TORONTO -- Two more Canadians have been added to the UFC 161 card in Winnipeg on June 15.

Lightweight Mitch (Danger Zone) Clarke of Saskatoon (9-2) has been matched with England's John (The One) Maguire (18-5). Maguire is a former welterweight who, like Clarke, has lost his last two UFC fights.

And light-heavyweight Ryan (Big Deal) Jimmo of Edmonton by way of Saint John, N.B., will face Croatian Igor Pokrajac. Jimmo (17-2) is coming off a loss to James Te Huna after making short work of Anthony Perosh.

The previously announced main event sees Renan Barao (32-1 with on no contest) defend his interim bantamweight title against Eddie Wineland (20-8-1).

Other bouts include light-heavyweights Mauricio (Shogun) Rua against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Rashad Evans versus Dan Henderson.

Other Canadians on the MTS Centre card include welterweight Sean Pierson and lightweight Sam (Hands of Stone) Stout.
