As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) previously reported, UFC interim champ Renan Barao is injured and out of next month's UFC 161 event. With little time to find a suitable replacement, the night's co-feature between Rashad Evans (17-3-1 MMA, 12-3-1 UFC) and Dan Henderson (29-9 MMA, 6-3 UFC) has been promoted to headlining status.

UFC officials today made the change. Evans vs. Henderson remains a three-round bout.

As a Hendo fan, not sure how I feel about it. Rashad is most likely going to do what Jake Shields did or try to.

Rashad is training out of the blackzillians who currently are without a wrestling coach...

If there was ever a better time for a fighter like Dan Henderson to fight Rashad Evans it would be now. I never would have thought I'd be picking Hendo to KO Rashad as I always believed Rashad would take him down at ease... But since Rashad moved to the blackzillians he's forgotten how to wrestle.

He didn't shoot against Jones till the late rounds, didn't even try to takedown Lil Nog.

This is gonna be a huge win for Hendo

Ahh okay - I hadn't seen any news since Mike Van Arsdale left....

So the coaches are Henri Hooft, Pedro Diaz and Monday?

Still a pretty good card.
I do think wineland vs faber should be co main now
Either that or shields vs Woodley is on ppv now
And they just go with 12 fights.

Not the greatest card on paper, but not every card can. back to back great ppv cards are tough to find.
