Anne-Marie Sorvin-US PRESSWIRE

The UFC is entering a new Canadian province, as they head to Winnipeg, Manitoba on June 15th for UFC 161. Renan Barao defends his interim bantamweight title against Eddie Wineland, who was the WEC's first ever 135 lbs champion. Overall this card is pretty strong, with Dan Henderson fighting Rashad Evans while Shogun Rua rematches Antonio Rogerio Nogueira 8 years removed from their classic encounter in PRIDE (Shogun won by decision).

Also on the main card is Jake Shields' return to welterweight against Tyron Woodley, while Pat Barry fights Shawn Jordan in a potential heavyweight slugfest.

Here's what the current fight card looks like:
