Additionally, former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans (17-3-1 MMA, 12-3-1 UFC) could face ex-PRIDE and Strikeforce titleholder Dan Henderson (29-9 MMA, 6-3 UFC), White said, adding Henderson was awaiting medical clearance.

Winnipeg becomes the fifth Canadian city to host a UFC show.

Evans looks to end a two-fight losing streak after dropping back-to-back decisions to current light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Nogueira.

He had flirted with the idea of a potential move down to middleweight in recent months but instead will likely face Henderson, who dropped a close split decision to Lyoto Machida last month at UFC 157.

The bout was the first in 15 months for Henderson, who missed out on a promised title shot with Jones while he recovered from a knee injury in 2012.

Which Shad will show? The one from the last few fights or the other one? In any case I'm a fan of both and that kind of sucks for me.

Don't like this fight, big fan of both and I think Rashad will play it safe and try to grind Hendo to a decision. Phone Post

yeah, i agree...


i really think Rashad would be awesome at MW, but maybe he's not able to make the weight.

Rashad has the skill set to be a Champion, but his lack of aggression over the last couple of years has been very disappointing to say the least.

Interdasting matchup.  I'm going with Hashad, but won't count out a ridiculous fight ending Hendo bomb.

good match up style wise, two wrestlers who tend to think they are strikers.

but bad match up as far as marketability goes. both guys are frequently in the top five LHWs talks, but now we'll end up with either a 0-3 rashad or a -0-2 hendo.

Blame. Thread ends.

Either Hendo KO's Rashad spectacularly or Rashad presses Dan against the fence and takes him down for 25 mins and does nothing...

Looking forward to it and perhaps a good H Bomb is exactly what is needed to wake Rashad up.

May mean an early retirement for whomever loses though.
