Leben Takes Axe Murderer Spot on UFC 116 Card
Chris Leben will take Wanderlei Silva’s spot on the UFC 116 card according to MMAWeekly. Leben just handed Aaron Simpson a loss at The Ultimate Fighter Finale and now he will step right into the July 3rd card.
Leben will face Yoshihiro Akiyama only fourteen days after his fight with Simpson. Luckily, Leben escaped injury and will be able to compete on the main part of the UFC 116 card. Wanderlei Silva was not so fortunate. Silva suffered fractured ribs which forced him to pull out of the event. UFC 116 is headlined by Shane Carwin and Brock Lesnar.
