Roland Camille Roger Delorme (born December 18, 1983) is a Canadian mixed martial artist currently fighting in the bantamweight division in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He was a competitor on Spike TV's The Ultimate Fighter: Team Bisping vs. Team Miller.[2]

MMA career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Delorme amassed a 6–1 record before going on The Ultimate Fighter, fighting exclusively in his native Canada.

The Ultimate Fighter[edit]

Delorme was picked last for Team Miller after beating B.J. Ferguson by triangle choke in the preliminary fights. He did not make the semi-finals, as he lost to TJ Dillashaw by submission at the end of the second round after being outwrestled and constantly being taken down throughout the fight.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Delorme fought Josh Ferguson at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale, winning via submission in the third round.[3]

Delorme fought Nick Denis on May 5, 2012 at UFC on Fox: Diaz vs. Miller, replacing an injured Johnny Bedford.[4] He beat Denis by rear-naked choke at 4:59 of an action-packed first round where both fighters were rocked until Delorme rallied and submitted Denis.

Delorme was briefly linked to a bout against promotional newcomer Bibiano Fernandes on July 21, 2012 at UFC 149.[5] However, Fernandes did not sign with the UFC. Delorme instead faced Francisco Rivera at the event.[6] He lost via KO at 4:19 of the first round. The result, however, was later changed to a No Contest when it was revealed Rivera had tested positive for a banned substance.[7]

Delorme faced Edwin Figueroa on June 15, 2013 at UFC 161.[8] He won the exciting back-and-forth fight by unanimous decision.

Delorme then faced Alex Caceres on September 21, 2013 at UFC 165.[9] He lost the back-and-forth fight via split decision.

Delorme was expected to face Davey Grant on March 8, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 37.[10] However the fight was cancelled after the weigh ins the day before the event due to Grant suffering a torn meniscus.[11][12]

Delorme faced promotional newcomer Michinori Tanaka on June 14, 2014 at UFC 174.[13] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.

Delorme next faced promotional newcomer Yuta Sasaki on August 23, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 48.[14] He lost the fight via submission in the first round.
