Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing mixed martial arts (MMA) fans free fisticuffs this Saturday night (April 16, 2016) by way of the UFC on FOX 19: “Teixeira vs. Evans event,” taking place inside Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida.
That’s where Glover Teixeira and Rashad Evans will battle for a spot in the crowded 205-pound title hunt, after a last-minute injury forced Tony Ferguson to withdraw from his Khabib Nurmagomedov headliner. “The Eagle” now competes elsewhere on the main card opposite newcomer Darrell Horcher at a catchweight of 160 pounds.
In the UFC on FOX 19 co-main event, strawweight contenders Tecia Torres and Rose Namajunas inch their way closer to the 125-pound strap after Lyoto Machida sabotaged his rematch against Dan Henderson by way of potential USADA violation.
In other words, we’re limping across the finish line.
