On Saturday, April 16, the UFC hosted UFC on Fox 19: Teixeira vs. Evans from the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla.
In the night’s main event, former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans tangled 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, had 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 11-fight event kicked off Saturday with three preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 4:30 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary card bouts aired live on Fox at 6 p.m. ET, with the four-fight main card taking place at 8 p.m. ET, also on Fox.
