Davey Grant didn't get the result he was looking for when he made it to the finals of The Ultimate Fighter 18 losing by submission to former housemate Chris Holdsworth last December.

Now the former Team Rousey standout will look to make good on his second chance with the UFC when he fights close to home in his next bout in early March against Roland Delorme. Grant (8-2) showed well-rounded skills all season when preparing for the Ultimate Fighter, but now he'll look to put on an even better performance following his recent set back against Holdsworth.

During his training for the Finale, Grant even managed to work in some time with his coach and good friend Ronda Rousey, but it's unknown if he'll venture back to the United States to get ready for this one or stay at home where the bout will also be taking place.

Delorme (9-2 1 NC) is also on the comeback trail after a loss to Alex Caceres in his last fight in September. The Canadian grappler has gone 3-1 with one no contest since he was a member of the Ultimate Fighter season 14.

The bantamweight bout between Grant and Delorme will take place as part of the UFC Fight Night card in London headlined by light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson against Jimi Manuwa in the main event. The card will air exclusively on the UFC's Fight Pass digital network service.
