UFC 161 Weigh in Results: Evans vs. Henderson Fight Card
This weekend, the UFC will make its way to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for the first time when UFC 161 takes place at the MTS Centre, home of the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets.
The fight card will feature a main event between Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson. Evans and Henderson moved up to headlining status when the original main event, interim UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao versus Eddie Wineland, was scrapped after a Barao injury. With that in mind, the main event will be scheduled for three rounds.

Time for the light heavyweight main event between Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson.
Henderson comes to the stage first and hears a nice cheer from the crowd. His weight is 204. Evans gets the "Evans, Evans, Evans" chant from the crowd, so I'm guessing they are on Hendo's side in Winnipeg. Evans weighs in at 206.
