    Oh man im getting sick of Bisping...please make him fight at 205 and give a legit contendor

    As for Leben..isnt he a proven jobber by now? Is he just going to be a carear journeyman who keeps getting ppv fights cuz of his reality tv drama?

    ufc is a fucking show, when you start picking headliners based on who has got more market appeal over athletic credibility, you should just fucking stop putting on shows.

    business is business man, it's about making the most money not about making the best fights sometimes. and to the general public, these guys have more public exposure than some other fighters.

    Plus the more shows they put on the elite will be used more and hence need recoverytime, so you wont have all the elite fighters ready. Need to make some new stars.

    you can't deny it'll be an exciting fight. they're both gonna stand infront of each other and slug it out and someone's gonna get knocked out. i wouldn't say it's a great main event but it sure will be entertaining.

    Not a great main event but it will be great to watch bisping get his ass kicked.

    im telling you one of two things is going to happens. Bisping is going to win by decision and every one is going to be pissed because it was a long boring match or bisping is going to be owning the crap out of leben and then out of no where leben will drop the hay maker from hell

    he's 18 - 4 which is a pretty good record. The reason hes been able to do that is because he has knock out power. Its a dangerous thing. He is the best example of "a punchers chance". He has beat a lot of guys that he shouldnt have beat because he has that knock out power to level the playing field. Guys like him have a lot of holes in their game and in all honesty arent that good but because they have knock out power it compensates for that. He can end a fight at any given time he just needs the one good hit to stun the person and he has the instict to finish the fight. Case and point terry martin.

    In all honesty terry martin should have won that fight. What makes it worse is that chris leben has a rock hard chin so that gives him more of an oppertunity to pull off what he can do. It also makes it so he can take more chances then other fighters. Also the way he fights messes with other fighters game plans. He likes to brawl and its very easy to get caught up in a brawl with a brawler if you dont have your mind in the right place.

    Thats what happened to alessio sakara. He should have won his fight with leben but he got caught up in the brawl when shouldnt have because he has much better striking then chris leben. So he got caught up in the brawl and lost because of it. Lebens chin held tough and the knock out power didnt fail him that night. Hes a tough fight for guys that focus to much of their energy in grappeling because he can catch them with the knock out power. Hes even more dangerous against strikers because he can catch them with the suprise ko.

    The only way to beat chris leben is to completely out shine him in one area and not fight his fight. If you can do that you can beat him. Anderson silva is well anderson silva and completely out shined him with his technical fighting he didnt get caught up in a brawl and beat the crap out of leben. Jason mcdonald and kalib starnes both knew what they had to do and they kept the fight on the ground where he isnt dangerous at all and kept the fight right there.

    Kalib being able to get a decision and mcdonald a submision. It will be an interesting fight to say the least. I think this fight might actually be worth it to watch just because people will be curious to see how it goes. The fight depends more on bisping then leben. Because leben is going to go out there and do his thing as he always does but bispings game plan is what will either make or break him. Hes pretty a pretty well rounded fighter.

    If he decides to take it to the ground he could easily win this fight and beat chris leben. If he tries to stand and trade with him then he will be putting himself in a bad position. I think Bisping has a better striking game then leben but that knock out power is what will catch him.
