I heard Greg Jackson told Henderson not to say again until the last minute. Greg Jackson is a sport killer.

Dan Henderson did mess up by not saying something right away.

But people that think they were prepping Chael Sonnen are reaching so far.

Dan Henderson AS ALWAYS tries to fight through his injuries and make sure he is going to show up on the date he says he is going to show up. He wanted to fight on 1 leg but Dana White made him see his doctor and the doctor said you are not allowed. That is all there is to it.

Get past the conspiracy theories you jokers.

And Sonnens 3 weeks compared to Jon Jones 12 weeks. Even if the conspiracy theory is true Jon Jones still had no reason to turn down the fight lmao

Its been known that Henderson was injured for 3 weeks for a while now. It changes nothing. Henderson wanted to go through with the fight cause thats the kind of man he is and the doctors didnt let him. Then the little brat Jon Jones who prepared for 12 weeks had to pull out because there is a change in opponents. What a embarrassment to himself.

-weidman
-gustaffson
-wanderlei

add a co-headliner with somebody like sonnen that will take a fight at any moment and boom, a significantly worse card, but still a card.

You do realize that most of those guys have fights planned??? And im not even going to bother mentioning the rest of the reasons that wasnt an option.

Maybe couple months ago when the card was being planned they could have worked out something BUT at the time alot of the guys were just coming off fights anyway. So this just isnt a realistic option.

Funny how that works out to around the same time Sonnen started talking trash on twitter to Jones lol.

You do realize its just recently that Chael Sonnen officially moved to 205 right??? As soon as the fight with Forrest Griffin was announced he was taking shots at Jones.

IN FACT he was taking shots at Jones before he moved to 205. Saying how he could move up to 205 and take the belt easy but would rather do it at MW.

And as Chael always says. If you are not calling out the Champion then Dana should give you the pink slip right away.


BUT NO im sure Dan Henderson was just biting time so they can train Chael for 3 weeks to fight Jones. Even though there was no guarantee Dana White would even allow Chael to step in instead of someone else at 205.
That makes wayyy more sense.

Who said hendo was holding out for Sonnens sake? LoL, dude all I'm implying is Sonnen saw a opportunity to weasel his way into a fight he doesn't deserve.

Yeah everyone's hating on jones yet this is all Hendo's fault. If Hendo would of spoke with dana and gave a little bit of a heads up this card could of been saved.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

I'm pretty sure Dana has know Dan was hurt since it happened. Dan was going to just fight on one leg, but the commission said it wouldn't clear him. That is why it was such short notice.

Yeah thats what i got from it also. The doctor didnt allow Dan to fight. Dan didnt back out cause he wanted to back out. There is no way Dana could have guessed that changing the opponent would cause Jones to puss out. There hasnt been a champion that has ever done that after all.

Just guessing but..

I think didnt want it to get out that he might be fighting with an injury so he kept it quiet, then as it got worse he found he could not go through as it was. So his intentions were that the fight was never off 3 weeks out and he didnt want people to know it was hurt, this sht leaks.
