Don't talk daft. Dana is not a stupid man, if he would of know for 3 weeks he would of put something on plan 2 incase the worst happened.

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

I think its fighters responsibility to report any injuries to UFC with confidentiality and no fears that their opponents will know about them.

That's why they should be reporting to Joe Silva, matchmaker, who can find a few options and report to the other side there is a slight chance your match made be change but keep training for your opponent.

Then you have a few fighters just watching on the sideline for any update but be ready to step up so we don't have a mess like UFC 149 or something rarely seen like UFC 151.

Sure these fighters on the sideline made not have a full camp or anything but they can figured out if they wants to fight or not.

Then you have the UFC deciding to throw the match to another event or just cancelling it and making better decision in the fairness to the fans that make this sport what it is.

This thread is awfully quiet. So much for the fairy tale of the middle weight warrior who stepped up on 8 days notice to fight the big monster jones.

Chael stepped in on a weeks notice and can't shut up about it, knowing Hendo had been hurt a few weeks now.

What???

Chael did step in on 8 days notice to fight the big monster Jones. And Jones pussed out because he didnt want to fight Chael on 8 days notice even though he has been honing his skills for the last 3 months.

Thats just facts.

Henderson was trying to take the fight on 1 leg but just at the end couldnt pull it. This isnt unheard of. Many fighters say they tried to fight through it but it eventually caught up to them. This isnt shocking in any way. Id be shocked if i found out that Dan Henderson didnt try to fight through the injury.

There are 5 other threads discussing the same thing though. Obviously its going to get quiet.

This henderson thing isnt news to anyone thats been following the story.

Dana cancelled the card, its not like the UFC has never put on a weak card before. There were other options.

I am not a JJ fan, not even close but its not his fault, he could have saved it but dana is the one who killed it,
Its done now so I'm done bitching about it.
This has shed a light on the true nature of several "people" I was on the fence about.. not a total loss..

Yea **** Dan Henderson. I mean a guy wanting to push through and fight hurt? Damn, that is just terrible.

I love when fighters are quick to pull out of fights! Those are the best fighters!
