Blog Photo - Dana White announces UFC 151 cancelledIn a shocking turn of events, UFC President Dana White announced at a media call that due to a knee injury to Dan Henderson, UFC 151 has been cancelled. There had been rumors swirling of such an injury and speculation had been running rampant. The confirmation of said injury results in the first cancelled UFC show in 11 years.

Champion Jon Jones was offered to fight Chael Sonnen, who recently moved up to Light Heavyweight, but Jones was advised by trainer Greg Jackson not to take the fight. Dana White called Jackson an 'expletive sport killer.' UFC will lose a lot of money on refunds and PPV.

The UFC did announce Jones will fight Lyoto Machida on September 22 in Toronto and it will be called UFC 151. Very interesting to see what fights get switched around.

This is indeed a huge black eye for the UFC.
