    Default *RUMOR ALERT: Dan Henderson possibly injured ahead of UFC 151 title bout

    The rumors are flying all over twitter that Henderson may be injured, and Kenny Florian just tweeted this: Kenny Florian ‏@kennyflorian
    Hearing that we may have some disappointed @UFC fans soon due to some unfortunate circumstances for an upcoming card. 😔

    Obviously nothing is official but it's quite possible that something is up...

    How horrible would this be for the UFC if it turns out to be true? Jake Ellenberger vs Jay Hieron would have to be the worst main event in history and I'm not sure anyone would want to take on Jones with a week and a half's notice...

    This is probably the rumor that Kenny is alluding to on Twitter.

    This card is pretty thin, and Zuffa was banking on the main event to deliver. Too bad, because they just started adding depth to their TV (UFC on FOX5) and PPV (UFC 155) cards. This one is gonna take some major PR to smooth things over with the fans who bought tickets expecting a title fight.

    I do remember hearing from Dana that he had Goose "waiting in the wings" just in case one of these guys were to drop out. It is mighty close to go-time, but I'd heard his name as a replacement prior to this rumour starting tonight....

    That would be a great contingency.

    But would it sell? I'm not sure Goose has the name recognition to help sell this card.

    I think it would be a bad call for Goose to step up and take this fight (short notice or not - Goose is not ready for Jones yet).
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
