If Nate Quarry couldn't pull it off, then there is now way Chris Leban can. Lets face it, Quarry is a lot better than Leban!

Rich, no doubt in my mind!

Romans 14:11-12... 11It is written: " 'As surely as I live, says the Lord ' every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' " 12So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God. May God Bless us

RIP Leben

Leben will get wrecked, he's not even close to being ready for Franklin IMHO!

Yeah, that's a great idea. If Swick can get passed Loiseau, then have them set up their rematch (which I think is quite anticipated by a lot of fans) in December.

I personally think that is a good choice, winner of Swick/Loiseau. I really don't think Leben can go with Rich Franklin, though crazier things have happened. I feel that Leben will wind up leaving the UFC after another year or so. Just a feeling.

Death to Leben
Leben<Franklin. Leben isn't that good and would get destroyed similar to the silva fight

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.

Leben is a wild, uncautious striker. He's not ready for Franklin for sure.

This is a joke right?

This fight will never happen. The only way Leben will ever get a title shot is if Silva beats Franklin and Leben beats an average opponent to have "The rematch that everyone has been waiting for"...the "retribution".

And his striking is far from top notch, swinging your arms around with your eyes closed is not top notch. Yes he has a lot of power, but a lot of guys have a lot of power, and they arent considered top notch strikers. His striking is sloppy, and any good striker will get through them and knock him out (aka Silva).
