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.

@frontrowbrian

UFC 151 Cancelled - Machida was offered JOnes. Said no. Chael was offered Jones. Accepted. Jones declined. May be for 9/22

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!
