It wasn’t a night filled with finishes or all-out wars but UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson still produced a number of memorable moments. From the bloody bout between Sam Stout-James Krause to Shawn Jordan’s 59-second knockout of Pat Barry to an entertaining effort featuring two of the organization’s newest female bantamweights to the main event between Hall of Famers Rashad Evans–Dan Henderson, the card is one that folks will be talking about for awhile…or at least a few weeks until UFC 162 rolls around.
Though many fans watched the show on a flat screen, or even from a seat in the arena, few if any had a chance to sit ringside to get a close-up perspective of the pairings. Thanks to the fine folks at USA Today Sports, readers can take a look back as the festivities from just that locale with a series of shots pulled from their catalog of images.
