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.

This will be one of the hardest fights for me to pick. It's going to be a great fight.

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.
