Scenario: You wake up this morning, remembering all the turmoil that led to the cancellation of UFC 151, which was scheduled for last night (Sat., Sept. 1, 2012) in Las Vegas, Nevada. You get online with the brief flickering of hope that it was all a dream and Jon Jones did, in fact, fight Dan Henderson.
Sadly you find this isn't the Matrix and you're not Neo, unable to shape the world as you see fit. This is, indeed, the real world and UFC 151 never was.
That means you didn't get the chance to come to MMAmania.com to watch highlights of "Bones" battling "Hendo," of which we would have inevitably had. It would have been a good fight, too, a contest between two of the very best in the light heavyweight division.
Instead, we got recaps and endless looks back at the circumstances surrounding the event cancellation. Which, quite frankly, sucks.
So here's the only way to try to make it better -- free fights of the men who were supposed to compete last night. After the jump you can watch Jon Jones successfully defend his 205-pound title for the first time by choking out Quinton Jackson and Dan Henderson send Michael Bisping's head into the cheap seats with arguably the greatest knockout in Octagon history at UFC 100.
Oh and Chael Sonnen vs. Anderson Silva from UFC 117 is thrown in for good measure.
