    it would be a solid fight and make for a good cad but definetly not main event worthy.

    I like Bisping, but I hope Leben puts him down. Wasn't this the fight that was supposed to happen last event?

    I've got to give this to Bisping. He's in his hometown and I don't think he's going to make the mistake of getting into a slugfest with Leben. He'll probably throw a combo then back away from Lebens barrage.

    There's no way this is the main event. You don't put this fight at the top of the card. Don't get me wrong it probably will be a fantastic and entertaining fight, but there has to be a bigger fight or at least an equally anticipated fight on the card.

    My moneys on Leben. I think he can take anything Bisbing can deliver. Bisbing can't finish a fight and Leben is a finisher.

    It wont be a main event if Affliction kicks the UFC's ass on July 19th. If they do then Dana will bring out better cards for sure. But Tom's right, in the UK Bisping is the superstar.

    Bisping is wdefinetly the btter fighter but leben is scrappy and always dangerous even when he is hurt.Terry Martin found that out. But yeah this card is definetly not a main event s far as talent goes but with how popular bisping is in the UK it will sell tickets. He is the Chuck in USA or the Fedor in russia and or GSP in Canada. These fighters will always be in the mainevent or co main event as long as they fight in their hometown. Not that gsp or chuck wouldnt headline anyways.

    Go Affliction, they actually put a great card out. And also people were talking about how good the UFC is b/c of the fact that they could put this fight card together just shows how much better they could make the cards but do they no. We get to see the big stars fight 2 a year and the rest of the fights are mediocre and are televised.
