Dillashaw-Barao II Cancelled, New UFC 177 Main Event Announced

2

The bad news continued for this Saturday’s UFC 177 pay-per-view in Sacramento, California.

In addition to the UFC debut of 2008 Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo being pulled from the card, the main event of the show has been changed just under 24 hours before the event.

Renan Barao, who was scheduled to face TJ Dillashaw in a rematch for the UFC Bantamweight Championship in the main event of the show, has been pulled from the card due to his inability to make weight.

As a result, UFC announced a replacement main event as Joe Soto, who was scheduled to make his UFC debut against Anthony Birchak on the preliminary card, will now challenge Dillashaw for the title in the main event of the evening.
