UFC fighter Chris Leben, who turned himself in to Clackamas County officials in Portland, Oregon, last week, went before a judge on Thursday for sentencing for his probation violation case.

According to Clackamas County Court officials, Leben’s probation was revoked and he was sentenced to 35-days in jail. With credit given for time already served, his release would come at the end of May, putting his release inside of two weeks prior to a scheduled bout against Michael Bisping at UFC 85 in London.

Following the completion of his jail time, Leben will be clear of his probation, which stems from a DUI arrest in 2005.

This is a real chance for Chris Leben to show himself as a real threat again in teh 185 lb division, and if he can't fight this fight, or be ready to fight when it comes it will really set him back

They wouldn't scrap Bisping in the UK, they may get a replacement for Leben.

Nah! Leben never had cardio anyways. He is all about a brick head and iron fist. 35 days in jail dont take that away from a man.

This fight will go ahead and it will be the same outcome as if Leben never went to jail. Bisping by decision.
