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.

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.

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.

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.
