Nate Quarry To Replace Chris Leben?

Found this on the web. It sounds like a suitable replacement. It should be a war. I'm taking Quarry.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Will Quarry step in for Leben......

MMARated.com is reporting that Nate Quarry has been mentioned as a possible replacement for Chris Leben for his fight against Michael Bisping at UFC 85 in June. Leben was sentenced to 35 days in jail, but will be released on May 27th due to a credit for time he already served. However, that won't give him enough preparation time for his fight against Bisping, therefore he has been pulled from the fight.

Nate Quarry just fought Kalib Starnes in a very controversial fight at UFC 83 which saw Starnes "running away" from Quarry the majority of the fight. 411mania will be sure to keep you updated on the latest changes for UFC 85.

I love Quarry but I'd take Bisping and I'll take any bet anyone brings to the table.

I had Leben over Bisping, but Nate makes it little bit more close for me. Bisping is the right kind of guy for Quarry though being quick and aggressive and they should be able to trade when they choose, but I see that being the very reason Quarry gets tko'd.

I need some influence from our members. I'm still hoping they hold off this fight so we can see Bisping/Leben though.

I'm mixed on this fight definitely, but I'm undoubtedly rooting for Quarry.

I think Quarry wins this one. I would give Bisping the win over Leben but I think Quarry would give Bisping a lot more problems.

I don't see Bisping winning this fight. Nate has a solid, and I mean SOLID chin and has never been submitted. Bisping just doesn't have the power to KO Nate like Franklin did and let's be honest here, Bisping's chin isn't that good. He recovers quickly, but Nate throws HAMMERS.

Nate by 2nd round TKO.

This is a great replacement and I'm definitely more excited about this fight than the Leben fight. I think it's a good test for both guys but I'll go with Quarry on it.
