UFC 161 in Tweets: Pros score Rashad Evans vs. Dan Henderson, react to Stipe Miocic's dominating upset over Roy Nelson

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Like a page ripped straight out of 2012's injury parade, UFC 161 wound up a card littered with last-second changes. And while two future Hall of Famers, Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson, fought to a tight split decision in night's main event, it was an unheralded firefighter from Ohio who ultimately stole the show in the eyes of Winnipeg fans.

Originally slated to fight on the night's undercard, Stipe Miocic took advantage of the UFC's bad luck, seized his unexpected opportunity, and utterly dominated top-5 heavyweight Roy Nelson en route to the biggest unanimous decision win of his career. That victory, combined with further heavyweight fireworks, the fourth women's bout in UFC history, and a hotly contested main event, left plenty of MMA goodness to discuss for the slew of pros watching at home.
