UFC 177: Ruslan Magomedov to Fight Newcomer Richard Odoms
By FCF Staff
The line-up for UFC 177 continues to fill out, as a heavyweight fight between Ruslan Magomedov and newcomer Richard Odoms has been added to the August 30th event.
Magomedov (12-1) is coming off a successful Octagon debut, as the Russian fighter decisioned Viktor Pesta at a UFC Fight Night card in May.
Odoms (8-1) makes his way to the UFC having scored a UD victory over DJ Linderman in his last outing, while competing for Legacy FC. The only man to defeat the heavyweight to date is current UFC competitor Jared Rosholt.
UFC 177 will be hosted by the Sleep Train Center in Sacramento, and will feature bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw rematching Renan Barao.
