UFC 161 SQOk so tonight’s UFC 161 doesn’t have the interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao or the light heavyweight rematch between Shogun Rua and Antônio Rogério Nogueira. What tonight’s UFC 161 does have though are two former light heavyweight champions in the main event and a heavyweight bout that should bring fireworks.

UFC 161 was hit with that darn injury bug and the card was weakened but the show must go on. The fans in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada will get their first taste of live UFC action tonight and while it’s not the level of card originally plan, UFC 161 is not slouch either.

Follow all the night’s action right here with live results and post fight analysis.

PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook, 4pm PT / 7pm ET)

Yves Jabouin defeated Dustin Pague by Split Decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)

  • Pague tried like a hundred submission attempts on Jabouin but couldn’t lock one up. Jabouin also had his moments but spent more time defending the submission than doing damage while in top position. The judges apparently favored the being on top over the multiple submission attempts and gave the fight to Jabouin.

Mitch Clarke defeated John Maguire by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

  • In front of his hometown, Mitch Clarke earned his first career UFC win by out working his opponent.


Roland Delorme defeated Edwin Figueroa by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

  • Delorme was able to take Figueroa down whenever he wanted, yet Figueroa nearly won this fight. Figueroa hurt Delorme on the feet and with ground and pound but it was the takedowns and submission attempts that earned Delorme the win. The fights into UFC 161 and all decisions……

Sean Pierson defeated Kenny Robertson by Majority Decision (29-28, 29-28, 28-28)

  • A fight that was all Pierson for most of the first two round but Robertson really hurt Pierson and almost ended the fight. Robertson maybe made the mistake of taking the fight to the ground when he had Pierson hurt which allowed his opponent to recover.

James Krause defeated Sam Stout by 3rd round Submission (Guillotine)

  • Using his reach advantage to it’s fullest Krause punished UFC veteran from the outside. With less than a minute in the fight Stout took Krause down, right into a guillotine choke that forced a tap with just 13 seconds left in the fight. A great UFC debut from Krause and the first finish of UFC 161.

Jake Shields defeated Tyron Woodley by Split Decision (27-30, 29-28, 29-28)

  • Not the best fight to lead into the PPV…….

MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 7pm PT / 10pm ET)

Shawn Jordan defeated Pat Barry by 1st rd TKO

  • Back to back uppercuts stunned Barry, a flurry later and the fight was over.

Alexis Davis defeated Rosi Sexton by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-27, 29-28)

  • She might have lost but Rosi Sexton is one tough female. Davis went for several submissions that other fighters would have tapped too, not Sexton though. Once again though the ladies bring it!

Ryan Jimmo defeated Igor Pokrajac by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

  • I’d like to say something positive here but this one gave the Shields v Woodley fight a serious run for its money.

Stipe Miocic defeated Roy Nelson by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

  • Was it the short notice, was it taking his opponent lightly or was it Miocic? My guess is somewhere in the middle. Nelson came out as if he had a hot date or maybe he knew the gas tank was already on empty, either way he was gassed just minutes into the fight and looked like crap.

Rashad Evans defeated Dan Henderson by Split Decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28)

  • The UFC 161 fight card comes to an end with another decision, nine in total. Henderson hurt Evans in the first round and couldn’t repeat that in the later rounds. Niether fighter made a big impression on the light heavyweight division with their performance and Evans shouldn’t be getting a title shot anytime soon.
