UFC 177 Falls Apart One Day Before The Event

The UFC's recent string of bad luck in executing events has hopefully reached a zenith with today's debacle. Here's the rundown of the day's troubles:

1. Renan Barao pulled out of the main event citing medical concerns. Unheralded Joe Soto will step in to fight champion TJ Dillashaw.
2. Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo withdrew from his fight with Scott Jorgensen due to medical concerns. Cejudo has a short history of pulling out of fights due to weight cutting issues. No replacement has been named for the fight.
3. Yancy Medeiros and Ramsey Nijem both missed weight on their first attempts, but both were able to take the extra allotted time to successfully cut the necessary weight.

In the aftermath of these events, Dana White has stated that Renan Barao will need to take (and win) another fight before being granted a rematch with Dillashaw (or whoever the champion may be after tomorrow night's event). Dana also stated that Henry Cejudo will not be allowed to take a fight at 125 lbs due to his continued inability to make the weight.

The Manhunt Has Ended, War Machine In Custody

Dog The Bounty Hunter and his crew are returning home empty handed. In the end, it was the US Marshals' office that caught Jon "War Machine" Koppenhaver. He was arrested in Simi Valley, California today, where he will be enjoying his meals on metal plates while he awaits extradition to Las Vegas to face charges for assaulting and nearly killing his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack.

War Machine Assaults Ex-Girlfriend, On The Run From Police

Former Ultimate Fighter contestant War Machine (Jon Koppenhaver) allegedly (which we have to say until the courts decide otherwise) assaulted his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack and is now wanted by Las Vegas law enforcement, although his whereabouts are unknown. Koppenhaver allegedly showed up at Mack's house in Las Vegas and began an assault on her and a friend that left Mack hospitalized with a laundry list of severe injuries.

Dog the Bounty Hunter, in what is a smart marketing maneuver, has taken up the case and is now (allegedly) on the hunt for Koppenhaver.
