The UFC has two more bouts to its year-end card – one that could wind up being an important featherweight battle, and one that could be a middleweight slugfest.



Diego Brandao (18-8 MMA, 4-1 UFC), the Season 14 winner of "The Ultimate Fighter," will meet Dustin Poirier (14-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) at featherweight, while Chris Leben (22-10 MMA, 12-9 UFC) will take on Uriah Hall (7-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) at UFC 168. UFC officials announced the new fight bookings Thursday morning.

I'll be routing for Poirier here again.

Also I posted the fight between Hall and Leben 5 months ago on Twitter.

Hall/Leben is very interesting. Winnable for both guys, hopefully we finally see Uriah show his stuff here.

Also Poirier/Brandao is flippin' awesome.

Poirier should crush Brandao but I'm not sure what to think of Leben vs Hall. Leben is steadily going downhill but I have yet to see why Hall is God's gift to mma. I hope we see fireworks and not a slow paced ugly fight.

I hope Porrier gets overlooked here again like he was in his last fight. Every big mma media web site had Koch rolling over him, not quite sure why. Brando might get the same treatment, which would male Porrier a mouth watering wager. Porrier is going to be top 5 in the division soon & for years to come.

If Brandao doesn't take it in the first the Poirer's pace will win the fight in the second for sure...likely by sub too.

Very nice fights.

Brandao vs porieir probably will be on main card

Leban vs hall prelim for sure
Loser leaves town match probably
Third straight leban fight I have seen.
Amazingly he is 0-4 in live fights

Makes sense why UFC is announcing 168 fights
Tickets go on sale next week

Poirier vs Brandao is a solid fight I think Poirier out cardios Brandao and beats him easy.This is Halls last chance to shine. I hope he hits Leben with a spinning roundhouse right to that big red retarded head of his

judging by the posts in this thread, POIRIER will be a minimum -330.

WAR BRANDAO

I think Brandao is in over his head in this fight.

And I always root for Leben to lose, which will make this fight no different.

Both great match ups.

Hall should finally get a win here, if he can pull the trigger.

Poirier looks much improved, especially in the stand up department... Going to be a tough one for brandao, someone is going to sleep in that one
