Dana White and the UFC have been forced to cancel the upcoming UFC 151 card after Dan Henderson suffered an injury and they could not find a replacement to fight Jon Jones.

With the entire card cancelled, there are 20 other fighters whose fights were cancelled. They will have to wait to get their next paycheck.

Charlie Brenneman tweeted about when he and Rick Story took a fight at UFC on Versus on just 24 hours notice.

Then he followed up responding to a tweet from Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com.

Then, Shane Roller, who was supposed to face Jacob Volkmann, found out about the bad news.

Danny Castillo seems to be taking it a little lighter, as he was able to make a joke out of the situation.

Tim Means, who was going to fight Abel Trujillo, doesn't seem to harbor any ill will.

Jeff Hougland appeared not to believe the news...

...then made it clear that he was going to continue eating clean until he knew for a fact that his fight was off.

Kyle Noke sends his condolences to the fans,

We leave you with Eddie Yagin's initial reaction to the news.

This is certainly not a good day for MMA, but especially not a good day for the fighters who were supposed to fight at UFC 151. Here's hoping they all get fights scheduled soon.
