middleweight bout between veteran UFC middleweight Chris Leben (18-5 MMA, 8-4 UFC) and recent WEC transplant Jake Rosholt (5-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) will take place in August at UFC 102.

A source close to the negotiations today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) both competitors have agreed to the fight and that bout agreements are in the process of being finalized.

UFC 102 takes Aug. 29, most likely in Portland, Ore. Although not officially announced, a heavyweight bout between former champ Randy Couture and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is expected to headline the pay-per-view show.

i got leben by steriods, i mean ko. lol... leben will easily win this fight long as he can stay off the ground for some of the fight, not all of it. jus most of it, can easily get a knock out for sure.

What is funny about that? If you think that is any sort of stretch at all, you're kidding yourself. Rosholt is great wrestler and has the accolades to prove it. I could definatly see him taking Leben down and controlling him on the ground en route to a UD.

Awesome matchup. I'll be pulling for Leben but i wouldn't be surprised to see Rosholt grind out a decision. Either way i'm stoked to finally get a ufc in the NW.

I really enjoy watching Leben fight, and i'm just happy to see him back.

Hopefully, as he's shown once already in his career, he's learned from this experience and will get his head on straight and become an even better fighter.
