UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson Conference Call

Here's the full audio of today's UFC 161 conference call.

UFC 161 is coming up fast, and today the headlining fighters gathered round the imaginary board room for a media conference call. Initially headlined by Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland, and then by Mauricio Rua and Antonio Nogueira, the card has taken a bit of a hit. Hear what Rashad Evans, Dan Henderson, Roy Nelson, and Stipe Miocic had to say about the changing of the card and their fights.

Here's Rashad on getting a chance to headline the event:

It was a pleasant surprise for the UFC to have faith in me to close out the show.

And here's what Roy Nelson had to say about getting moved onto the card to fight Stipe Miocic:

I think I got offered Daniel Cormier and he turned it down and they went down the list, Travis Browne et cetera. Stipe was on the card already and he was the only one that stepped up.

There's plenty more though on tape though, so check it out.
