UFC 161 is this Saturday in Winnipeg. Before you tune in, see what questions will be answered by these fights.

Does Dan Henderson have another great fight in him? Think back of some of the greatest MMA bouts you've seen. There's a pretty good chance at least one of Henderson's bouts is somewhere on your list. On Saturday, he's facing Rashad Evans, and he has the chance to give another memorable performance. Will he do it, or will his 42-year-old body not it perform like he used to?

Will a heavyweight title contender make himself known? There are two heavyweight bouts on Saturday's main card. Pat Barry is taking on Shawn Jordan, and Roy Nelson is fighting Stipe Miocic. Fabricio Werdum is supposed to be the next contender after the Cain Velasquez-Junior dos Santos bout, but one good performance can change a fighter's fortune quickly. Will anyone make a major leap forward?

Will Alexis Davis beat a path to a title shot? The Canadian bantamweight will be fighting in front of a home crowd against Rosi Sexton. She won her last two fights by rear naked choke. Will she get another one and make her stake on the title?

Which Tyron Woodley will show up? In February, Woodley knocked out Jay Hieron in 36 seconds. Last July, he was knocked out by Nate Marquardt in just over a minute. Against Jake Shields, which Woodley will we see?
