Default UFC 151 cancelled

Dana just announced the event cancelled. Hendo has a partial tear in his MCL.

Chael was offered the fight and had accepted the fight, but Jones didn't accept the fight. First time that they have ever cancelled and event and as Dana put it, "Tito never refused a fight".

Jones will fight Machida on Sept. 22.

Dana is blaming Greg Jackson for this as he told Jones not to take the fight with Chael.

good for jones and jackson refusing the chael fight ... title shots should be earned, not gifted because someone is a good talker .. but now at least we get to hear chael talk about how jones ducked him .. LOL

He cost them the entire card!!! What about all the undercard fighters that NEEDED to fight, that needed the money?

Good for Chael for stepping up.

sorry man, but you can't be worried about everyone .. they will get to fight .. dana is just mad that he is losing all tihs money ... sure, good for chael, he now can say jbj ducked him, but really, what did he have to lose? he is almost .500 in the ufc, coming off a loss and was training with hendo for this fight .. he has absolutely nothing to lose ... good for jones and the jackson camp in ensuring some integrity stays in the sport of mma
