Joe Soto’s name doesn’t ring up there with the likes of his UFC 177 opponent, T.J. Dillashaw, or the man he replaced, Renan Barao.
But, Soto carries with him an impressive resume.
Signed just a few weeks ago by the UFC to face Anthony Birchak, Soto is a former Bellator featherweight champion and two-time NJCAA All-American wrestler at Iowa Central.
Now, he’ll step inside the Octagon tonight and meet Dillashaw for the UFC bantamweight title. Check out some of Soto’s career highlights in the videos below. FightLine will be providing complete coverage of Dillashaw-Soto, along with the rest of the card.
