Thread: Roland Delorme vs. Alex Caceres joins UFC 165 as event's 13th fight

  1. Default Roland Delorme vs. Alex Caceres joins UFC 165 as event's 13th fight

    Bantamweights Roland Delorme (9-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Alex Caceres (8-5 MMA, 3-3 UFC) will meet at next month's UFC 165 event in the show's 13th matchup.

    UFC officials recently announced the bout.

    UFC 165 takes place Sept. 21 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and Facebook.

    Delorme vs. Caceres is expected to be part of the Facebook stream.

    Delorme is technically undefeated over his past four fights, all of which have come in the UFC. It includes submission wins over Josh Ferguson and Nick Denis, as well as a recent decision victory over Edwin Figueroa. However, a no-contest with Francisco Rivera initially was a TKO loss, but the latter failed a post-fight drug test due to an over-the-counter stimulant, and the bout was changed to a no-contest.

    Delorme, a Canadian who appeared on "The Ultimate Fighter 14," now meets Caceres, a "TUF 12" vet who returns from a suspension due to a failed marijuana test. It cost Caceres a split-decision win over Kyung Ho Kang, which was changed to a no-contest. Had it stood, the crafty "Bruce Leeroy" would have notched his third consecutive UFC win with the performance.

    The latest UFC 165 card includes:

    Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson - for light-heavyweight title
    Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland - for interim bantamweight title
    Matt Mitrione vs. Brendan Schaub
    Pat Healy vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov
    Francis Carmont vs. Constantinos Philippou
    Myles Jury vs. Mike Ricci
    Ivan Menjivar vs. Norifumi Yamamoto
    Chris Clements vs. Stephen Thompson
    Mitch Gagnon vs. Dustin Kimura
    Renee Forte vs. John Makdessi
    Mark Bocek vs. Michel Prazeres
    Nandor Guelmino vs. Daniel Omielanczuk
    Alex Caceres vs. Roland Delorme

    Why is this card not that appealing to me?
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.
