Chris Leben was sentenced today to 35 days in jail after turning himself in on a probation violation. He will be released on 5/27, because he is being given credit for days served, but this won’t leave him with any training time for a fight on 6/7 in London.
It has been confirmed with UFC the Michael Bisping vs. Chris Leben match is off. Joe Silva had already had a back-up plan in case Leben wasn’t able to do the fight. UFC expected Leben to be released today. At this point we can’t confirm a replacement.
Nate Quarry, who defeated Kalib Starnes on 4/19 in Montreal, was contacted, but he suffered an elbow injury in the fight and is out of the running.
