Today’s UFC on FOX 19 weigh-ins take place at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida. Tomorrow night the fights take place at Amalie Arena in Tampa.
In the main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans takes on Glover Teixeira. The co-main event features a pair of strawweight contenders in the female division as Rose Namajunas rematches Tecia Torres.
Two days ago Lyota Machida vs Dan Henderson was removed from the card after Machida admitted to using a banned substance.
The original main event for the card in Tampa was to be a five round war between top UFC lightweights Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson. When Ferguson became unable to compete due to injury, UFC newcomer Darrell Horcher stepped up and the bout was switched to three rounds and moved down the lineup.
