The stage is set for UFC on FOX 19, as the April event will feature three former champions, a title eliminator and much more.

Set for April 16 from the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson square off in the main event. The bout will serve as a likely No. 1 contender match in the lightweight division.

Joining the FOX main card will be Rashad Evans vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Lyoto Machida vs. Dan Henderson and Rose Namajunas vs. Tecia Torres. All of these bouts were confirmed recently by the UFC.

Evans and Rua were once scheduled to meet for the light heavyweight title, but an injury to Evans allowed Jon Jones to fight and defeat Rua instead. Machida previously won a decision vs. Henderson.
