UFC 161: Barao vs. Wineland title fight set for Winnipeg

The UFC debut in Winnipeg now has a main-event title fight as Renan Barao will battle Eddie Wineland for the UFC bantamweight interim championship.

That’s according to Brett Okamoto of ESPN.

UFC 161 will take place at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba on June 15, 2013.

Barao is fresh off a 4th round submission victory over Michael McDonald at UFC on FUEL TV 7 in London.

Wineland who holds back to back wins in the 135-pound division will look to capitalize on this opportunity.

UFC 161 will likely feature bouts between Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Shogun Rya and Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans.  We will bring you the official news when announced.
