Leben Hall seems like a lot of fun to me. It's like some great bad kungfu movie. Evil master Dana has dispatched his technically sound and sadistically brutal henchman to dispose of the sweet talented kid.

...will Uriah find his balls before leben takes them forever??

I say yes and he beats Leben like nobody but Silva and Stann have done before.

Hall just doesn't look good when he is being pressured imo.

Leben vs. Hall should be a loser leaves town match, but I could see Leben getting another chance because of his long history in the UFC. It's a toss up for me. They both have looked bad in their last few outings. A lot of pressure should be on them to impress. I'm wondering if Hall will use his wrestling at all.

Siyar vs. Howard should be lots of fun. Siyar hits hard, but Howard has a great chin. I'm looking forward to that fight.

Hall is almost a 3 to 1 favorite which I think is ridiculous. It if funny people are still waiting on Hall with such suspense because he won a couple of TUF fights. Has anyone ever got more credit for winning fights in the house than Hall?? He is 7-4 and has beat no one good yet.

Perhaps it all comes together. Leban looked to be in good shape though. I think Leban could actually wrestle Hall if he puts his ego aside. I think Leban is experienced enough to not sit at the end of kicks all night. He will be in Hall's face, and Hall doesn't do well with that sort of thing.

Hall is like 29. He isn't some kid who hasn't had time to figure it out yet. Not sure what people are waiting for.

^He showed the killer instinct, so it's not like we're waiting for something new.

Can someone tell me what time this is kicking off? Last few events I missed the first fight or two.

Yeah, worst thing is I have martial arts at 11am every Saturday, so I ALWAYS gas out late in the fight. See what I did there? Annnnyways, tonight I plan on ordering in the ridiculously big pizza at 2am, and getting wasted as early as possible. Shit, wait it's 7, time to drink.
