UFC 151 should be taking place this Saturday night in Las Vegas just as Zuffa, its fighters and its fans had planned.

But Dan Henderson injured his knee, Jon Jones turned down a fight against replacement Chael Sonnen on 10 days' notice and UFC canceled the entire card for the first time since Zuffa bought the company in 2001.

So where does that leave the 22 fighters on that non-existent card? Pretty much all over the place. Here is a look at where those fights and fighters have wound up.
