On Saturday, April 18, the UFC hosted UFC on FOX 15: Rockhold vs. Machida from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

In the night’s main event, former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold squared off with former lightweight heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida. Both men entered this contest coming off impressive stoppage victories with Rockhold submitting Michael Bisping in November and Machida finishing C.B. Dollaway by TKO in December.

The night’s co-main event also featured a middleweight contest as Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza, also a former Strikeforce champion, squared off against Chris Camozzi for the second time in his career. Jacare was originally scheduled to face off against Yoel Romero before an injury forced his opponent out of the contest. As a result, Camozzi was named Romero’s replacement on just six days notice. Jacare previoulsy defeated Camozzi by submission in May 2013.

Rounding out the main card was a featherweight contest between Max Hollaway and Cub Swanson and a women’s straweight battle featuring TUF 20 alum Felice Herrig and the popular Paige VanZant.

The 11-fight card kicked off Saturday at 4:15 p.m. ET with two fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four prelim bouts followed on FOX at 6 p.m. ET followed immediately by the four fight main card at 8 p.m. ET.
