The top international bantamweight outside of the UFC is joining its ranks.
Brazilian Bibiano Fernandes, who was the DREAM 135-pound champion, has signed with the UFC and will make his debut against Roland Delorme at UFC 149, the promotion announced on Monday.
Fernandes (11-3) had spent most of his career at featherweight, winning DREAM's title in that division as well before dropping down to bantamweight. He holds notable wins over Joachim Hansen, Joe Warren and Antonio Banuelos on his record.
