Roop (12-9-1) was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 8 and has had two tenures with the UFC so far, and competed in the WEC as well. He is probably best known for his head-kick knockout of Chan Sung Jung at WEC 51, and his win over then-top contender Josh Grispi at the TUF 13 Finale. He is just 1-3 in his most recent UFC run though, and has lost two in a row.
The main event of UFC 149 will see UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo defend his title against an opponent to be named.
