Dana White said recently he's pulling for Chris Leben when the suspended middleweight returns. Now that return has a date.

Leben (22-8 MMA, 12-7 UFC), whose suspension will be lifted in November, will face Karlos Vemola (9-3 MMA, 2-3 UFC) at the UFC's year-end show, UFC 155. UFC officials on Wednesday announced the fight booking.

I never would have guessed this would be his return fight but hopefully he can put it together.

I thought Vemola was cut? Tough fight for Leben if his TDD and cardio isn't in top shape

Definitely a tough fight for Leben, but he has been on the gym for a while now, so I fully expect him to come out looking great!!

Good scrap I would love to see Leben get knocked out in his return not a big fan of his

Glad to see Leben back but I fear this is the beginning of the end for him unless what Dana said months ago about his new mentality is true.

He's been keeping up with his training during the suspension so I don't think he'll have much trouble against Vemola.

It'll look like Leben/Simpson.

I only like it if Vemola trades with Leben, but I doubt he will throughout the fight.

I actually think if he clips Leben the counter will be too much for him....Leben all day by KO or Decision.
