UFC 151 Jones vs Henderson PosterWith the injury plagued UFC 149 event finally on lockdown for Saturday night, promotion officials are finally able to flesh out the fight card for UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson.

The UFC on Thursday announced verbal agreements are in place for a lightweight bout between Daron Cruickshank and Henry Martinez, and made official the previously rumored bout between John Lineker and Yasuhiro Urushitani.

Cruickshank (11-2) is currently in the midst of a five-fight winning streak, including a unanimous decision victory over Chris Tickle at the recent Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale.

Martinez (9-2) had a four-fight streak come to a halt, losing a split decision in his UFC debut, but rebounded with a split decision victory over Bernardo Magalhaes at UFC on FX 3 last month in Florida.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones puts his belt on the line against Dan Henderson in the UFC 151 main event on Sept. 1 in Las Vegas.
