Watch Highlights of Evans vs. Henderson at UFC 161 (Video)

UFC 161

UFC 161’s main event between former champions Dan Henderson and Rashad Evans did not fail to deliver. After three rounds of back-and-forth hand-slinging, “Suga” picks up the judges split-decision (full results here).

Not too out of character, but as Chael Sonnen notes, Henderson stuck to a low-stance throughout, waiting for the takedown attempts that came sparsely, surprisingly. Evans had a different plan in mind which proved to be the right one — to use his speed  and beat Hendo to the punch. There was a knockdown by Hendo in the first with a stiff jab, but it was Rashad who proved to be the more conditioned fighter, using his stamina to out-strike him in the second and third.

The win snaps a two-fight loss for Evans, while putting Dan on his second loss, after his controversial decision defeat to Lyoto Machida.
