Remember the beef between them (and by that I mean Kos being a dick) on TUF?!?

I say Leben KOs him this time 'round.
Yes, Leben was an innocent victim on that show.

Ahhhhhhh Koscheck vs Leben is a great matchup, although maybe a step back for Leben. Lets be honest though, he's in no rush for a title shot, he's much better off taking fun fights like this.

I wonder who else it could be?

Haven't seen that season of TUF for quite a while now, just remember Kos wetting Leben at night with the hose and Bobby Southworth calling Leben a "fatherless bastard".

What did Leben do to deserve the treatment? I'm genuinely curious lol refresh my memory.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

Koscheck vs Leben would be awesome. Both fighters have also improved greatly since TUF 1.

Leben was the trailor park trash type just like Joonie Browning. Lack of respect is what he did to deserve it and then cried when they 'picked on him'. Although Southworth and Kos were a bit irritating the way they went about their 'teaming up'. Pretty childish and disrespectful house that season.

Kos had absoultely nothing but wrestling and beat Leben at 185. Think he takes Leben down and does the same to him again. If he can pretty much match GSP wrestling at 170 (in his last outing) he isn't having problems taking down Leben.

Well, Leben and Kos already fought in TUF and Koscheck kept him down for two rounds for the win (lay'n'pray eh?), but this time Koscheck has more faith in his stand up and Leben has really improved his bjj. A match (or two, hey I think it'll be that close) would be great for the fans because, honestly, both of these guys are light years away from a title shot.

Damn Chael would be fun. In fact everybody wants a piece of Chael or Bisping.

How in the world is Bonnar gonna make it to 185 or can he.

Just throw him against Anderson except Anderson can only fight with his left arm. Anderson jabs away for the first round sealing up his eye. Anderson throws a fake left kick and goes in with a left elbow uppercut down the middle for the KO. Something GSP couldn't do.

There's a few people I enjoy seeing getting beat up. Koscheck is #1 followed by Chael, Rashad, Brock, Fitch, and for completely different reasons, Bonnar (only cuz he gets nutty), and Leben (unleashes the zombie mode).

lol, Kos submission defence would be lightyears ahead of what Lebens BJJ has come.

Remember, Leben was already 'experienced' in the house, Kos was still as good as a raw wrestler.

Lebens stand-up wouldn't make a diff, he will be put on his back and we will have 3 rounds of lay n pray this time instead of 2.

Good fight for the pre-match hype, but sh*t fight.

Let's move on and see a fight against his new arch nemesis and we all know who that is!

If that fight does happen I would be pulling for the Crippler, however I think Kos could take Leben down, control him, and not get submitted.That is assuming he fights smart, and does not try to go toe to toe.That would piss the fans off, but really his only chance.With all the bad blood between these two it would be hard for Koscheck to employ that kind of gameplan.

I hope Bonnar can crop down to MW. I doubt it, but thats the fight he is talking about.
