Pic: Updated UFC 161 full poster for ‘Evans vs. Henderson' on June 15 in Winnipeg

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

In just a few short weeks, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will make its second venture north of the border in 2013, and to a new city at that, with a card carried by some of the world's top light heavyweight talent.

Renan Barao was supposed to defend his interim bantamweight title against Eddie Wineland at the event, but unfortunately the Brazilian suffered a foot injury and was forced to withdraw from the card.

With that said, UFC 161 is still a loaded fight card, so when and where does it all go down?

The pay-per-view (PPV) fight card is set to go down from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on June 15, 2013.

In the new main event, former UFC 205-pound 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.

The night's co-main event will see two more of the world's top 205-pound fighters go to war, 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.

Also added to the card at the last minute was a heavyweight contest between The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 10 winner Roy Nelson and Stipe Miocic.

Good stuff.
