Default UFC 151 cancelled due to it being weak!

Jones ****ed everyone involved in this fight card in anyway but ultimately 151 fell apart due to a weak bill. Jones and Dan could've got injured. I think that happened with Edgar vs Maynard. The fact is the UFC cards have been getting weaker and are not coming across as 5 fights deep as they once did.

Someone asked this question on the conference call and either on purpose or accidentally Dana didn't answer it.

I agree. Dana can complain all he wants about Jones, but he's just deflecting the blame from where it belongs: the UFC. They have been putting on shit cards for months, and the fact that this card stunk so bad that it fell apart without Henderson speaks volumes. Jones needs to take a fight against a bloated middleweight he would crush just so Dana and Lorenzo can line their pockets more? Boo hoo. This doesn't hurt the fan because who wants to see Sonnen get knocked out again anyway? It only hurts that bald-headed turd and his mafia cronies.

I'm sure they could get Sonnen to step in. Why don't they try that?

Im not sure, not a Sonnen fan but as a stop gap it would be doable

Hope they dont do anything drastic like cancel the card because it looks pretty weak without the main event

Man, I can't recall them cancelling a card and I'm going back 11 years. If that were to happen, I'm sure a lot of people will blame the card while a lot of others blame Jones.
