Can someone tell me what time this is kicking off? Last few events I missed the first fight or two.
Yea vs. guys who were clearly afraid of him in a TUF house. Tad different than UFC fighters on the big stage. Bubba flat out didn't want to fight him. Pretty easy to prey on guys who are weaker than you/afraid of you.

Uriah lost all his juice. Kelvin wasn't afraid of him at all, and he took it to Hall. Those TUF rejects didn't take it to him at all.

Yeah, Hall being a 3 to 1 favorite is laughable. The thing is though, Howard beat him. If Leben fought Howard right now instead of Uriah, would Howard be a 3 to 1 favorite as well?

People need to forget about Hall's TUF days. It's time to move on. That being said, I hope he does win. It's still a toss up to me. Leben has the aggressive style to give him fits, but he has looked awful lately as well.

Top 3 Favorite Fighters
1. Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell
2. Glover Teixeira
3. Demian Maia

Josh Salmon literally would have pissed in the ring if he had to fight Hall in TUF.

I thought it was weird for Hall to be a big favorite too but then I realized that Leben hasn't won a fight in 2 1/2 years. I barely know who the last 2 guys that beat him are.

Regardless of whether Hall is this or that or not, I never miss a chance to bet and cheer against Leben.

I cant remember who it was against, but he took on a dude on the main card Dana White publically apologized to Joe Silva for insisting that was the better fight for the main.
