UFC Rashad Evans

It’s just another manic Monday in your cubicle, so why not put on your headphones and take a break by watching “UFC Road to the Octagon: Teixeira vs. Evans”? Just be ready to minimize your window as soon as someone walks by.

The documentary follows former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans (pictured) and Glover Teixeira as they prepare for Saturday’s critical shootout. Evans was initially slated to face Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in the event, but Rua was ultimately reassigned to Corey Anderson at UFC 198.

That’s not the only change in the lineup. The highly anticipated lightweight tango between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov was originally slotted for top billing until Ferguson withdrew with fluid in his lungs. Nurmagomedov now welcomes Darrell Horcher to the big leagues on the main card.

Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida meet in the night’s co-featured attraction. They are also featured in the Road to the Octagon show.

Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida hosts Saturday’s fights. FOX broadcasts the main card live starting at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
