Why is Leben goin for the Rob Schneider look? Haha on www.ufc.com he looks just like him in the interview section growin his mini-fro out. I say Bisping takes this one fairly easy, much faster and more explosive. I think leben is more powerful 1 punch KO power but I see him getting worked...and for the record I do not like Bisping

I don't understand. Why Bisping needs to fight Henderson before getting a shot at Silva? I like Danny but I rather see someone else challenge Silva before he retires.

So where are all the promo's for UFC 89. I always see commercials for Silva vs Cote, but I have yet to see one on Spike for Bisping vs Leben. I would think they would wanna hype up a card like this as much as possible. It's not loaded with its biggest stars so it needs to promote a little more

Bisping is the new direction for the UFC abroad, it makes since to headline Bisping and start putting him in a position to represent the UFC accordingly. It makes perfect sense to me, besides, these guys have paid their dues and deserve to be headliners for a night and showcase their skills.

Give Bisbing his Due!

As far as many are concerned, Rashed Evans and Bisbing tied.

When in the world are they going to let Michael Bisbing have some good fights?

When are they going to give him his big shot? How many people does he have to beat?

Dude I like Bisping and hate Rashad but he got owned in that fight I was very surprised it was a split decision.

It was a blessing in disguise though as Bisping at MW looks so much better than he did a LW so much faster with crisper movement.

I wouldn't really say he got owned in the Rashad fight. He did lose, no doubt, and why that was a split I'll never know, but Bisping showed some solid takedown defense and didn't take a boatload of damage. Jason Tan got owned against Dong Hyun Kim. Bisping didn't get owned against Rashad.

But I do agree that it was a blessing in disguise. Bisping looks so much better at MW.
