Will Koscheck or Leben ever get a ppv?

I have noticed that Josh Koscheck and Chris Leben have been fighting in the UFC since early 2005 and I was wondering why neither of them has ever got a fight at a ppv? They have posted UFC records of 6-1(Leben) and 5-1(Koscheck) and Dana white has only gave them fights at ultimate fight night. I was just wondering if anyone else thought this was kinda stupid.

Maybe Dana White is saving them up for a title fight. Seems like he places worse fighters and newcomers in PPV matches to go with the main attractions. I guess it makes sense since it balances out the event.

I'll say this about Koscheck, in about 2-3 years, he'll be either WW champion or challenging for the championship on PPV.

Leben is an UFN lifer. His sloppy striking style matches up well for free TV. I even see Swick vs Leben 2 to be an UFN main event, instead of an actual PPV fight.

Are you kidding me? how about you check your facts before you say somethin like that. Kos was not on 63, he may have been at 63 but not as a fighter.
