Do we have signs of the apocalypse since UFC151?

Starting with UFC 151 which was the first UFC cancelled due to Dan Henderson and Jon Jones, we have been plagued with some other misfortunes

Dennis Hallman didnt make weight for his fight with Thiago Tavares and was released by ufc on a win.

Jeremy Stephens got jailed on the day of his fight with Yves Edwards

Geronimo dos Santos was scheduled to make his UFC debut in a week against Gabriel Gonzaga but wasnt cleared due to Hepatitis B

What's going on?

Following: Cain , JDS, Werdum, Shogun, Machida, Weidman, Pettis, Aldo, Melendez

Starting with 151? Look at the injury rate this year.

it started at 149 when it was the worst card maybe ever, then 151. Too much talent gap between the champs and the challengers is sucking all the entertainment out of the title fights.

lets be honest, Steve Jennum replacing an injured Shamrock really set a precedent.

I'm not talking about injuries, unfortunately it's much bigger then that.

UFC 151 was the first UFC event cancelled
2 fights got cancelled on THE DAY of the event
A fighter (Geronimo Dos Santos) tested for Hep B a week before the event, which means he may never fight in the UFC
Also what was up with Jorgen Kruth RETIRING from MMA even before his UFC debut??

You cant seriously compare all those extreme cases to some injuries incurred about a month prior to an event

Obviously American MMA is coming to an end. I mean, why wouldn't the mishaps of 5 or 6 people **** up everything for everybody in the US?
