UFC 151 has been cancelled because Jon Jones will not accept a replacement opponent. The UFC light-heavyweight champion Jones, turned down a match with Chael Sonnen after his scheduled opponent Dan Henderson tore his MCL and has to withdraw. The decision of one of his best fighters to not take a fight has angered UFC Pres Dana White and left many fans and fighters questioning Jones’ toughness. Boxers and MMA fighters often take replacement fighters on short notice, so Jones’ decision is questionable. He will fight again in late September and I sincerely hope he gets the shit beat out of him.
