UFC 177: TJ Dillishaw vs Renan Barao
The thread title is misleading because Barao has been scratched from the card due to illness as he tried to make weight yesterday. His replacement is Joe Soto, a first timer in the UFC with a 15-2 record. Soto fought for the Bellator bantamweight title vs Joe Warren after winning their tourney.

This card had a serious lack of star power before Barao pulled out, so might want to watch this one at a drinking/dining establishment near you rather than purchase it. That's what I'm a gonna do... The fights could still be good and new stars may emerge. We will see.

Next up, Danny Castillo vs Tony Ferguson in the lightweight division.

Rd 1- ferguson tries to cut the cage off. He lands a body kick and a Couple of rights. Ferguson slips as he kicks and gets up as he locks in a Darce choke from the bottom. He can not sink it deep enough and Castillo is fighting to escape. He does and now is in Tony's guard, though he's looking to pass. And they finish in same guard as round ends.

Gotta give round to Ferguson for his sub/ choke attempt. Wins round 10-9

Re: UFC 177: TJ Dillishaw vs Renan Barao
Rd 2- ferguson goes forward throwing but then Danny comes back with a flurry. Danny lands some punches with little power and Ferguson answers with a knee to the body. On the ground and both trying leg locks but Danny gets side mount, now half guard. Ferguson sweeps and gets on top but Danny scrambles back to top control. Tony lands some elbows from the bottom. Castillo not mounting much offense on top, and round ends.

Castillo better on the feet even though he didn't do much from top control, still wins round 10-9 imo

Re: UFC 177: TJ Dillishaw vs Renan Barao
Rd 3- tony wades in throwing combos and Castillo counters well and gets tony down again. Tony looking for kimura on the ground but they scramble to their feet. Danny has Tony's back and drops him to the mat. And again he drops him and gets in his guard. Again, no work from Danny on top while Tony is relentless in using elbows from bottom. Castillo finishes the final 10 seconds applying an arm triangle but can't finish.

Castillo wins round again 10-9 and should get the decision victory. Officially it's a split decision for Tony Ferguson! The crowd boos heartily!
