MISFIRE IN MANITOBA: In Winnipeg, Paul Friesen writes "independent reviews" of UFC 161, the promotion's first appearance in the city, "mostly panned" the event. MMA writer Mike Sloan said that the main event fight between Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson was "'three rather pedestrian rounds,' on a night that wasn't up to par." Local fight fans "were assured this was no second-rate slugfest." But MMAFighting.com's Luke Thomas wrote, "There were terrible decisions, boring fights and a lot that felt underwhelming." BloodyElbow.com's Zane Simon wrote, "All told it was a mixed event, not great, not terrible" (WINNIPEG SUN, 6/18).
