Amidst a flurry of activity this week, the Ultimate Fighting Championship on Friday officially confirmed the changing line-up for its return to London on June 7. UFC 85 underwent a hefty facelift this week, starting with a main event of Chuck Liddell vs. Rashad Evans and ended with a new main event of Matt Hughes vs. Thiago Alves.

Nice. I'm really glad they got this match added.

Whether you're a Leben fan or not, there's no doubt he brings it every fight. It takes a lot to bring Leben down, so if Bisping can score a finish in this fight, it should go a long way in raising his value as a contender.

If Leben wins, it's another quality win and hopefully keeps him in the UFC for years to come.

If Bisping wins this fight, they should put him right in there with a top 10 guy, to see how good he really is at that weight. I don't think Leben is a slouch by no means, but I wanna see how he fares against Hendo or Franklin.

I think Bisping will TKO Leben in rd 2 , maybe rd 1.

The guy is a real MW and he was very impressive in Montreal, i saw him live and the guy is no joke.

Bisping rd 2 TKO !!

wow this is crazy. this card went from being mediocre to one of the best cards ever. don't agree? look at this:

MAIN CARD:
alves/hughes
bisping/leben
vera/werdum
evans/irvin
davis/swick

...and the marquardt/leites fight is also pretty sweet. GOOD JOB MR. SILVA! the fans in england will surely not be disappointed now..

Im excited to see Matt Hughes fighting this soon after his loss to GSP. I'm looking for him to redeem himself... Should be a good one!

Hopefully Irvin KO Rashad really quick so we get to see Kampmann-Rivera and Leites-Marquardt

This main card is solid...more solid then a lot of the others have been in the past. however it is missing the one big draw if you know what i mean. it is still a great card and it looks very explosive with great match-ups and i will most definitely be watching it.

Bisping cant match the power of leben or the iron chin. Leben rocks bisping in the second and finishes it via ground n pound. Bisping's chin will be tested in this fight. Oh yeah!

Leben looked more mature in his fight against Martin but went back to the old Leben against Sakara with that reckless style. I think we need to see the more mature and patient Leben if he wants to win this fight otherwise Bispings accuracy will catch Leben if he's swinging wildly.

might actually be best pay per view so far this year, i can't believe the marquadt fight did not make the main card,

Yeah that is total BS....

I bet Leban KO's Bisping, I think Bisping will play it safe and try to outpoint him, then he will hit/hurt Leben who's reaction will make him get the KO of the night bonus!

Gotta love Leben. Alotta people hated on him because of his show antics. Then he started putting on some crazy fights (Martin, Sakara, and i think he shoulda got the D over Starnes). But even on the show you could tell the dude loved to fight. His styles a little wild being that he lets himself get rocked in order to give a shot. But goddamn is it entertaining. Hey it's no Chuck vs. Shogun but it could be worse. Show me Edgar vs. Huerta and I'm sold.

That is CRAZY NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I seriously didnt expect Hughes to fight! And not Alves thats for damn sure, im worried Hughes can outwrestler Thiago and a legit contender is spoiled

But the Bisping Leben fight was good enough to be the main event imo without the need for that fight, its gonna be a brawl and Bispings chin will be tested, if he got rocked by a Hamill jab he is gonna be in trouble of Leben lands, but Bisping is more technical and i can see a UD win for Bisping based on how good he looked striking against Chainsaw

This card is the bomb i was so pissed when i found out that Liddell was injured but props to Dana and Joe Silva for saving us. I think the card might actually be stronger now than it was before.

I really want to see the Kampman fight... i hope that makes it... some gets a quick KO... hopefully some one i picked

Great addition. With Leben being "the gatekeeper," this should let us know on which side of the fence Bisping belongs on.

That will never happen. Bisping will destroy leben.
