Reports have surfaced that the Ultimate Fighting Championship will be hosting an event in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on June 15 that will feature a main event between light-heavyweight stars Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson.
Tatame.com was the first to report that Evans and Henderson had a verbal agreement for their clash over the summer.
Evans is on a two-fight win streak after dropping consecutive bouts to light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and a controversial decision loss to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira this past February. Henderson was riding a four-fight win streak heading into his February 23 match at UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche before suffering a split-decision loss to Lyoto Machida, who is now next in line for the 205-pound title.
It is believed that the event could be UFC 161.
There is also a rumored bout between welterweight contenders Jake Shields and Tyron Woodley in the works for the card.
