Roland Delorme meets Edwin Figueroa in hometown fight at UFC 161 in Winnipeg



It’s official! Hometown fighter Roland Delorme will meet Edwin Figueroa in a bantamweight contest at UFC 161 which goes down on June 15, 2013 from inside the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

News of this booking came earlier today by officials of the promotion.

This will mark Delorme’s third UFC bout, with his last loss being overturned due to his opponent Francisco Rivera testing positive for a banned substance.

Delorme, who will fight in front of his hometown is delighted to have the opportunity to test himself against Edwin Figueroa who is a seasoned bantamweight vet.

Figueroa’s last loss comes to that of Francisco Rivera back at UFC 156 in Las Vegas when he suffered a TKO beat-down.

The event is expected to feature an Interim Bantamweight Championship bout between the current champion Renan BarĂ£o, and former WEC Bantamweight Champion and top contender Eddie Wineland.
