By FCF Staff
The line-up for UFC 174 continues to build, and the latest addition is a bantamweight fight between Roland Delorme and newcomer Michinori Tanaka.
UFC 174 will take place on June 14th, and will be hosted by Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The 135 pound match-up was reported by Sportnet’s Joe Ferraro and then re-tweeted by the UFC’s Canadian Twitter account.
Tanaka (9-0) arrives in the UFC having gone undefeated since he turned pro in 2010. The 23 year-old, Japanese fighter has fought for Shooto and more recently Pacific Xtreme Combat.
Delorme (9-2) will be looking to rebound from the split decision loss he incurred versus Alex Cacares at UFC 165 in September, after he decisioned Edwin Figueroa in June.
The 30 year-old Canadian is 3-1, with 1 no-contest, in his last 5 contests.
