The injury bug is back for UFC 161 and this time the main event is in some serious jeopardy. It’s being reported that Renan Barao is going to bow out of the event, due to a foot injury.
He was slated to defend his interim UFC bantamweight title against Eddie Wineland. It’s unknown if Wineland will stay on the card or not.
The loss of this title fight is not a huge blow to the card. Dan Henderson is fighting against Rashad Evans and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is competing against Rodrigo Nogueira.
Either one of these fights can easily take the top spot of main eventing UFC 161. We will keep you updated with further information.
