Upcoming UFC Cards Receive Changes, New Fight To Lineups

ufc fight night 51

A pair of upcoming events have received changes to the scheduled lineup, as UFC 177 has picked up a new fight, while UFC Fight Night 51 has a new fighter.

At UFC 177, Cain Carrizosa and Chris Wade will make their Octagon debuts. The card takes place August 30 from Sacramento and features T.J. Dillashaw defending his bantamweight title against Renan Barao.

An injury to Valerie Letourneau has opened the door for Larissa Moreira Pacheco to step in, as she will face Jessica Andrade at the September 13 UFC Fight Night 51 card from Brazil. That event boasts Antonio Silva and Andrei Arlovski in the headline fight.

Carrizosa (6-0) has scored wins in Bellator MMA and Tachi Palace Fights, while Wade (7-1) is a veteran of Ring of Combat. Since his first career loss – in the World Series of Fighting – Wade has won two sstraight.

Pacheco (10-0) is the reigning Jungle Fight champion and just 19 years old. Andrade (11-3) has won two of three since signing with the UFC. The fight change was first reported by Combate.
