Bantamweight standout Bibiano Fernandes (11-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has signed with the UFC and will make his promotional debut against fellow 135-pounder Roland Delorme (8-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) next month at UFC 149.

UFC officials today announced the booking.

UFC 149 takes place July 21 at Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo headlines against title challenger Erik Koch.

With the pay-per-view main card already announced, Fernandes vs. Delorme could end up on the prelims, which FX and Facebook are expected to carry.

If you're a TUF noob, get ready for Bibiano. Dude is a top 10 BW imo, and his opponent Roland Delorme is a fuckin beast! Real pumped for this one.

Stoked to see Fernandes FINALLY with the ufc. He's a killer at 135 and very well rounded in general. I like his chances of being a factor in the ufc.

Would kind of like to see Kawajiri and Hansen come to UFC too. But this is still good.

Kawajiri, IMO, would do pretty good because he's a GnPer with good wrestling and ground control
