With the loss of UFC 161's planned headliner between Renan Barao (30-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and Eddie Wineland (20-8-1 MMA, 2-2 UFC), Ultimate Fighting Championship officials looked to add some firepower to the event's lineup. Roy Nelson (19-7 MMA, 6-3 UFC) and Stipe Miocic (9-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) answered the call.

USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with UFC President Dana White that Nelson and Miocic have agreed to meet on the main card of the event, which takes place June 15 at MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Rashad Evans (17-3-1 MMA, 12-3-1 UFC) vs. Dan Henderson (29-9 MMA, 6-3 UFC) now headlines the card.

Really?!

I know nobody wants to fight Roy on short notice, but it's a chance to save a PPV. They couldn't grab a more even match up?

I was kind of hoping for Wineland to stay in vs Michael McDonald but this is okay too. Much harder fight for Stipe, I figured Miocic would beat Palelei pretty bad but I don't like his chances vs Nelson

Junkie says possible 6 fight main card if wineland stays on

Or Barao vs wineland Ufc 164 my guess maybe

Glad Ufc gave nelson a fight since he was training for Jds in case hunt was a no go

Although, I'm a little nervous for Stipe. He seemed to have been rocked by DeFries before he messed him up and Roy hits a lot harder than Fries.

Miocic couldn't live with the power of Struve, he has no chance against big country in this one. Roy is just way better every where,
