UFC on FOX 19 was supposed to feature Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event, but a Ferguson injury nixed that as of last week. As a result, the co-main event of Rashad Evans vs. Glover Teixeira has been promoted to five-round main event status, while Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida 2 is the new co-main. The good news for Khabib fans is that he will remain on the card and fight newcomer Darrell Horcher at a 160 lbs catchweight. Women's strawweight contenders Rose Namajunas and Tecia Torres will open the FOX main card, as Namajunas seeks to avenge a prior loss to Torres in Invicta FC.

A couple of late notes to pass along: John Dodson vs. Manny Gamburyan is the new Fight Pass headliner, while Bethe Correia vs. Raquel Pennington is bumped to the FOX prelims. Also, Caio Magalhaes is injured and Oluwale Bamgbose is replacing him against Cezar Ferreira.
