Dan Henderson has suffered a partial MCL tear, couldn't keep training through it. UFC 151 has been canceled. Sign o' the times, big time.


Jeremy Botter ?@jeremybotter
Dana says this is one of his all-time lows. They are canceling UFC 151.



A partial tear to the medial collateral ligament in Dan Henderson's right knee forced the cancelation Thursday of the entire UFC 151 card, which was slated for Sept. 1 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
UFC president Dana White said light heavyweight champion Jon Jones declined to fight Chael Sonnen, whom he proposed as a replacement for Henderson. That would have kept the show alive, but White said when Jones wouldn't agree to meet Sonnen, he had no choice but to cancel the show.
"I'm stunned," White told Yahoo! Sports Thursday. "We've never had a situation where this happened before, where a champion wouldn't step up to fight."

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

White states Greg Jackson said on taking this Sonnen fight for Jones: "This would be the biggest mistake of your career."

Well, I guess the takeaway will be a bunch of fighters ready to fill in the gaps on other cards.

Jones has steadily lost fans over the past several months, and this is basically career suicide for him. The die hards are never going to let him live this down. Incredibly disappointing, and I really can't think of one good thing to say about the guy now outside of his in-cage skills.

Holy Shit this is so fucked

Jones would have gained respect in my eyes had he taken the Sonnen fight on short notice. I know I knock the guy but taking on a guy like Sonnen in this situation gains you nothing but brownie points but Greg Jackson fucked that up for him. Both of their images too a hit today. He Greg, go get some fans, brah

The LHW champ is already running scared of the largest arms in West Linn, Oregon. What I've taken from this is Uncle Chael will whoop Jones and now the world knows he's scared!

Dana: "We've never ever had a fighter refuse to fight a guy... every day, crazy shit happens, here's a new crazy one for us."


So, I guess Dana was lying when Shogun turned down the Glover fight.

-------------------------

8 days is a little ridiculous to set up a new fight, especially a main event.
