With Machida vs Henderson off, Swanson vs. Dias now features on main card at UFC on FOX 19

With Lyoto Machida admitting to taking an illegal substance whilst being drug tested by USADA, the UFC had no choice but to remove the Machida vs. Dan Henderson fight from the card at UFC in Tampa this weekend.

With this fight being removed, this left a gap to fill on the main card. The UFC has bumped a featherweight contest between Cub Swanson and Hacran Dias from the preliminary card which also airs on FOX to the main card.

A lightweight bout between Drew Dober and Islam Makhachev has been moved from the UFC Fight Pass preliminary card to the FOX preliminary card in its place.

UFC on Fox 19 will be held on April 16, 2016 at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.

Check out the updated lineup below:

Main Card (Fox)
Glover Teixeira vs. Rashad Evans
