RUMOR: Dan Henderson possibly out of UFC 151.

Kenny Florian ‏@kennyflorian

Hearing that we may have some disappointed @UFC fans soon due to some unfortunate circumstances for an upcoming card. ��

For what it's worth, there's a rumor going around Dan Henderson is injured, so I assume if this is true, this is it.

And to add even more fuel to the fire...

Jeremy Botter ‏@jeremybotter
If what I'm hearing is correct, UFC 151 may be in desperate need of a main event. And that sucks.

@MMAdamMartin

I am hearing that Dan Henderson may have injured his knee, but is unclear as of this moment whether he has pulled out of the Jon Jones fight

Luke Thomas @SBNLukeThomas

@Jdiddy381 @KCBanditMMA @jamiekilstein again, I'm not talking about Hendo's health when I say the matter is 'worse'. Relax, people.

So I've heard he may have a knee injury but Luke Thomas who is the most credible of those guys is saying he doesn't have a health issue, apparently. Hopefully he's not had some sort of family crisis here.

Ok so Luke Thomas is also saying it's not doping either, so...

Jon Jones is fine
Hendo's health is fine.
Hendo appears to be within the allowed limits.

This isn't looking good.

Enter The Dragon. That would be ironic...

Man that would be a bummer.

But i really really hope if Dan Henderson is injured then he will pull out of this fight. I dont need another Main Event that sucks and then later excuses about injuries are thrown out. Dan Henderson fought Jake Shields injured and that didnt do anyone a favor except Shields. And Jon Jones is 10x the opponent Shields is.

Yeah it is a very messed up thing to allow to happen. This will impact the UFC hugely if true. Sept 1st is the fight. Dan should be doing light training the last 2 weeks. Stuff like swimming,Bike Riding, Punching bags, And just repeating combos and dodging punches with a coach.

I do have a feeling that this isnt true. I certainly pray it isnt.

I mean he is a roided out 40 year old, he might've injured himself in a light jog.

I honestly can't fathom this. This is near unprecedented.

It'd be like LeBron James injuring himself in practice during the Home/Away switch in the NBA Finals.

I understand things like cuts because those can just be freak accidents.



....


EDIT: Just read Lyoto's post.....AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA




**** TRT.

Oh and Im guessing Dana's changing his mind on the whole HOF thing.


Gotta love Team Quest....a stable of cheating, old wrestlers.

Can't see that its trt, he's been on it since pride came to the US. So I can't see that he would be fine up until possibly the biggest fight of his career.
