UFC On FOX 19: Fight Card For Saturday

ufc on fox 19

The lineup will not look the same as originally planned, but Saturday night’s UFC on FOX 19 still has plenty of drawing power.

Set for Tampa and the Amalie Arena, former champion Rashad Evans takes on one-time title contender Glover Teixeira in the main event, while Lyoto Machida and Dan Henderson square off for a second time.

The card was expected to feature Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson in a lightweight title-eliminator, but Ferguson was forced out. Newcomer Darrell Horcher will meet the unbeaten Nurmagomedov.

Rose Namajunas and Tecia Torres kickoff the FOX main card, which begins at 8 p.m. ET.

Other planned fights include Beneil Dariush-Michael Chiesa, Cub Swanson-Hacran Dias and Bethe Correia-Raquel Pennington.
