Dan Henderson injury rumors run wild on Twitter as 'Hendo' tweets he's 'training' for UFC 151 and 'happy'

Pop quiz, hotshot.

When was the last time former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Dan Henderson pulled out of a fight? Or the last time he mucked up his testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and couldn't get licensed?


Despite being the model for consistency, the mixed martial arts (MMA) media helped fan the flames on the possibility of an injury to Henderson, because everyone was "hearing" the ex-PRIDE superstar was down and out -- but no one could (or would) confirm it.

Here's what "Hendo" had to say to the boys working the mill.

"Just got done with a great training session with the boys. @CyrilleDiabate @tarecfighter @heathlsims @RFBJJ @rockholdMMA. Headed to the house to get worked on by @msmariahv to finish of the day happy."

The fact Tarec Saffiedine mentioned on Twitter that he hasn't seen "Dangerous Dan" since his last fight (despite being tagged) kicked this thing into overdrive, but as of this moment, nothing official has come from the brass at Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) or its president, Dana White.

For now, it's business as usual.

That means Jon Jones still has an opponent for the UFC 151 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, which takes place a week from Saturday (Sept. 1, 2012) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, for "Bones" 205-pound title.

At least, that's "what I'm hearing."

Stay tuned to for any changes to the "Jones vs. Henderson" fight card and line-up, as well as any other breaking news coming out of "Sin City," as it develops.
