Leben out of UFC 85...Surprised???

  1. Leben out of UFC 85...Surprised???

    From yahoo:

    Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter Chris “The Crippler” Leben turned himself in to Oregon authorities April 30 for a probation violation stemming from a previous DUI offense. Leben was sentenced to 35 days in jail at a hearing on Thursday, which effectively removes takes him out of his scheduled UFC 85 bout on June 7 with Michael “The Count” Bisping.

    The Leben-Bisping match was put together after former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell was forced out of the main event against The Ultimate Fighter 2 winner Rashad Evans. Liddell suffered a torn hamstring in training, causing him to withdraw from a bout due to injury for the first time in his career.

    Evans was a replacement for the injured Pride Fighting Championships 2005 Middleweight Grand Prix champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

    Although Leben will not make the trip to England, MMAWeekly.com sources indicate that the UFC is expected to find a replacement to face the popular British fighter, Bisping, on the UFC 85 fight card in London.

    No comment has been forthcoming from the UFC, but Bisping’s new opponent is expected to be announced soon.

  2. Bisping is going to be fighting Jason Day at UFC 85.
