ORIGINAL: UFC completed the weigh-ins today for the UFC 177 card, which has suffered greatly this week with one of the originally scheduled main event fighters and an Olympic gold medal winner who was going to make his UFC debut. Renan Barao was forced to withdraw from the fight card earlier today due to medical issues. The UFC instead replaced Barao for the bantamweight title bout with Joe Soto, who makes his UFC debut with the fight. In addition, Olympic gold medal winner and undefeated fighter Henry Cejudo had to withdraw from his scheduled bout against Scott Jorgensen due to medical issues.
UFC 177 is set for Saturday, August 30 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacremento, California. The main card will be broadcast live on PPV. The prelims will be shown live on Fox Sports 1. Below are the full weigh-in results.
