The official weigh in event for UFC 161: "Evans vs. Henderson" took place today (Fri., June 14, 2013) at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
All fighters made weight without incident.
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.
