The line-up for UFC 177 has been completed with a bantamweight fight between two UFC newcomers, as the promotion has announced Anthony Birchak will face Joe Soto.

UFC 177 will go down August 30th at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.

Soto (15-2) will make his Octagon debut less than a month after he tapped out Terrion Ware at a Tachi Palace Fights card on August 7th. The Bellator vet has won six straight fights.

Birchak (11-1) joins the UFC riding a five fight win streak, which includes winning the Maximum Fighting Championship’s bantamweight title.

UFC 177 will feature a rematch between bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barao in the main event. In the co-headliner, flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson will fight Chris Cariaso.
