Henderson hurt for 3 weeks

All could have been avoided if they said something.

I think it's obvious they were prepping for Chael to come in and fight in Hendo's place.

you honestly think an extra 2 weeks would have made difference?

The Best Around 08-24-2012 08:56 PM

Yes. That would have been a month of prep as opposed to a week and a half. I get Hendo wanting to continue training but the right thing to do would have been to make the UFC aware. Then a backup plan could have been formed. Instead we got this big cluster.

what I don't get is why they didn't spend a little more time trying to plan things out instead of cancelling it. Just make up a headliner using two of

-sonnen
-anderson
-machida
-evans
-shogun
-rampage
-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.

Like I suspected, Henderson jacked this up from the beginning. Had they been able to go to Jones three weeks ago with a new opponent he might have took the fight maybe not but Dana could have saved the card with that kind of time.

So it's all Dan's doing! Quick, everyone, now it's time to slam Henderson!

**** YOU, DAN HENDERSON!

This is actually a legit point. If Hendo had let the UFC known ASAP they could have already started prepping JBJ for a different fight.

So did he hurt it again 2 days before the event (while he was obv. going to carry the injury to the fight) or whats the dealio?

I understood it that Dan was going to fight, but it just wasn't getting any better and Dana had a UFC doc look at it and they told him Dan wouldn't be cleared by the commission.
