@KCBanditMMA @jamiekilstein if what I'm hearing is correct, it's so much worse than what is even being rumored on Twitter.

@Jdiddy381 @KCBanditMMA @jamiekilstein again, I'm not talking about Hendo's health when I say the matter is 'worse'. Relax, people.

If what I'm hearing is correct, UFC 151 may be in desperate need of a main event. And that sucks.

Rumor? @MattHawryluk94: @tarecfighter rumor is Hendo is out with a knee injury, please tell me it is not true!

I am hearing that Dan Henderson may have injured his knee, but is unclear as of this moment whether he has pulled out of the Jon Jones fight

Rumor going around Hendo was injured by Thierry Sokoudjou at some point in this camp. Appears he'll press on.. if he has to crawl to cage. Someone described the brace Hendo is wearing as a “Stone Cold Steve Austin brace”.

Regarding Hendo. Everyone who would know that I know isn't talking. Dana not talking. Something is up.

My super secret sources tell me that there could, or perhaps could not, be something going on regarding a fight that is coming up.

Hendo pays to have his levels checked regularly. Doubt it's that.

translated, Hendo's BJJ coach says “bad day, and with a really tough decision to be made”

Henderson followed this all up with a tweet stating he had a great day in training though one of his training partners, Tarec Saffedine, tweeted he hadn't seen Hendo in a few days.

Maybe there's an injury, maybe it's just mind games, either way all parties involved have been mute on the situation. If an injury does cause the fight, which is just over a week away, to change news will likely come before week's end.
