Nurmagomedov Faces Newcomer Horcher in Tampa

It was announced Tuesday that the UFC on FOX main event between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov was off due to a Ferguson injury, and two days later, "The Eagle" has a new dance partner, as he will take on Octagon newcomer Darrell "The Saint" Horcher in a main card bout at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.

The fight will take place at a catchweight of 160 pounds.

In the UFC on FOX main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans faces top five contender Glover Teixeira.

The 22-0 Nurmagomedov is returning after an injury-induced layoff that has kept him on the sidelines since an April 2014 win over current lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. In Pennsylvania's Horcher, he will face a 12-1 up and comer who has won five straight, with his last two wins coming by knockout.
