UFC Winnipeg: Rashad Evans vs. Dan Henderson on June 15

USA TODAY Sports

The UFC will be holding an event on June 15 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on June 15 and will feature Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans.

A couple of news items came out today that give us a clearer picture of the UFC's plans for early Summer. First Tatame.com reported that the UFC has secured verbal agreements from Dan Henderson and Rashad Evans to face each other on June 15.

Secondly, Joe Ferrarao, host of SportsNet's UFC Central program tweeted the following:

It seems a safe bet this will be UFC 161 following UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva II on May 25 in Las Vegas.

Jake Shields vs. Tyron Woodley is also rumored for this card.

Both men are coming off decision losses in lackluster fights. Henderson (29-9, 6-3 UFC) is coming off a loss at UFC 157 to Lyoto Machida. Evans (17-3-1, 12-3-1 UFC) lost to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 156.
