Former Bantamweight Champion Trashes UFC 177 Main Event: 'F--KING BULLS--T'

To be fair, I'm not sure the promotion had much choice, but there is still plenty of frustration to go around. Find out how the story ends right here.

Barao out of UFC 177, Former TPF and BFC Champ Joe Soto steps in against TJ Dillishaw
Barao out of UFC 177, Former TPF and BFC Champ Joe Soto steps in against TJ Dillishaw WOW UFC 177 is cursed. UFC 177 already featured one of the most maligned pay-per-view lineups in promotion history. That was before Renan Barao dropped out of his bantamweight title rematch against T.J. Dillashaw on Friday afternoon. According to a report from the Brazilian outlet Combate, Barao passed out while cutting weight on Friday and was taken to a Sacramento hospital. Not surprisingly, the Brazilian did not show up for licensing or medicals with the California State Athletic Commission. A source close to the bout told Sherdog.com that Joe Soto will now get the 135-pound title shot against Dillashaw.
