Barao-Dillashaw to Headline UFC 173

Weidman-Machida out! Barao-Dillashaw in for UFC 173.

In a move to save the UFC 173 main event set on May 24 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, the UFC has moved TJ Dillashaw in the main event to challenge UFC bantamweight Champion Renan Barao.

Dillashaw has won five of his last six fights . He's beaten Walel Watson, Vaughan Lee, Issei Tamura, Hugo Viana and Mike Easton and lost a disputed decision to Raphael Assuncao in Sao Paolo, Brazil, a bout that was named Fight of the Night.

He was originally pencilled to fight Takeya Mizugaki in the main card of UFC 173.

Barao is fresh off knocking out Dillashaw's team mate Urijah Faber at UFC 169.


Is this too much for Dillashaw to handle? Will Barao up his record to 33-0 or will revenge be exacted by the Team Alpha Male prospect? The floor is yours Maniacs
