Due to two fights being pulled and adjusted at the last minute, there will only be eight fights taking place tomorrow night (August 30, 2014) for UFC 177. All 16 fighters taking part in Saturday’s UFC 177 fights will step on the scale Friday evening, and we’ll have the live video here at MMAOddsBreaker.com. In the main event, UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw and short notice replacement Joe Soto will have to make the banatamweight limit of 135 pounds. Former UFC champion Renan Barao was forced off the card after reported weigh-cutting issues. Also pulled from the event was the Henry Cejudo vs Scott Jorgensen flyweight bout. Anthony Birchak, who was originally expected to fight Soto on the preliminary card, will no longer compete on the fight card either. The UFC 177 weigh-in takes place at 7 p.m. ET at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, Calif., and the video is right here:
