UFC president Dana White appeared on Friday’s special edition of “UFC Tonight” to announce two upcoming fight plans.

First, T.J. Dillashaw’s first UFC bantamweight championship defense will come against the man he won the belt from, Renan Barao, at UFC 177. Dillashaw-Barao will go down August 30 from the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.

Earlier this year, Dillashaw became the first man to defeat Barao since the Brazilian made his MMA debut several years ago. He also became the first Team Alpha Male fighter to score UFC gold in the process.

Secondly, White confirmed previous reports that the rematch between UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson will go down from Las Vegas on September 27 at UFC 178. No venue was announced for the fight. The bout was originally linked to Toronto.

Jones defeated Gustafsson via decision last year.
