UFC On FOX 19 Lineup Receives New Main Card Opener


While officials continue to work to find a replacement that will face Khabib Nurmagomedov next week, they have went ahead and set a new UFC on FOX 19 main card opening bout.

Featherweights Cub Swanson and Hacran Dias will begin the FOX main card from the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. The change also moved Drew Dober-Islam Makhachev to the early FOX prelims from UFC Fight Pass.

Nurmagomedov was set to headline the event vs. Tony Ferguson, but an injury knocked Ferguson from the bout. Rumors of Donald Cerrone stepping in have surfaced, but nothing has been announced yet.

The main card will also include Rashad Evans-Glover Teixeira, Dan Henderson-Lyoto Machida and Rose Namajunas-Tecia Torres.
