I have noticed that Josh Koscheck and Chris Leben have been fighting in the UFC since early 2005 and I was wondering why neither of them has ever got a fight at a ppv? They have posted UFC records of 6-1(Leben) and 5-1(Koscheck) and Dana white has only gave them fights at ultimate fight night. I was just wondering if anyone else thought this was kinda stupid.

Maybe Dana White is saving them up for a title fight. Seems like he places worse fighters and newcomers in PPV matches to go with the main attractions. I guess it makes sense since it balances out the event.

I'll say this about Koscheck, in about 2-3 years, he'll be either WW champion or challenging for the championship on PPV.

Leben is an UFN lifer. His sloppy striking style matches up well for free TV. I even see Swick vs Leben 2 to be an UFN main event, instead of an actual PPV fight.

Are you kidding me? how about you check your facts before you say somethin like that. Kos was not on 63, he may have been at 63 but not as a fighter.

they both will fight at a ppv eventually, and i agree with damone that KOS will be champ one day, Leben will never wear the belt but he'll give us some good fights over the years

I guess it would make for good buys for a Leben vs koscheck 2 for all those TUF fans but I do not want to see a ppv built up around them. And personally I do not think much of Koscheck... I think he's pretty damn boring and mainly just a good wrestler.

I also always thought that about him, but latly he has seemed to change for the better :)

Give it a couple more fights and I think he will become a good and very exciting fighter.

Koscheck used to be a one dimensional wrestler, but he's developed striking & good GnP. The guy will be deadly in about a year.
