UFC 151 LogoRumors about a change for UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson – which is slated to feature Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson in the main event in Las Vegas – were hot and heavy late Wednesday night, though no concrete reports surfaced.

Fueling the fire, the Ultimate Fighting Championship Thursday morning sent out an invitation to members of the media for a special, hastily put together UFC 151 conference call with UFC president Dana White.

The inivitation stated that White would be on the call to make “a special announcement… regarding the upcoming UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson event scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 1.”

The rumors that surfaced late Wednesday surround main eventer Dan Henderson and the possibility that he may be injured and out of the fight with Jon Jones, but MMAWeekly.com was unable to confirm such rumors prior to Thursday’s conference call. Rest assured, MMAWeekly.com will report White’s announcement within moments.
