Jon Jones vs Dan Henderson - UFC 151A shockwave was felt through the MMA world on Thursday at UFC President Dana White announced that UFC 151 would be canceled.

White stated that top light heavyweight contender Dan Henderson had suffered a knee injury, forcing him out of his scheduled bout against champion Jon Jones. The UFC offered the fight to former middleweight contender Chael Sonnen, but then much to their own shock Jones turned the bout down.

On Thursday, MMAWeekly Radio features a special edition of the show with debate about the cancelation of the card.

How much damage does this do to Jon Jones in the MMA world?

Should Jones have accepted the fight with Sonnen or is he not to blame for this situation?

This is a special edition of MMAWeekly Radio for Thursday, August 23
