But Oluwale Bambgose (8-5-0) answered the call and will replace him.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
UFC on FOX 19 goes down April 16th from the Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida. The card has a few other changes as Rashad Evans takes on Glover Teixeira in a modified main event due to Tony Ferguson being scratched.
Ferguson’s opponent, Khabib Nurmagomedov will fight Darrell Horcher in the co-main event.
Bamgbose took the Uriah Hall fight on short notice as well, suffering the first loss of his career in TKO fashion, but bounced back to earn a TKO win over Daniel Sarafian at UFC Fight Night 83.
