Notes on UFC 161 in Winnipeg (updated)



Dana White told USA Today last night that the top two matches for UFC 161 in Winnipeg at the MTS Centre will be Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Shogun Rua.

However, at the press conference earlier today, only Nogueira vs. Rua were announced by UFC Canada President Tom Wright.  Right now Henderson is not cleared for the date, but that is the hoped for main event if he's healthy.

If not, a different main event will be added, likely one that was originally earmarked for a later PPV show.

Tickets will go on sale to Fight Club members on 4/10, and to the public on 4/12.
