REPLAY UFC 177: Dillashaw vs. Soto weigh-ins
AUG 29, 2014 6:00p ET
Following a drastic change to the UFC 177 fight card, the new main event is official as bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw will face off with newcomer Joe Soto in the headline bout from Sacramento.
Former champion Renan Barao was forced off the card after falling ill during his weight cut on Friday and ultimately upon the advice of medical personel, he was pulled from the show.
Soto steps into the main event with a 15-2 record as the former bantamweight champion from Bellator with wins over current UFC fighter Wilson Reis and former WEC veteran Chad George. He's currently riding a six-fight win streak although he's certainly facing long odds to win his upcoming bout against Dillashaw.
Earlier in the day, Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo was also forced off the card after suffering a similar fate to Barao while weight cutting and his fight with Scott Jorgensen was scrapped as well.
Here are the full weigh-in results from Sacramento
