The event will feature 8-minute bouts under EBI rules.
Jon Jones and Dan Henderson were originally scheduled to compete for the UFC light heavyweight title however, on August 23, 2012, Dana White announced that Henderson had sustained a partial rupture of his MCL and had withdrawn from the fight. White then announced via press conference that UFC 151 would be the first event in the organization’s history to be canceled, after Jones declined to fight Chael Sonnen, who agreed to take the fight on eight days’ notice.
