Pic: UFC 161 poster first look for 'Barao vs Wineland' on June 15 in Winnipeg

See the teaser poster for the upcoming UFC 161 pay-per-view (PPV) event on June 15, 2013, which features a 135-pound title fight between interim champion Renan Barao and No. 1 contender Eddie Wineland.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) today unveiled its first look at the upcoming poster for its "Barao vs. Wineland"-led pay-per-view (PPV) event, which is set to take place at MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on June 15, 2013.

UFC 161 will feature Bantamweight champion Renan Barao, putting his 135-pound interim title on the line against No. 1 division contender Eddie Wineland in the main event of the evening. Two pivotal Light Heavyweight bouts -- Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Mauricio Rua (a rematch of their Pride FC classic from 2005) and Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans -- are also currently slated to compete on PPV main card.

Also scheduled for the promotion's first-ever fight card in "The Peg" is a Heavyweight showdown between Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan, as well as a 135-pound female bout between Alexis Davis vs. Rosi Sexton, which will no doubt get the winner closer to a title shot after Meisha Tate or Cat Zingano collides with division champion Ronda Rousey later this year.
