UPDATE: UFC 151 canceled, Jon Jones refuses to fight Chael Sonnen with Dan Henderson hurt. Read full story here.

Either Dan Henderson is really hurt, or Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White is making an appearance to remind all mixed martial arts (MMA) fans not to listen to the "dummies" on the Internet.

What else could it be?

"Hendo" is expected to challenge Jon Jones for the light heavyweight title at the UFC 151: "Jones vs. Henderson" pay-per-view (PPV) event on Sept. 1, 2012 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Realistically, there isn't another bout on the "Sin City" fight card that would warrant a "special announcement."

The timing is also anything but coincidental, as the Internet nearly broke last night with rumors of an injury to Henderson, who tried to keep the bloodhounds at bay with a pair of cryptic tweets.

We'll be able to separate fact from fiction soon enough.

Keep it locked in to as we'll bring you the live announcement as it breaks later today (Aug. 23, 2012) at 2 p.m. ET.

Fingers crossed.
