Lightweights Ramsey Nijem and Carlos Diego Ferreira have been added to the UFC 177 lineup, officials announced recently.
Set for August 30 from Sacramento’s Sleep Train Arena, the event features a headline fight between bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw and Renan Barao.
Nijem (9-4) has picked up two straight victories, including a “Performance of the Night” win over Beneil Dariush recently. Prior to that, the alum of The Ultimate Fighter had dropped two straight to James Vick and Myles Jury.
Ferreira (10-0) won his debut with the promotion when he submitted Colton Smith in just 38 seconds earlier this year. That finish earned him a “Performance of the Night” honor, as well.
