In a do-over of UFC 151, a card that was cancelled back in 2012, Jon Jones and Dan Henderson will have a new shot at fighting one another, but under different rules. The two UFC light heavyweights will meet in no-gi BJJ as part of Submission Underground 2, a professional BJJ event organized by Bellator’s Chael Sonnen.

The event is scheduled for Dec. 10 in Oregon. The co-main even will see former UFC champion Miesha Tate grapple it out with Jessica Eye, who is also in the UFC.

Jones, who is suspended from MMA until next year by the USADA, recently fought in no-gi BJJ and did well. Hendo was a strong competitive wrestler before going into MMA, but has only ever subbed two opponents in his 47 MMA bouts.
