A couple of injuries have re-shaped the upcoming UFC on FOX 3 fight card, Darren Uyenoyama has been forced to pull out of his fight with John Dodson due to an undisclosed injury, and now Johnny Bedford is now pulling out of his fight with Nick Denis for the same reason. Now Denis and Dodson will have to change their game plans up as they have been assigned new opponents for UFC on FOX 3.
John Dodson will now take on freshly signed flyweight prospect Tim Elliott, Elliott is currently riding a 8 fight win streak. Back in December Elliott KO'd Jens Pulver with a flying knee. Elliott brings a 8-2-1 record into his UFC debut against Dodson.
Delorme was also part of the cast of The Ultimate Fighter 14, but was eliminated in the quarter-final round by TJ Dillashaw. Delorme rebounded at the TUF 14 finale with a submission win over Josh Ferguson. The Canadian Delorme will now face Canadian Nick Denis who burst onto the scene with a fantastic striking performance at UFC on FX: Guillard vs. Miller, in his debut, Denis displayed his sharp striking skills and elbows, taking only a mere 22 seconds to KO Joseph Sandoval using standing elbows.
Delorme definitely has his work cut out for him against Denis. This could also be the first time 2 Canadians fought each other on a UFC card.
