Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans new UFC 161 main-event for Winnipeg, Manitoba



The UFC debut in Winnipeg, Manitoba has a new main-event scheduled for June 15, 2013 at the MTS Centre as former champs Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson go to war at UFC 161.

This 205-pound clash will replace the interim title defense of the injured Renan Barao and contender Eddie Wineland.

UFC Canada Tweeted: Former champs Evans and Hendo new Main Event RT @ufc Barao is out of #UFC161 with an injury. Main event for 161 is now Evans vs Henderson.

Henderson is coming off of a split-decision loss to Lyoto Machida back at UFC 157 earlier this year in Anaheim, California.

Evans is also coming off a loss to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira from their clash back at UFC 156.   It will be interesting to see which fighter will move closer to a title shot following June 15.
