Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will make a quick turnaround when he defends his title in the co-main event of UFC 177 against Chris Cariaso at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, Calif. A rematch for the bantamweight title between T.J. Dillashaw and former champion Renan Barao headlines that card.

Johnson won his sixth bout in a row on June 14 when he decisioned Ali Bagautinov over five rounds in the main event of UFC 174 in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was Johnson’s fifth consecutive win in a title fight and it was his fourth title defense.

Given that UFC 176 was canceled, Johnson will appear in two of the last three pay-per-view shows when he steps into the cage on Aug. 30.
