Just one week out from when UFC 177 will take place in Sacramento, the promotion has announced that Damon Jackson has stepped up on short notice, and will face Yancy Medeiros.

The Legacy FC featherweight champ, who will be making his UFC debut, is replacing the injured Justin Edwards.

Jackson (9-0) is coming off a submission win over UFC vet Leonard Garcia at Legacy FC 33 in July.

Medeiros (9-2), on the other hand, was choked out by Jim Miller in his last fight at UFC 172 in April.

UFC 177 will be hosted by Sacramento’s Sleep Train Arena, and will feature bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw versus former champ Renan Barao.
