Chaos erupted on Friday afternoon in Sacramento when, barely 24 hours away from fight night, Renan Barao was forced to withdraw from his rematch against UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw due to complications cutting weight, inflicting a fatal blow to an already less than stellar UFC 177 pay-per-view lineup.

Promotional newcomer Joe Soto, who three weeks ago became the Tachi Palace Fights bantamweight champion, will now challenge Dillashaw for the UFC title on one day's notice. For Soto, it's the opportunity of a lifetime, however not all parties involved were as pleased with the outcome.
