The 13-bout roster for “UFC 161: Barao vs. Wineland” has been finalized. And if it wasn’t understood before, realize now that the planet’s most prestigious mixed martial arts promotion is taking this female fighting thing very seriously. Alexis Davis and Rosi Sexton, the third women’s scrap to take place inside the Octagon, will appear in the pay-per-view portion of the lineup. The bantamweights are following in the main card footsteps of Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Karmouche (UFC 157) and Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano (TUF 17 Finale). The June 15 show features a bantamweight title tilt between (interim) champion Renan Barao (pictured) and Eddie Wineland. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira serve as the night’s co-main attraction. Light heavyweights Dan Henderson and Rashad Evans receive third-to-top billing. MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Canada hosts the festivities.  Here is the show’s official agenda: Preliminary Card: Roland Delorme vs. Edwin Figueroa John Maguire vs. Mitch Clarke TJ Waldburger vs. Sean Pierson Dustin Pague vs. Yves Jabouin Ryan Jimmo vs. Igor Pokrajac Soa Palelei vs. Stipe Miocic Sam Stout vs. Isaac Vallie-Flagg Jake Shields vs. Tyron Woodley Main Card: Alexis Davis vs. Rosi Sexton Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Eddie Wineland vs. Renan Barao (UFC bantamweight champion) (Picture provided by Steven Houchin of Shotgun Images)
