No Shogun Rua Means Ryan Jimmo-Igor Pokrajac Set For UFC 161 Main Card

Jake Shields and Tyron Woodley will remain in the FX main event for UFC 161, as light heavyweights Ryan Jimmo and Igor Pokrajac were selected to fill the main card void by UFC officials.

The card lost Mauricio “Shogun” Rua on Monday after an injury to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and visa issues for Chael Sonnen. Rua was expected to fight in the co-main event on June 15 from Winnipeg. It will mark the first time the UFC has hosted an event in the Canadian town.
