Pic: UFC 161 full poster for ‘Barao vs. Wineland' on June 15 in Winnipeg

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has released its full poster for UFC 161 featuring Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland, Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Mauricio Rua. It all goes down on June 15, 2013 from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

The countdown has begun...

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will make its second venture north of the border in 2013, and to a new city at that, as interim Bantamweight championship Renan Barao returns to the Octagon to put his title on the line for the second time against the original World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) king, Eddie Wineland.

When and where?

In the UFC 161: "Barao vs. Wineland" main event, which tops off a stacked pay-per-view (PPV) fight card from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on June 15, 2013.

That's less than two months away!

In the co-main event, former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Rashad Evans looks to rebound from his career-worst two-fight losing streak when he takes on former two-division Pride champion Dan Henderson in a high-stakes 205-pound affair.

Also in action will be a two more of the world's top 205-pound fighters, as Antonio Rogerio Nogueira looks to build momentum from his UFC 156 upset over Evans when he takes on former UFC champion Mauricio Rua in a rematch of the 2005 "Fight of the Year," which "Shogun" won by decision.

Good stuff.
