With UFC 177 set to take place on Saturday, Aug. 30, at Sleep Train Arena, EA Sports has simulated the Bantemweight championship rematch bout between current champion and Sacramento resident TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barao using its EA Sports UFC video game.

The simulated championship match lasted five rounds with Barao edging out Dillashaw to retake the Bantamweight strap with a split-decision victory.

Check out the official EA Sports video of the simulated match:

"The results were some of the closest we've seen," stated EA Sports via press release. "The constants throughout all simulated fights were Barao landing slightly more significant strikes than his opponent, while Dillashaw maintained the edge in wrestling, scoring more takedowns."

EA Sports UFC was released earlier this year and is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
