This may end up being a pretty good fight. I wonder if this will be an undercard fight.
I actually thought Starnes was going to win TUF 3 as well.

Starnes is a really solid fighter, who is really good on the ground.

i picture starnes takin leben down at will and the fight being a stand-still (or a lay-still if you will) and the reff standing the fight up a few times. i think leben will catch starnes after one of the stand ups and win via TKO

i like Kalib and i was hoping he would win TUF....i hate leben so im hoping he gets his ass kicked. In the near future UFC should have Kalib and Kendall fight again, that would be good.

like most other ppl i dislike leben and I cannot begin to express the joy i had when he fought silva. I think starnes has a good chance at beating leben only because of his strong takedown ability and leben's poor takedown defense. Leben's ground game isnt horrible but starnes is far better. If leben has been working TD defence then i expect this fight to go to him because he has a clear advantage standing.

Favorite Fighters
Anderson Silva (MW)
Randy Couture (HW)
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (LHW)
Roger Huerta (LW)
Karo Parisyan (WW)
