Baszler will remain on a UFC PPV, fighting at UFC 177. The event will mark her first main card fight in the UFC. She previously was scheduled for a fight at The Ultimate Fighter Nations finale, but had to pull out of the fight due to injury.
UFC 176 is the second show the UFC has had to cancel under the current management. In 2012, UFC 151 featuring Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson was canceled following an injury to Henderson.
