Rumors flying around Hendo hurt his leg, and has to pull out of the fight.

**Edit** Didn't see the whole thread in the offtopic section dedicated to the "Rumor"

Some fight is getting moved from another card. Not sure if its too late for a replacement without Dana laying down a lot of $$ to Jones and said new opponent

There's a chance it's the FLW title fight is what I heard FWIW.

I hope that's not the case though, there are guys that would take the Jones fight out there.

I don't think the card can survive or do well without a good main events. With co-main event already replaced.

I hate to see a guy put in there on 9 days notice. Jones was already complaining about not wanting to fight Machida.

MM/JoeB fight on 22nd, which if they moved to Sep 1 could but about 2-3 weeks from them.

BUT, UFC 152 could survive if MM/JoeB moved to UFC 151 as 152 has Stann/Bisping which could become new main event. Bisping already declared it was the "real" main event awhile ago.

From this day forth, Jones will forever be known as "Mayweather Jones". Jones wants to pick and choose who he wants to fight. Try being a true champion, and fight whoever they put in front of you. Stop making excuses about who deserves what. Your job as a fighter is to fight. So, stop being a bitch and man up and take the fight. Jones needs to look at the big picture. There are a lot of people that were counting on the money they would make during that fight, from soda vendors to t-shirt sales. The working class people of that venue will suffer because of his arrogance. Definitely not the attitude of a great champion. P.S. I would fight my own mother in a backyard if I had to. LOL!
