    Hughes and Alves…what? That's a great fight and I really didn't think Hughes would fight anyone but Serra. Maybe that loss to GSP motivated him to try for a comeback.

    Sack that! This Card is awesome now! Go BISPING! I like leben and I was hoping this match would happen. Gonna be a great fight – tuff to call. Time for Bisping to prove whether he's got a chin or not. If he beats Leben he'll get the recognition he wants… if not its back to the drawing board!

    I was soo pissed off about Chuck (especially cos I've got tickets) but the UFC has sorted out a great card as a replacement – I'm happy!

    Cheers Dana White!

    I hope Leben can take this fight. I like both of them, but I like Leben much better because he is always the underdog, but can usually pull through. I think if it ends up on the ground though, the ball is in bisping's court.

    Brandon, this is an old card. This isn't the right Bisping and Leben. This is before Leben got arrested.
