Roli Delgado vs. Andre Winner

by Damon Martin | source:

A lightweight bout has been added to the UFC's upcoming return to England on Nov 14 as "Ultimate Fighter" season 9 runner-up, Andre Winner, returns to action for the first time since the show's finale to take on "Ultimate Fighter" season 8 fighter, Roli Delgado.

The news was confirmed to on Thursday by sources close to the fight.

Winner steps back into the Octagon after dropping a unanimous decision to fellow British fighter, Ross Pearson, in the lightweight finals for the show.

Spending the majority of career fighting in England, Winner will no doubt be the crowd favorite heading into the bout, but that also puts the pressure on the TUF 9 veteran to impress the hometown fans.

His opponent, Roli Delgado, makes his first appearance in the Octagon since early June when he lost a decision to another British fighter in Paul Kelly during the UFC's first show in Germany.

 Thats cool to see.  I'm from the us but a big fan of the uk mma scene.  Kind of sucks how the last tuf made people go ape shit around here, but I guess they did their job.  Im actually rooting for a couple guys on the 105 card coming up.....I'm rooting for Peter Sobotta when he fights against Demarques Johnson, as well as Dan Hardy and Terry Etim!

ttt because I just realized that "pornstache" and "porn stash" are too entirely different concepts, yet shall forever be intrinsically linked.
