Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held its weigh-in extravaganza earlier today (June 14, 2013) from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, in advance of tomorrow night's UFC 161: "Evans vs. Henderson" mixed martial arts (MMA) event that will air live on pay-per-view.
UFC 161 will feature a re-worked Light Heavyweight main event between Dan Henderson and Rashad Evans after the top two matches were scratched because of injuries to Renan Barao and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, respectively.
Also scheduled for the promotion's first-ever fight card in "The Peg" is a Heavyweight showdown between Roy Nelson and Stipe Miocic, 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 Miesha Tate collides with division champion Ronda Rousey later this year.
Remember: MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 161 fight card on fight night (June 15, 2013), starting with the Facebook "Prelims," which are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET, right on through the FX-televised under card bouts at 8 p.m. ET and then main card PPV action, which is slated to begin at 10 p.m. ET.
See you then!
