Lineup for UFC 177 Gets Shuffled

 
With the move of the UFC flyweight title bout between Demetrious Johnson and Chris Cariaso to September's UFC 178 card, the fight's previous home - August 30th's UFC 177 event in Sacramento - got a little lineup shuffling.

Headlined by the five-round bout pitting hometown favorite T.J. Dillashaw defending his UFC bantamweight crown against the man he won it from, Renan Barao, UFC 177 will see a new co-main event, as the California turf war between lightweights Danny Castillo and Tony Ferguson moves up on the card.

Plus, the heavyweight battle between Ruslan Magomedov and Richard Odoms moves on to the main card, with another heavyweight clash - Anthony Hamilton vs. Ruan Potts - finding a new spot on the FOX Sports 1 prelims portion of the event.
