According to MMAJunkie, the UFC has formally applied to hold UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
The UFC’s request is on the docket for the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s scheduled meeting this Thursday. The event is targeted for September 1.
In the main event, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will take on MMA legend Dan Henderson in his fourth title defense of what has been a remarkable title run, especially for a 24-year-old.
Riding a four-fight winning streak, Henderson was awarded the shot after waging war with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 139 this past November and taking home a unanimous decision win.
The only other bout currently rumored for the event is a featherweight contest between Dennis Siver and Eddie Yagin.
