Rose Namajunas vs Tecia Torres new co-headliner

With the removal of the UFC on FOX co-headlining rematch between Lyoto Machida and Dan Henderson announced yesterday, the women’s strawweight bout between Ultimate Fighter season 20 alum, Rose Namajunas vs Tecia Torres has been moved up to fill the void.

Rose Namajunas vs Tecia Torres

Last night it was announced that Machida had come forth and declared the usage of a banned substance during an out-of-competition sample collection last week.

Also, Cub Swanson vs Hacran Dias has moved up onto the main card on FOX due to the removal of the Machida-Henderson scrap.  Two weeks ago the main event for the card took a hit as Tony Ferguson was forced off the card due to injury.  Khabib Nurmagomedov who was to headline against Ferguson remains on the card with a new opponent in Darrell Horcher but was moved down the lineup.
