Brunson is a tough young kid I think he has a bright future. I'm curious to see how he rebounds from the knockout loss to Jacare. This is a very winnable fight for both men.

I just don't think Brunson is well-rounded enough to take on a vet like Leben.

Leben via tko.

Nice to see Brunson in the UFC. If Jacare can KO Brunson, Leben should be more than capable. Brunson is a little more well rounded however. If he Brunson can get this to the ground it's his fight to win, but Leben's chance of getting a quick stoppage are good. Hmmm I'll have to think about this one lol.

i think its too early for leban to fight lombard. i think he needs a smaller name thats tough but not lombard caliber. i dont want to see leban get destroyed right after being layed up for that long. i think brunson is a great choice, he's tough and young with a lot to prove. leban has to prove himself again too.

Very surprised lombard didn't take this fight.
This card is taking hits. Not suprised.

Glad Brunson stepped up. I hope they get a replacement for McKenzie
