The UFC 152 main event between Jon Jones and Vitor Belfort happened only after UFC 151 was cancelled due to a Dan Henderson injury that caused the entire event to be put on the shelf.

Coming in on just three-weeks notice, Vitor Belfort, made a promise to the fans and his employers that he would move up in weight and face the UFC’s light-heavyweight champion.

He upheld his end of the deal, even though, just weeks before the fight he broke his hand in training.
