UFC Poster 161 Barao Wineland

The official event poster for “UFC 161: Barao vs. Wineland” has hit the Internet. Do you want to know what the best part about June 15’s billboard is?

If you were to quickly glance at Rashad Evans’ image, it kinda looks like he’s sporting the Kid fade from Kid ‘n Play because of how he’s positioned against Eddie Wineland’s shorts.

(I know. Grow up, Tom.)

Regarding a more important matter, it’s interesting how the headline of the ad says “World Bantamweight Championship” and not “Interim Bantamweight Championship” like it did for Renan Barao’s first interim title defense.

I wonder what injured bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz thinks about the change. Did Cruz and UFC president Dana White have their chat? Was “The Dominator” stripped? Am I just being extra suspicious this April Fools’ morning?

MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Canada hosts the festivities.

Here is the show’s current lineup:

Roland Delorme vs. Edwin Figueroa

John Maguire vs. Mitch Clarke

Ryan Jimmo vs. Igor Pokrajac

TJ Waldburger vs. Sean Pierson

Sam Stout vs. Isaac Vallie-Flagg

Soa Palelei vs. Stipe Miocic

Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan

Jake Shields vs. Tyron Woodley

Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira

Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans

Eddie Wineland vs. Renan Barao (UFC bantamweight champion)
