Agreed. Leben is an awful striker...

I agree about Vitor. But I think the fight would work better as a co-main event. Would be nice if we could get Barao vs McDonald on the same card.

EDIT: I didn't see that part about the card(Brazil) being on FUEL or FX, I thought it was a PPV?

Nope, no January PPV(dunno why), Aldo/Edgar headlines 156 on Super Bowl weekend. MMAJunkie said this will probably be an FX or FUEL card.

As MMAjunkie.com first reported, the UFC will return to Brazil for the Jan. 19 event, though a host city hasn't been determined. The event, which won't air on pay-per-view, is expected to be a UFC on FUEL TV or UFC on FX offering.

Of course, this could end up being something like Bigfoot/Struve, which isn't a bad fight itself and Belfort/Bisping could go to 156.

Well the Super Bowl weekend is always a massive card. So IMO Bisping-Vitor makes more sense on that card. They need to stack the crap out of that card, especially since odds are these days atleast 1 of the fights will fall through due to injury.
Hunt was shooting for an early 2013 return from his injury. Maybe we can get Hunt vs Bigfoot on that card(Brazil)?

Hasn't really saved him his last few fights. Of course, it doesn't help that he sticks it out there for anyone and everyone to hit.

I love this match up and I am with the majority - if Bisping wins he should get a shot. Very tough match up for Bipsing.

My guess is that in the four weeks of January one is for the TUF Jones/Sonnen, one is for the FX and the third should be for a stacked Strikeforce card (Larkin/Rockhold, Cormier/Mir, Melendez/Healy, Rousey/?????).

Yeah if I was a Bisping fan I wouldn't be feeling too good about this one, he's been rocked by everyone with decent power he's fought since 2009. If Vitor stuns him I don't see him getting let off the hook.

Even old man Rivera touched his chin, if Bisping wins he'll be right up there with Weidman as far as I'm concerned because this is quite the task for him.
