New UFC 161 Main Event Will Be Rashad Evans vs Dan Henderson

With Renan Barao being forced off the card due to injury Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson will step up from the co main event to headline UFC 161.  This is a big blow to the card as though both these fighters have done great things in the sport both of their most recent performances were sub par, making it tough for them to main event a PPV card.  Not sure what else the UFC could have done though.  The promotion also confirmed that this will be a three round fight rather than a five.
