Renan Barao

Interim UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao is no longer on the card for UFC 161. Barao apparently has a foot injury and withdrew from his title defense against former World Extreme Cagefighting champ Eddie Wineland.  

The UFC informed Crave's Sherdog website Friday the light heavyweight match between Dan Henderson and Rashad Evans will now headline UFC 161, June 15 at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg.

A former 205-pound titlist, Evans, 33, has lost back-to-back fights for the first time in his career, falling to reigning champion Jon Jones last year before dropping a unanimous decision to Nogueira in a lackluster Feb. 2 showdown at UFC 156.
