Speculation has been running rampant since last night in regards to possible changes to UFC 151, and it appears that we'll finally get our answer in under 90 minutes. Dana White is about to make an announcement regarding the event, as per a UFC press release sent out minutes ago:

The Ultimate Fighting Championship® organization will host a media conference call today, Thursday, August 23, 2012 at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT for a special announcement by UFC® President Dana White regarding the upcoming UFC® 151: JONES vs. HENDERSON event scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 1.

Immediately following the announcement, Dana White will be available for questions from media on the call.

A lot of the speculation has been focused on the main event title bout between UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and challenger Dan Henderson, but anything is possible at this point. This media call should certainly be interesting. Bloody Elbow will bring you live coverage.
