UFC 161 Preview: Henderson vs. Evans

“Boom, boom, boom, boom. Bang, bang, bang, bang.”  This is the tagline for the upcoming UFC 161 and it couldn’t be more fitting.  Despite some last minute shuffling of the card due to injuries, the event has shaped up to be a very interesting one between some of the sport’s heaviest hitters.  In the main event of the evening, two former world champions, Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson, will look to prove they are still relevant in the light heavyweight division. 

In an equally interesting light heavyweight match up, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will take on the surging Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.  While Shogun will be looking to rebound from a tough loss, Nogueira is looking to make it three in a row inside the Octagon.  Rounding out the card is the heavyweight clash between Roy Nelson and Stipe Miocic.  Both of these guys hit hard and always come to fight.

Check out the first preview for UFC 161 below.  This is going to be an exciting one.
