Winnipeg could be host to a showdown between two of the most successful light heavyweights in recent history. If Dan Henderson gets cleared to compete by a doctor following his suspension after his fight with Lyoto Machida at UFC 157 he will face former champ Rashad Evans at UFC 161 on June 15th.
Both men need a win to get back into the mix at 205. Evans has lost two straight for the first time in his career with losses to current champ Jon Jones and Lil’ Nog. Hendo was promised a title shot if he won at UFC 157 but coming up on the wrong side of a split decision he will need a win over Evans he wants to be mentioned as a contender.
Noguiera is set face Shogun Rua on the card and Tyrone Woodley will take on Jake Shields at UFC 161.
