Dream featherweight champion Bibiano FernandesOn June 4, Bibiano Fernandes signed for his first fight with the UFC and one week later he is out due to injury.

The unfortunate injury plague of 2012 continues to haunt UFC matchmaker Joe Silva as Fernandes is the latest fighter to fall out of a fight after suffering an injury in training.

UFC officials announced the news on Monday.

Fernandes was one of the most sought after bantamweights in the free agent market. He was expected to face Roland Delorme at UFC 149 on July 21 in Calgary.

A former Dream champion, Fernandes will now have to wait until later in the year to hopefully make his long awaited UFC debut.

Delorme is expected to remain on the UFC 149 fight card, but a new opponent has not been secured yet.
