UFC president Dana White will make an announcement regarding next week's UFC 151 event today at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT).

Although officials didn't detail what will be revealed, the media call comes less than a day after rumors surfaced that headliner and title challenger Dan Henderson may be injured and unable to fight.

You can listen to the media call live on MMAjunkie.com Radio at www.mmajunkie.com/radio.

Sonnen is the only one I can see stepping up on such short notice.

agreed. hendo was the only real contender at LHW until chael came up. jones has cleared the division out other than those two. im down for a chael vs bones fight. its not tha way i would have liked it to go but i will take whatever as long as it doesnt involve rampage, griffin, rashad, or shogun.

Well if they can't find a replacement I could see them just moving the entire event to a later date, maybe in October or November.

That's not an option at this point.

edit: I stand corrected...first time for everything.

My thought is it has to be Machida. I said it in another thread, but he's next in line anyway, always is training, and doesn't have to cut a ton of weight if any. My fingers are crossed that it's Chael though.

I'd rather the main event be cancelled than have to put a guy in on 9 days notice.

Have you seen the rest of the card? They'd be lucky to do 100,000 buys if they just scrapped the fight and ran with the rest of the card.

Their going to have to pay "Anderson Silva" money to get Machida to fight imo.

Not to mention, Prozacnation and the other 15k people who buy tickets for Vegas events would have Dana's head.

Volkman/Roller can headline.

If they move Flyweight title up. 152 could survive w/ Stann/Bisping as main.

I just don't want to see Jones face a weak guy b/c of the short notice.

But I guess it doesn't matter much to me though, because I don't watch the main card ppv.

Sweet lord these rumors better be false. We saw the same thing when Rashad Evans was waiting for Shogun. It's Murphy's Law of MMA. If you want to "wait for your title shot", you'll probably end up waiting a lot longer than you expected.

Just got a text saying Jones is refusing to fight anyone else, wow. I hope my source is wrong...
