Here are the results from UFC 161 Saturday night in Winnipeg, Manitoba, which saw former light-heavyweight champ Rashad Evans get by the legendary Dan Henderson with a split decision win in the main event. With the victory, Evans got back on track after dropping back-to-back losses to Jon Jones and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, while “Hendo” has now lost two straight. In February, the 42 year-old fighter also lost by split decision to Lyoto Machida.

In the co-main-event, Stipe Miocic demonstrated once again why he’s a heavyweight on the rise, as he outscored noted slugger and top contender Roy Nelson for the UD victory.
