On episode 4 of UFC 177 Embedded, the cursed fight card becomes a Cinderella story as the main event changes on weigh-in day. Title challenger and former champ Renan Barao bows out for medical reasons, creating a once-in-a-lifetime chance for Joe Soto, a former beltholder in other organizations about to make his UFC debut on the prelim card, until he got the call that would change his life. T.J. Dillashaw proves he’s a company man and true champion willing to fight anyone, anytime by accepting a new challenger on one day’s notice.
UFC President Dana White lambastes the negative media and implores his fighters to seize the opportunity to prove all the doubters wrong.
