    Much improved fight. I know Brunson got iced vs Jacare but he still has a lot of promise and I thought he beat Kendall Grove.

    Good for Derek after not getting his shot on TUF, hope he gets the win.

    I wonder if this means Strikeforce fighters are now able to make the transition?

    Showtime wouldn't let Brunson fight on tuf. So something must of changed.

    Derek Brunson is a good dude and has promise. I do not like Leben because he beat Akiyama.

    I agree, I'm glad the UFC is giving him a chance!

    Damn, wish they would have done Leben vs. Cote since Sakara just pulled out of that bout

    lol Vemola sucks. I love that people even complain when an injury replacement makes a card better.

    yeah like 7 or 8 years ago..I wouldn't mind seeing them throw down again.


    but I did say scratch it as I had a brain fart and realized Cote just fought.

    Now Vemola can take his time off to drop to welterweight! :icon_lol:

    Seriously though, Leben by KO.

    Hopefully Leben starches him. Brunson could UD 30-27 though.

    Vemola might not be at the top of the division, but he doesn't "suck". He's an entertaining fighter and I was looking forward to seeing him fight Leben.

    I'm surprised UFC picked him up.
    He isn't UFC caliber.
