Evans takes split decision win over Henderson

The main event of UFC 161: "Evans vs. Henderson" tonight (Sat., June 15, 2013) at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, featured Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson squaring off in a battle to remain relevant in the light heavyweight division. Both have had prior chances at the gold in their respective weight class and a loss here would likely mean never challenging for said championship ever again.

Evans decided to stay aggressive in the third, pushing in with left and right hands and landing some relatively big punches that had the iron-chinned "Hendo" backing up. If nothing else, the sheer volume of strikes was effective in giving Rashad the edge.

Henderson's lack of energy became a real hindrance here. Evans was landing the more meaningful offense on top of implementing his game plan and even effectively controlling the Octagon.

You know that old outdated method of scoring or whatever.

Evans spent much of the remainder of the round simply controlling the action by pushing "Hendo" up against the cage and dirty boxing with him, getting the better of the exchanges there. His younger body held up much better, and had this been a five-round battle, it likely would have been even more emphatic.

Henderson swung hard with that big right hand just before the bell but it missed and that seemed to signal the end for him.

The judges ultimately scored it for Evans via split decision.

Evans evens things up with Henderson through two

The main event of UFC 161: "Evans vs. Henderson" tonight (Sat., June 15, 2013) at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, featured Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson squaring off in a battle to remain relevant in the light heavyweight division. Both have had prior chances at the gold in their respective weight class and a loss here would likely mean never challenging for said championship ever again.

The second round opened with Evans landing a takedown finally, but Henderson getting back to his feet rather quickly. That simply led to a clinch and some grappling to change the pace.

Rashad exploded out and scored points on some solid punches that did some damage not long after, with "Hendo" even getting a bit wobbly at one point. He stayed aggressive, too, using his speed and some fancy footwork to get inside and work his offensive before bouncing back out and maintaining a safe distance.

You know, because that power right hand is always looming large.

They stayed relatively even as the round moved along but it started to look more and more like Henderson was wearing out and Evans was staying fresh.

Henderson draws first blood on Evans in round one

The main event of UFC 161: "Evans vs. Henderson" tonight (Sat., June 15, 2013) at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, featured Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson squaring off in a battle to remain relevant in the light heavyweight division. Both have had prior chances at the gold in their respective weight class and a loss here would likely mean never challenging for said championship ever again.

Round one opened with Rashad taking the center of the cage but staying at distance. The first exchange took place with Evans jumping inside and looking for uppercuts. They broke clean and came out to reset in the middle.

"Suga" attempted to use a combination to duck under for a takedown but they were too close to the fence and he was forced to back out. "Hendo" tried to use the moment to load up that big right hand and fire but Evans was watching for it and defended well.

One hand out and circling away.

Henderson continued looking for an opening to land his trademark punch while Rashad made sure to stay as far away from it as possible. The shot that ended up hurting Evans was a stiff jab, though, and Henderson earned a knockdown on a follow up right hand, though it wasn't the "H-Bomb" we've come to know and love.

The round closed with both fighters staying back.
