UFC 161: Who's on the Hot Seat Heading into the Evans vs. Henderson Fight Card
Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The UFC will head to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for the first time on Saturday, presenting UFC 161 from the MTS Centre, home to the NHL's Winnipeg Jets.

An injury forced the promotion to scrap the original main event between interim UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland. Now, the headlining bout will see former UFC champion Rashad Evans meet former Strikeforce/PRIDE champion Dan Henderson in a three-round light heavyweight contest.

A total of 22 fighters will compete on the card. Some will be fighting for their jobs, some will be fighting to move up in their division's rankings and at least one will be fighting to get some leverage when he negotiates a new contract. 

Who are these fighters and who are the other fighters under the most pressure heading into Saturday's pay-per-view?
