    I was shocked to read tonight that UFC 151 has been cancelled.

    After Henderson pulled out due to injury, Sonnen agreed to fight Jon Jones. Jon Jones camp refused the fight on 8 days notice. I guess this is not surprising given that he trains under Greg Jackson, but it's a bit disappointing that the whole event has been pulled.

    Apparently it's the first UFC to be cancelled under Zuffa management. I'm surprised they couldn't get two other fighters for the main event, even if it was just for a number 1 contender spot or something. If Jones didn't fight, just make Sonnen a main event with someone else.
