UFC 173: Barao vs. Dillashaw fight card set with 12 bouts

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Check out the current UFC 173 card, scheduled for May 24th in Las Vegas.

UFC 173 sure looks a lot different than it did a few weeks ago. UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman was forced off the card with a knee injury and his bout with Lyoto Machida was moved back to July, so the promotion was forced to scramble to fill the void. What they came up with was a bantamweight title fight and an exciting welterweight bout, along with a contender's bout at light heavyweight

With top contender Raphael Assuncao currently nursing a rib injury, champion Renan Barao will instead defend his title against Team Alpha Male's T.J. Dillashaw in the main event. The co-main is a light heavyweight bout between Daniel Cormier and Dan Henderson, while the middle of the main card will be anchored by a bout between Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger. Francisco Rivera will step into Dillashaw's place in a bout against Takeya Mizugaki that is on the main card as well.
