Dillashaw was left opponent-less after former bantamweight champion Renan Barao fainted just before weigh-ins. Soto fought in the main event after being originally slated for the first fight of the night. The 27-year-old lost, in wh read news >>

And I guess Ronda Rousey vs. Bryan Caraway is as good a place to start as any, according to Rogan's comments on his official podcast read news >>
