MMA — 23 August 2012

With the biggest news in the MMA community being the UFC Scrapping UFC 151 card in light of Dan Henderson going down to an MCL Tear and more importantly Jon Jones turning down a fight vs Chael Sonnen on short notice to save the day. Instead he decided it was better for his career to turn down a fight vs Chael Sonnen on short notice as he believed it was a lose-lose situation. For a fighter who’s concern recently appeared to be about fighting more ‘profitable’ fights, one withChael Sonnenwould be a very lucrative one based on Chael’s ability to pull in PPV Buys. Instead Dan Henderson gets lost in all the talk, Chael Sonnen seems like the company hero who did all he could and Jon Jones is now public enemy number 1 in the eyes of the fans, fighters and his bosses.

Here’s some of the reaction’s on twitter:
