Dana White announces the cancelation of UFC 151

UFC 151 will go down in history as the event that never happened as a very angry Dana White today announced the cancelation of the pay-per-view from Las Vegas.

The challenger for the title, Dan Henderson, suffered a partial MCL tear and was unable to take on the fight. White announced that Chael Sonnen had agreed to take on Jon Jones on a week notice however just before the conference call started, Jones refused to take on the fight, effectively killing the main event and the whole card.

The UFC President blamed MMA trainer Greg Jackson, calling him a “f**king sport killer,” for getting into Jones’ ear to not take the fight.

“This is one of those selfish disgusting decisions that doesn’t just affect you, but you affected 16 other people’s lives,” White said during the call.

There has never been a UFC show canceled just a week before the actual show, and the cancelation will take a big hit on the UFC finances as the company has to refund all the tickets and spent money on print, TV, and online advertising for nothing.

White said that the new main event for UFC 152 in Toronto is now Jones taking on Lyoto Machida for the title.

“If I get a call he won’t fight Machida, we’ll have another conference call later this afternoon and it won’t be good,” a pissed off White added.
