UFC 177 is slated to take place on Saturday August 30th at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. With the biggest rematch of the year only a few days away, EA SPORTS UFC simulated the Bantamweight bout between TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barao.
After five grueling rounds, it looks like a rubber match will eventually be needed between these two as Barao edged out Dillashaw to retake the Bantamweight strap with a split-decision victory. Unleashing two of the highest rated fighters in EA SPORTS UFC on each other for multiple bouts didn't disappoint. As you may have guessed the results were some of the closest we've seen. The constants throughout all simulated fights were Barao landing slightly more significant strikes than his opponent, while Dillashaw maintained the edge in wrestling, scoring more takedowns. The rare finishes were split equally down the middle, with the overwhelming majority of bouts ending in decisions where the Brazilian's arm got raised a fraction more than Dillashaw's to give him the win in our Sim.
