Uriah Hall is in an absolute must win situation when he takes on UFC veteran Chris Leben on December 28th. Hall has looked nothing like the killer we saw on the show in his last two fights and Dana vocalized his frustration with Uriah’s most recent performances. Hall managed to get one more shot to prove that he belongs in the UFC. No one is questioning his physical gifts...

Chris Leben has a big fight coming up at UFC 168 against Uriah Hall and without a doubt he is taking it seriously. Both guys are at risk of losing their job if they have a poor performance on December 28th but Dana has said time and time again how much he likes Chris, and that is a pretty good guy to have on your side in this sport.

Great action shot during sparring from Uriah Hall
Chris Leben will be fighting Uriah Hall soon which based on recent history would suggest that is a fight both men will be trying to win to keep their roster spot in the UFC. Leben has certainly been in the game a whole lot longer than Hall and many can argue he should be “tenured” in because of the exciting bouts he has had in the past but the boss, Dana White seems to be on...

Andrew Craig looked great in his latest victory over UFC veteran Chris Leben. The young Texas fighter is back in the gym sparring with teammates only three and a half weeks after competing. Watch out for Craig because he is improving every time we see him in the Octagon and always delivers an exciting fight.

Is this the beginning of the end for Ultimate Fighter almunus, Chris Leben? Tonight, Leben gets yet another chance to redeem himself as he takes on up-and-comer Andrew Craig at UFC 162.
Three years ago, Leben was in a very similar predicament to his current situation. He was riding a two fight losing streak, as he is now, before bouncing back with three impressive wins including a...
UFC 162 comes to you live on Pay Per View from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event of the evening pound-for-pound kingpin Anderson “The Spider” Silva puts his Middleweight title on the line against undefeated challenger Chris Weidman.
Chris Leben lost his last fight inside the Octagon, a listless performance against promotional newcomer Derek Brunson in the first fight of the UFC 155 main card.
That's the result that appears on his record, the one that reads 22-9 overall, and 12-8 in the UFC since breaking into the organization as a member of the inaugural cast on The Ultimate Fighter.

Nine years after The Ultimate Fighter season 1, we are still hearing about the potential for a Chris Leben/Josh Koscheck catchweight match. You know what? I’m still kind of not sick of hearing about it. I just recently rewateched TUF 1, and it’s obvious the ingredient we’ve been missing for the last 15 or so seasons has been Chris Leben. They should just put him on every season...
After what Anderson Silva did to Leben in their bout back in 2006 not sure it is possible for him to think anyone could be better.

It seems like a ton of fighters are claiming they are finding out news that pertains to themselves over the internet rather than being contacted by the UFC. Still losing the Tate fight was big for Carmouche as a win over Miesha would have immediately put her right back in title contention. Now she will have to work her way back by first defeating Jessica Andrade on UFC on FOX...
Hard not to like Chris Leben as every time he goes out there he fights his heart out. Him and Andrew Craig should put on a very exciting fight at UFC 162, and one that we are really looking forward to. Thanks to Fight Magazine for the interview.
