    Wandy out of UFC116 - Leben in.....

    Wandy has pulled out of UFC 116 due to a rib injury and Chris Leben has stepped in to face Akiyama.

    Big call from Leben, this will only be a 12 day layoff before the event. He was cleared by medical staff after his Aaron Simpson TKO on Saturday.

    Was really looking forward to Wandy v Sexyama, oh well. This may be a better second UFC fight for Sexy but Leben is 4-2 from his last 6 UFC outings.

    I dunno this will still be an interesting fight, I'm bummed because I wanted to see Wandy fight again.

    Oh well, hopefully he heals up quick.

    Leben-Akiyama will be a good fight, and, I agree, maybe a better matchup. But Leben is a poor substitute for Wand.

    Might still be entertaining, Leben is like a poor mans Wanderlei.

    Wanderlei is not some sort of commodity! He's got emotions. Just look at his face as a baby, heartwarming.

    My favourite incarnation of Wandy is him as a long haired teenager.

    Heh. And Leben was just telling that he's in no hurry at all to get the next fight. But who wouldn't take a co-main event spot, especially if their whole career has been mostly about gate keeping.

    Incidentally I'm not too disappointed, since I've always liked Leben.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.
