Props to Dan Henderson for withdrawing the fight. He probably would be bashed by MMA “fans” if he losses and tells everyone about his injury. Probably he wouldn’t be next in line for a shot if he regains health, but I want him to return healthy and climb that ladder. He’s old but, he is hendo after all.
About Dana White, I think he has a right to be harsh about JBJ. Of course money is a factor, understand that those who bought tickets didn’t just buy UFC 151 tickets, they probably reserved hotel rooms and plane tickets just for that. And these people wouldn’t only bash JBJ for that but also Dana White. One more thing of course, it’s also about the UFC 151 card factor. If that main event would be scrapped……then its over………not the most appealing card you’ll watch, it’s their fault they put that up.
About Jone Bones, he is a champion, yeah he could choose whom he wants to fight. However, he should also know the weight of the whole card he’s carrying. Chael Sonnen stepped up inreplacement, yeah I don’t think he deserves that shot but who else stepped up in replacement? At least someone did stepped up. Even thought money is a big factor here…he did what others didn’t. So a bit of credit to Sonnen.
Lastly about the rest of the fighters in that card, it’s a pity. Imagine all the hard work, dedication, money they poured in to fight for this card. I’m not a fighter but I know one thing……fighter’s need to make hand to mouth.
JBJ will face Vitor Belfort for the LHW belt at UFC 152
