22-Davey-Grant-TUF-18-Finale-w-478x270The UFC Fight Night 37 card slated for March 8 in London features several homegrown talents. Even the main event features England’s own Jimi Manuwa, as he attempts to derail the title aspirations of Alexander Gustafsson.

The latest fight added to the card pits another Englishman, Davey Grant, against Canadian fighter Roland Delorme, according to UFC officials.

Grant (8-2) made his way to the UFC via the Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate season of The Ultimate Fighter. A member of Team Rousey, he fought his way to the final, where he succumbed to Chris Holdsworth, finishing as the season’s runner-up.

Delorme (9-2, 1 NC) has been fighting in the Octagon since late 2011. He currently has three victories, one loss, and one no-contest result. His one loss – a split decision to Alex Caceres – came in his most recent bout at UFC 165 in Toronto last September.
