UFC 122 slated for Germany, Belfort vs. Leben rumored

source: mmajunkie.com

Ultimate Fighting Championship fans will get two free events in one month's time.

Company officials previously announced that October's UFC 120 event in London will air via same-day delay on Spike TV, and sources close to the organization told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that November's UFC 122 event also is expected to air on the cable station.

Although not officially announced, UFC 122 takes place Nov. 13 at Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany.

The event is expected to air via a six-hour delay on Spike TV.

UFC 122, which takes place a week before a tentatively scheduled UFC 123 pay-per-view event, marks the UFC's return to Germany, which hosted its first show – UFC 99 with a Rich Franklin vs. Wanderlei Silva headliner – in June 2009. Despite some resistance from the German media that resulted in a ban on minors from attending the show, UFC president Dana White vowed the organization would return to and continue its expansion in the European country.

That would be a horrible match up, leben has risen fast, but he still has a fight or so before he is at Belforts level, if anything they should have had belfort fight marquardt or okami, then have bisping fight belcher, damien fight palhares or okami, and leben fight whoever got injured lol. But he should probably wait for wanderlei, that fight is a must see. The UFC is misusing their MW again, no wonder Anderson has no interesting competitors.

Nothing in that article that you linked supported your claim of this possible match up. Someone please stop this guy from creating threads.

Free MMA is always good and I've been saying for awhile that Belfort needs to win another fight before fighting for the title. So hopefully all this ends up being true.

Hope this isn't true. I want to see Belfort fighting Silva asap.
