All in all a pretty good card.

The main event I cannot get over. I bet on Bisping to win this fight. But I gave it to leben 29 - 28. No one out there is so biased that they could deny Leben round 3. I think two of the judges gave all rounds to bisping.

Leben was more aggressive, complete control of the octagon, stuffing 2 take downs in the first round and others in the second, stand up was pretty even throughout. Ha im just going to through this out there, sure I bet on bisping and I got paid but I gave fight to leben easy. I got up to get a beer and said I just lost money or these judges are biased as shit.

Awell neither are on my top 10, but I gained a lot of respect of leben and equally lost respect for bisping. Which I didn't think was possible.

I pretty much agree with mattandbenny. I thought this was a good card, hella entertaining. I thought Davis looked fantastic, I was really very happy to see keith get the W over vera. I thought vera looked to be in excellent shape, and I thought he did better in this fight than his last, but I still don't see the fire. I am not going to make any negative statements about him at this time except to say that I would really like to see a more aggressive brandon vera.

I thought the main event was just great. I do agree that bisping won hands down. I enjoyed his energy, and his skills have clearly improved, but I would like to see some solid finishes from him in the future. I also gotta say that I LUB me some chris leben. The man has really grown on me, he's tough as nails, and bisping proved to be a bit too quick for him tonight. I thought the English crowd was great, I know they booed a bit during brandon/ jardine, but they gave keith some good applause in the end, and that makes me happy. I rate this card 4/5 or so, and thanks to the UFC for the free show tonight!

what? 2 outa 3 judges had Bisping winning every round,I swear they must be on crack. Me and my buddies were laughing at how much co#@suckin Rogan and his boy were talking about how great Bisping is, while he was taking shots and running away from Leben. When Bisping hit or even just missed with a punch they would say that he hit leben but when Leben would hit him they would hardly mention it. Not sayin Bisping didnt win just sayin Leben never had a chance to win a decision under any circumstance.

I agree that he is more accomplished than Kimbo in an academic sense, but he doesn't seem to apply that training.
He's got a ton of assets, very strong, very fast but he reminded me of Tyson when he started to decline; just looking for the one punch (or kick) KO. Sometimes you'll hit that home run but if you want any consistency you have to pace things, mix it up, keep a more constant attack rather than throwing two or three punches as hard as possible and then resting for a while doing nothing.

I see another great night of fights poisoned by the complete BS decisions they keep handing to the overrated joke of a fighter and kalib stanres-jujitsu black belt Michael "the crock" Bisping.

Even if you had a problem with who won that fight, at least the decision was a close one. I didn't see Brandon winning that fight. I had it 29-28 Jardine. "Fan" has nothing to do with "facts". Brandon got comprehensively beaten in a close be nonetheless decisive fight.
