On June 15, the Ultimate Fighting Championship will present UFC 161. The original UFC 161 card was set to feature a title fight and several of the most popular fighters in the sport. Several weeks ago, the Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland interim UFC bantamweight title fight was scrapped from the card after Barao was forced out due to injury. Then came the news yesterday that the fight between Mauricio Rua vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira was being scrapped due to an injury to Nogueira. This is just another huge blow to a UFC event due to injury. In its current state, does UFC 161 warrant your pay per view buy?

These rankings only reflect post-TUF statistics.
