Dan Henderson-Rashad Evans confirmed for UFC 161 but not as main event

Rashad Evans - UFC 145The UFC is in the process of putting together a star-studded lineup for a summer stop in Winnipeg, Manitoba and recently confirmed a number of clashes attached to the event including a recently rumored rumble between light heavyweights Dan Henderson and Rashad Evans. However, as it turns out, the bout between Henderson-Evans won’t serve as the evening’s top tilt.

No word was given on what sort of scrap will headline the affair other than to say an announcement was in the works. Of course, if Henderson-Evans doesn’t cut the mustard as a main event it stands to reason a title-fight will likely fill the slot.

Also made official for the June 15 lineup were fights featuring Soa Palelei-Stipe Miocic and Mauricio Rua-Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
