Dana White has just announced on a media call that UFC 151 has been canceled. Dan Henderson suffered a partial tear of his MCL. Ariel Helwani, who was on the conference call said the fight was then offered to Chael Sonnen.
Dana: One guy said he would fight Jon Jones and that was Chael Sonnen. He said he would fight him last night.
According to Helwani, Jon Jones rejected the fight with Sonnen.
UFC Started planning the promotion and then Jon Jones said, "I'm not going to fight Chael Sonnen on eight days notice."
So, UFC 151 is scrapped -- completely. Henderson is devasted about the injury, and Jon Jones will face Vitor Belfort in Toronto on September 22.
