UFC Poster 161 Evans Hendrson Shogun Nogueira

UFC 161 will have to produce yet another event poster. On Sunday, GloboEsporte.com announced Antonio Rogerio Nogueira has been forced out of his June 15 rematch against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua with a herniated disc.

The UFC is currently scouring its roster for a suitable substitute to meet Shogun in the show’s co-featured attraction.

Just three weeks ago, interim bantamweight champ Renan Barao was forced out of the main event against Eddie Wineland, which bumped Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson into the card’s top spot.

MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Canada hosts the festivities.

Here is the night’s revised lineup:

Preliminary Card:

(Facebook 6:35PM ET/3:35PM PT)

Dustin Pague vs. Yves Jabouin

John Maguire vs. Mitch Clarke

Roland Delorme vs. Edwin Figueroa


Kenny Robertson vs. Sean Pierson

Ryan Jimmo vs. Igor Pokrajac

Sam Stout vs. James Krause

Jake Shields vs. Tyron Woodley

Main Card:

(Pay-Per-View 10PM ET/7PM PT)

Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan
