On Friday, April 15, the UFC will host the weigh-ins for UFC on Fox 19: Teixeira vs. Evans which takes place Saturday, April 16, from the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla.

In the night’s main event, former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans will tangle with former title challenger Glover Teixeira. The 36-year-old Evans returned to action for the first time in two years at UFC 192, but fell on the scorecards to Ryan Bader. The Brazilian Teixeira, meanwhile, has returned to the form that earned him a shot at UFC gold, stopping Ovince Saint Preux and Patrick Cummins in his last two outings.

The co-main event was expected to feature a light heavyweight rematch between MMA legend Dan Henderson and former UFC champion Lyoto Machida. The pair met previously at UFC 157 in 2013, with the Brazilian Machida eking out a split decision win. However, Machida revealed in his pre-fight drug test that he had taken a banned substance and the bout was subsequently removed from the card.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday with four preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 4 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary card bouts air live on Fox at 6 p.m. ET, with the four-fight main card taking place at 8 p.m. ET, also on Fox.

The fighters will hit the scales at 4:30 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
