UFC 161 preview: Kenny Florian and Jon Anik look ahead to the pay-per-view

UFC on Fuel announcers Kenny Florian and Jon Anik look ahead to the upcoming UFC 161 Evans vs. Henderson pay-per-view main event.

Former Pride and Strikeforce champ Dan Henderson has accomplished virtually everything a man can do in MMA except win a UFC championship. Standing between him and a shot at UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones is ex-champ Rashad Evans.

The two meet in the headliner of UFC 161 on June 15, 2013 at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

UFC on Fuel TV announcers Kenny Florian and Jon Anik break down the fight in the video above.

The card was originally to be headlined by an interim Bantamweight title bout between Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland. That bout was kiboshed by an injury to the interim champ Barao. Wineland then declined to fight ex-WEC champ Urijah Faber.

The card was to have been co-mained by a rematch between Pride rivals Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. That bout was scrapped when Nogueira pulled out with an injury. Late substitute Chael Sonnen couldn't get a visa to fight in Canada as a convicted felon so Shogun vs. Sonnen has been scheduled for UFC on FS1 1 in August.
