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.

Joe is good. Not undisputed world champ good but regional champ good. Got starched by another wrestler and took a mauling. As far as credentials go,joe is a good wrestler.

He subbed Joe Warren very quick, though perhaps Warren isn't considered elite anymore.

I'd love to see Takaya get a shot. Give him the right match ups and you are guaranteed entertaining fights

I know it's not as important as BJ or Randy but Bibio held belts at 145 first then 135 in dream. He has amazing potential. Just needs to destroy a wrassler to get validation.

So he's rolling with Mighty Mouse then, interesting. I suppose its not a potential issue anymore seeing that MM is a flyweight now? Is Pele still in Langley? Gill? Frederickson?

He seems good at fighting cans, no offence.

Takaya has had a lot of big wins in Japan but has been absolutely woeful (and completely winless, I think) whenever he's made the trip to the US. I still think the wins he's strung together in Japan warrant one more chance. Takaya vs. TKZ would be a great fight.
