    great another card like UFC 85. Well tleast this one is free. I think it is pathetic that the UFC cant put good cards together even if it is just to fill the Spiketv agreement deal they having goijng on. They could atleast put a good fight card together instead of putting on all the people that will never be contenders and one fight that is ok at best in Leben v. Bisping. Dont get me wrong this fight could be great and should be but is it really gonna change anything? not really.

    i think bisping will KO leben. diego sanchez vs thiago alves will be a very good fight. i am hoping diego will meditate harder for this fight and pull off the victory.

    steve seems to be a whiny little girl. I am sure for someone who doesn't fight, it's really easy to speculate what makes a good fight vs a great one. Anyone who fights at this level has arrived and wannabe's sit back and complain about awesome match-ups, free or otherwise. I am sure you can find some kleanex here on the internet while you type stupid comments.

    Mateo how the fuck would u know if im a fighter or not? There are people in the UFC that I could beat up. Thats not being cocky but it is a fact. Those guys dont belong in the UFC. And those are the guys that eventually fill these types of cards before getting released and going to the smaller shows. So dont talk shit about what you dont know. LOL

    Steve, calm down. You are so quick to swear and say you can beat up fighters. I think both fights will be good. I hope Leben wins, but I think he will have to work HARD to get it. He has the heart for it. Alves just TKO'd and stopped the takedowns of someone who used to be one of the greatest welterwights. I would say he belongs here.
