UFC Poster 161 Evans Hendrson Shogun Nogueira

Hey, do you remember when UFC 161‘s official event poster looked like THIS? Well, now that interim bantamweight champ Renan Barao was forced to withdraw from the night’s showcase scrap against Eddie Wineland, of course the June 15 card needed a new billboard. 

As depicted above, a light heavyweight affair between Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson now headlines the festivities. Given their last-minute promotion, the 205-pounds will meet in a three round affair as opposed to five frames.

Former champ Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira serve as the co-main event.

MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Canada serves as host.
