UFC 161 Adds Slew Of Fights To Growing Card

UFC 161 is quickly filling up, thought the event does not take place until June.

Officials were busy making fights official on Wednesday, confirming the main event and co-main event for the Winnipeg card.

Renan Barao will defend his interim UFC bantamweight title against Eddie Wineland, while Dan Henderson battles Rashad Evans.

Two more previously announced fights were confirmed, as Jake Shields battles Tyron Woodley and Pat Barry squares off with Shawn Jordan. Those two fights are added to another 205-pound tilt between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and a heavyweight contest featuring Stipe Miocic and Soa Palelei.

This will be the first time the UFC hosts a card in the province of Manitoba.
