UFC 151: Henderson vs. Jones — Live Results & Commentary. Wait, What?!

For an event that was to be headlined by two of the sports all-time greats, and a supporting cast that was pretty much garbage-ass, it’s disappointing that tonight you have no PPV to watch, no excuse to spend even more time at Hooters, and no good reason not to attend the wedding your girlfriend has been nagging you about going to. But if you thought that was going to stop us from milking this thing for everything its got, you are severely wrong, my friend.

Taking the reigns tonight is longtime CagePotato contributor/Twitter pseudo celebrity Jason Moles. This card will either be a smashing success thanks to the main event or a failure of epic proportions thanks to everything else. Stick around, insult him in the comments section, and be sure to tell all of your friends about the only UFC 151 liveblog on the internet (EVER!) can be found. Now let’s get to it.

Preliminary card results
- Michael Johnson def. Danny Castillo via unanimous decision (29-28 x 2, 30-27)

John Lineker vs. Yasuhiro Urishitani

Before we get started, I’m not typing Urshitani twenty times so he will be known as YU from here on out. Both men looked pumped. Lots of pressure to start the night of right.

Round 1: Lineker lands a nice leg kick. They both trade a few jabs. YU shoots for the takedown and gets it. Does a little G&P before Lineker wall walks his way up the cage. They separate. Both looking to make their move. It’s YU who gets another takedown. Lineker sweeps, very impressive. Lineker raining down punches. YU grabs hold of his arms. The bell sounds.

Round 2: Lineker comes out guns blazing. YU shoots for a takedown and gets stuffed. Shoots again successfully. Lineker looking for a kimura. He’s got it. Looks to be locked in. Rogan is going bananas! YU escapes and gets butterfly guard. Lineker looking to drop bombs but gets his arm caught. YU has an armbar locked in! There’s the tapout. It’s all over!

Winner: Yasuhiro Urishitani, 2:55 of round 2, submission due to armbar.

Dennis Hallman vs. Thiago Tavares

Ya know, every time I see Hallman wearing anything more than a bananna hammock I do cartwheels around my living room. Tonight is no different.

Round 1: The crowd is already booing. Looked like Tavares may have kicked as Hallman as he was attempting to touch gloves. Not to worry, Hallman is more than game to return the favor with a well-timed kick of his own. Hallman shoots a double leg. Back right up on the feet. Tavares lands a nice hook. Hallman answers with a huge right that sends Tavares to the mat. Tavares is bleeding but gets back to his feet. They clinch. If this were on FX, they’d have to swing by Home Depot for more spray paint — looks someone sacrificed a small animal in there. They break. Hallman lands an elbow backing away. Tavares is hurt but is saved by the horn.

Round 2: Seeing Arianny up close never gets old, amirite? Hallman is attacking like there’s no tomorrow. Lefts and rights flying. Tavares still bleeding like a stuck pig. Tavares moving well, too bad it’s towards Hallman’s right hand. Did this guy not see Bisping vs. Henderson at UFC 100? Hallman cuts him off, slips a hook, and boom! – Tavares is out.

Winner: Dennis Hallman, 1:35 of round 2, KO

Dennis Siver vs. Eddie Yagin

It’s not fair to call Dennis Siver a one-trick pony, but it’s not like he’s got an entire arsenal at his disposal either. If there’s one thing Eddie Yagin needed to prepare for, it’s that sick spinning back kick. Siver walking out to “Last Resort” by Papa Roach. Ahh, good times. Yagin proving he’s the more sophisticated music lover with “American Badass” by Kid Rock.

Round 1: Siver opens up with a punch, kick and 3-4 solid strikes. Yagin tries to clinch, gets it. Dirty boxing against the cage. Siver breaks free and drops Yagin with a left head kick. He pounces but Yagin has recovered. Back to the clinch. Yagin shoots for a takedown and fails. Siver gets walked back and peppered with a few jabs followed by a hook. Siver blocks a head kick. End of round one. Feeling out process over, I hope.

Round 2: Siver eats a head kick. Yagin gets the clinch but does nothing. Both men tired of hugging and start fighting. Nice little back and forth here. Not sure what happened but Siver is cut. Yagin gets him against the cage and continues the punishment. Siver moves away and lands a nice body kick. Yagin stays light on his feet and gets another takedown. Full mount and lands several shots to the head. Siver gives up his back. After a scramble, Siver is on top and moves to side control. Horn.

Round 3: Siver’s cut looks nasty. Not goat vagina nasty, but still. Siver finds his range and lands a few body kicks. Excellent head kick cuts Yagin. Spinning back kick!!! Left hook by Siver. Yagin counters. These two are just banging! Another head kick by Siver. Back and forth: I punch you – you punch me. Siver gets taken down, reverses and gets locked in a triangle. Siver powers out of it. On the feet they trade some more. Horn. This one’s going to the judges.

Winner: Dennis Siver, 29-28 Unanimous Decision

Jake Ellenberger vs. Jay Hieron

Ellenberger doesn’t care about the Eminem Curse, trots to the cage as ‘Till I Collapse’ plays over the speakers. Hieron gets his hat stolen by some groupie. That should rake in about tree-fiddy on eBay. I should mention that this isn’t the first time these two have met. At IFL: Championship 2006 “The Thoroughbred” took Ellenberger the full three rounds and won a decision. Will tonight be any different?

Round 1: No feeling out process for these hungry lions. Hieron’s got a lot riding on tonight. Both trade leather. Ellenberger gets a double leg and knocks some sense to the returning UFC fighter. Hieron sweeps and land a few nice shots of his own. Hieron goes for an armbar. HOLY $%&@!!! Jay Hieron taps out Jake Ellenberger!!! Welcome back to the UFC! Just before he talks with Rogan, his corner slips a wreath around his neck. Well, can’t say I saw that one coming.

Winner: Jay Hieron, 1:07 of round 1, submission due to armbar.

Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Jon “Bones” Jones defends his UFC Light heavyweight title for the first time since driving drunk and crashing his Bentley against 40 year old TRT king, Dan “Hendo” Henderson. If Henderson wins, does that make him the light heavyweight GOAT?

Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson

Ahh yes, the extended fight preview to make up for the quick finishes. Now is the time to grab a quick snack or hit the can. You won’t want to miss anything after Buffer starts screaming.

Jones looks nervous, but he always does (I think so, anyway) and he always wins. Henderson looks happy to have a chance to finally win that elusive UFC gold. No matter the outcome, Hendo is a legend and has his spot reserved in the UFC Hall of Fame.

Round 1: Let’s do this! Jones runs across the cage and lands a flying knee. Shoots for a takedown, but Hendo’s wrestling stuffs it almost immediately. Dan shoots and gets a takedown. Hendo can’t hold the young lion. Jones back on his feet but Dan is boxing him into the fence. Henderson trips him and moves into half guard. Jones eats a few punches but manages to escape. Henderson clinches and dirty boxes Jones. Jones drops levels and gets the takedown. Jones cant hold him. Hendo back up. Jones lands a spinning back fist that cuts the former PRIDE champ. End of round 1.

Round 2: Jones using his reach quite well. Lighting up Hendo. Now they’re both trading leather. Hendo bloodies Jones. Never saw this before! Henderson smells blood and gets the takedown. They scramble and both trade top position. Hendo gets full mount but seems too tired to do anything with it. There we go, he’s dropping elbows now. I wonder if Jones even knew he could bleed? Henderson peppers him with pillow punches until the horn. Shouldn’t the ref have stood them up?

Round 3: Dan “waists” no time trying to get the champ to the ground. Jones on his back, Hendo in half guard, a few strikes getting through. Bones blocking most. Henderson finds an opening and rocks Jones. Quickly recovers and back on the feet, Jones is truly being tested for the first time in his pro career. Henderson clinches and tosses him to the mat. Side control and H Bombs are firing. Herb Dean calling for the champ to protect himself . Hendo continues the onslaught. That’s it! We have a new champion! Dan Henderson has now won the most prized crown in all of combat sports: the UFC championship! The crowd is nucking futs. They’ve just witnessed history. Buffer seems ultra exited to declare Henderson the new champ.

Winner: Dan Henderson, 3:10 of round 3, TKO

Henderson says he’s not done fighting yet, but admits it won’t be too long before he hands up the gloves and puts his teeth back in. As all champions should, Henderson tells Rogan that he’ll face whomever Joe Silva and Dana White put in front of him. He then thanks his fans, the UFC, and his sponsors. Surprisingly, no mention of TRT.

Jones apologizes for his performance and apologizes to the fans and the UFC. Joe asks him what’s next and he says he’ll head back to Jackson’s and watch the tape to see what went wrong. Says he’ll be back stronger than ever, and he too, will face anyone they put in the cage with him, unless, you know, it’s on short notice.

End-of-night bonuses:

Submission of the Night: Jay Hieron

KO of the Night: Dennis Hallman

Fight of the Night: John Lineker vs. Yasuhiro Urishitani

Wow , judging by all this week articles
I knew bones would lose
Mr_Misanthropy- September 2, 2012 at 2:21 pm
Hey... hey you guys... are you in there? I'm- I'm getting a little worried... you haven't eaten for three days and you've been watching re-run fight footage in your underwear. Look all this Jack Daniels and NyQuil is going to catch up with you here at some point. Can we at least take the aluminum foil off the windows?
The12ozCurls- September 2, 2012 at 10:24 am
How in SAM HELL did I miss this live-blogging session? God dammit! This was the best PPV ever though. At least I don't feel like I spent too much money.
macreadysshack- September 2, 2012 at 7:48 am
Is it wrong that this reminded me of nothing more than beating off to a Penthouse Forum as a teenager? This is some weird shit right here. Sure, it was a fun idea and execution wasn't bad but, unless I'm 13 and it's got unexpected situational sex in it, bleh or meh or howeva the cool kids are expressing apathy these days.
Alan K- September 2, 2012 at 7:31 am
Hell of a night. BItchassness certainly delivered.
Dizzylittlelord- September 2, 2012 at 6:04 am
hendersons wrestling really isnt that great, yes Olympics blah blah blah but that was 15 years ago. mvan got humped by jake shields for christ sake. if youd said jones is destroying him o wait here comes an h bomb new champ it might be believable
hitekredneck- September 2, 2012 at 5:20 am
quick, somebody gimme a stream!!!
RearNakedSpoon- September 2, 2012 at 4:03 am
Bravo CP, pure genius.
Dmonicideals- September 1, 2012 at 11:30 pm
It's good Hendo won in Fantasyland, because he missed his chance to get fucked by JBJ in real life. Eat it up haters, Jones ain't going nowhere for a LONG time.
Fletch the V Stretch- September 3, 2012 at 5:25 am
You're right. He will most likely be around for a LONG time. That surely will give him plenty of time to continue showing him true self and get some more fans.
therail- September 1, 2012 at 10:10 pm
I call bullshit. Can't be a real ppv liveblog without the server going out mid recap. Then whatever random hack cp blindly choose to liveblog, where the only real job requirement is to be lonely on a Saturday night and have an Internet connection, bitches that his Internet went down.

Otherwise good shit.
RwilsonR- September 1, 2012 at 9:27 pm
Did anyone catch the post-fight presser? I guess Jones had a pre-existing injury coming into this fight that made it hard to train for the last few days. Something about a deep cut between his legs that had a steady bleed, and resulted in a lot of muscle cramps.
RwilsonR- September 1, 2012 at 9:20 pm
Pretty sick main card! Siver's pretty badass to fight through a cut like that. It may not have quite been goat's vagina territory, but it certainly looked about the Bones' pussy sized.
jimbonics- September 1, 2012 at 8:24 pm
Best UFC in a long time.
eselockster- September 1, 2012 at 8:06 pm
Make fake post fight conference where Dana white slaps and kisses Jones godfather 2,style and kicks him out of Ufc
ksgbobo- September 1, 2012 at 7:57 pm
I knew it. Hendo is the man! Let the hatred begin in regards to Jon "Soft Bones" Jones. Well, more hatred
NomadRip- September 1, 2012 at 7:57 pm
G.O.A.T.!!! Go Hendo! Garbage ass prelims, but the main card actually made up for it this time.
NomadRip- September 1, 2012 at 7:52 pm
I hope Hendo didn't blow his wad when he was on top of Bones.
angry little feet- September 1, 2012 at 7:48 pm
I'm fairly certain that DFW is acutely aware that this card isn't actually taking place.
BHOP- September 1, 2012 at 7:43 pm
FFS guys, you already got in trouble for shit like this. Atleast make it more clear that this liveblog is bullshit! Have you not learned already that just because it's obvious to you that you're dicking around doesn't mean it's obvious to everyone else (ie. Dana White)?
Nippletwist- September 1, 2012 at 7:34 pm
i predict on his way to the ring hendo blows out his knee and is unable to fight. and to everyones astonishment chael sonnen descends from the ceiling of the arena dressed as a super hero! but then something goes terribly wrong and he falls and plummets to his death! jones no longer has an opponent! in the aftermath jones is considered responsible for ruining the main event. mma fans and media alike call jones a complete pussy and declare chael sonnen the greatest fighter who ever lived.
Grandmas Nutmeg- September 1, 2012 at 8:28 pm
I figure Chael has been training on the apparatus a little more than you give him credit for, at least let him fall to his death on top of Jones and posthumously win the LHW belt.
Nippletwist- September 1, 2012 at 11:51 pm
oh fuck man that is a way cooler idea
ksgbobo- September 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm
Yes, BG! Thank you, sir!
ksgbobo- September 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm
Yagin is going to win since he came out to Kid Rock. You watch!
bgoldstein- September 1, 2012 at 7:23 pm
@ksgbobo : I just told Moles to inform us of that important information for Siver/Yagin. Happy?
angry little feet- September 1, 2012 at 7:32 pm
You know for the longest time I was convinced that you didn't actually exist anymore and were just some animatronic thing the guys trotted out every once in a while to keep up appearances. Like those creepy bastards at chuck E cheese.
NomadRip- September 1, 2012 at 7:16 pm
It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye.
NomadRip- September 1, 2012 at 7:15 pm
The prelims are showing on Facebook, right? I've been having trouble finding them :-D
