success has been the result of striking.

MMAFighting was the first to report on the change in the fight.
