Chris Leben (pictured) will most likely be fighting for his big league life at UFC 162. On this week’s edition of FUEL TV’s “UFC Tonight,” it was announced Leben will battle Andrew Craig in the July 6 event. Leben has dropped two of his last three scraps, including two straight. “The Ultimate Fighter 1″ contestant performed horribly in his last outing against Derek Brunson, and UFC president Dana White took notice. Considering Leben has been suspended twice for performance-enhancing drugs, his apparent decline and the UFC’s quick firing trigger finger, this could very well be do or die for “The Crippler.” Craig, meanwhile, was perfect through his first eight professional bouts before losing to Ronny Markes in his last foray. The 27-year-old is 2-1 inside the Octagon. MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the festivities. Here is the show’s current lineup: Seth Baczynski vs. Brian Melancon Chris Leben vs. Andrew Craig Mark Munoz vs. Tim Boetsch Roger Gracie vs. Tim Kennedy Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva (UFC middleweight champion)
