I don't know how well this fight matches up stylistically, but I'm excited to see more of Kalib Starnes. He was actually my favorite to win TUF3, but I was probably biased because he's Canadian.
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 dont care for either fighter either . i think that leben will stomp starnes . leben is just that much more experienced and well rounded . hope not though - i would want to see starnes knock lebens block off . . . . . . . .
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

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.
