UFC 173's Main Card Still Has Stars Like Renan Barao and Daniel Cormier
TIM LARSEN/Associated Press
Renan Barao will defend his UFC bantamweight title against TJ Dillashaw at UFC 173 later this month.

UFC 173 isn't quite what it was suppose to be. 

Originally, the Memorial Day weekend event was expected to feature Chris Weidman defending his UFC middleweight title against Vitor Belfort. Than it was Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida for the belt, with a co-main event between Junior dos Santos and Stipe Miocic.

None of those fighters are linked to the card now, but there is still reason to tune in.

Renan Barao, who sports an incredible win streak, will defend his bantamweight title against T.J. Dillashaw from Team Alpha Male. Light heavyweight contenders Dan Henderson and Daniel Cormier will square off in a bout featuring two former U.S. Olympic wrestlers, while welterweight standouts Jake Ellenberger and Robbie Lawler meet in another key bout.

Here's an early look at the fights set for the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 24.
