Twitter Rumor: Henderson may be out of Jones fight at UFC 151

source: twitter

There are thus far unsubstantiated rumors that Dan Henderson is out of the title fight versus Jon Jones at UFC 151. Injury was the initial rumored cause for the rumored withdrawal. Later rumors cited elevated testosterone levels.

Hearing that we may have some disappointed @UFC fans soon due to some unfortunate circumstances for an upcoming card

Luke Thomas ‏@SBNLukeThomas
@KCBanditMMA @jamiekilstein if what I'm hearing is correct, it's so much worse than what is even being rumored on Twitter.

 Luke Thomas ‏@SBNLukeThomas
@Jdiddy381 @KCBanditMMA @jamiekilstein again, I'm not talking about Hendo's health when I say the matter is 'worse'. Relax, people.

Jeremy Botter ‏@jeremybotter
If what I'm hearing is correct, UFC 151 may be in desperate need of a main event. And that sucks.

Matt Lindland ‏@mattlindland
Rumor? @MattHawryluk94: @tarecfighter rumor is Hendo is out with a knee injury, please tell me it is not true!

Adam Martin ‏@MMAdamMartin
I am hearing that Dan Henderson may have injured his knee, but is unclear as of this moment whether he has pulled out of the Jon Jones fight

Rumor going around Hendo was injured by Thierry Sokoudjou at some point in this camp. Appears he'll press on.. if he has to crawl to cage.
Someone described the brace Hendo is wearing as a "Stone Cold Steve Austin brace".

FrontRowBrian ‏@FrontRowBrian
Regarding Hendo. Everyone who would know that I know isn't talking. Dana not talking. Something is up.

My super secret sources tell me that there could, or perhaps could not, be something going on regarding a fight that is coming up.

Hendo pays to have his levels checked regularly. Doubt it's that.

FrontRowBrian ‏@FrontRowBrian
translated, Hendo's BJJ coach says "bad day, and with a really tough decision to be made"

MMA Roasted ‏@MMARoasted
If Hendo pulls out of UFC 151 the Main Event will be Team Alpha Male having a Potato Sack race using Cheick Kongo's condoms.

Hendo's BJJ coach tweeted an image of the legend sparring with Luke Rockhold that maybe shows a knee brace.

@danhendo sparring with @strikeforce Champion @rockholdMMA @TeamQuestMMA

And what does Hendo have to say about it all?

Dan Henderson ‏@danhendo
Just got done with a great training session with the boys. @CyrilleDiabate @tarecfighter @heathlsims @RFBJJ @rockholdMMA

 Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani
Every person attached to that Hendo tweet promptly retweeted it in some form moments later. Impressive.

However, it appears that at least one fighter cited in Hendo's workout tweet has not even seen him in a while.

Nathan Awesome ‏@nathangielis
Dan tweets about his great training session w/ Tarec, 25mins ago Tarec tweets he hasn’t seen Dan since Saturday….

Matt Hawryluk @MattHawryluk94
@tarecfighter rumor is Hendo is out with a knee injury, please tell me it is not true

Tarec Saffiedine @tarecfighter
Tarec Saffiedine ‏@tarecfighter
je ne sais pas, je ne l ai pas vu depuis mon combat, jespere que cest juste une rumeure!
haven't seen him since my fight. Idk, hope its not true!!

There are severall reports that Tarec deleted the post, but this is untrue. The posts are visible when selecting 'all' on Tarec's twitter feed.
