UFC 161 Preview: Rashad Evans vs Dan Henderson Head to Toe Breakdown
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Dan Henderson had earned one final shot at a UFC championship and was scheduled to meet light heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones at UFC 151, but he missed out on that opportunity due to injury and a loss to Lyoto Machida upon his return. Now, the 42-year-old Henderson is looking to scramble against time and regain his position as top 205-pound contender before retirement calls.

Similarly, Rashad Evans had his sights set on earning a rematch with Jones until suffering an unexpected loss to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Despite turning in the worst showing of his career against the Brazilian, Evans finds himself in a bout with Henderson that could allow him to return to title contention.

This is an extremely pivotal matchup for both Henderson and Evans. The winner could have an opportunity to end their career with a bang, while the loser could be on the fast track toward calling it quits.

As this UFC 161 main event approaches, let's take a look at which fighter is more likely to get their hand raised.
