Michael Bisping beat Chris Leben in a unanimous decision on Saturday in England. Unlike his controversial split decision against Matt Hamill, Bisping won this one pretty convincingly. The judges scorecards were 30-27, 30-27, and 29-28.

The fight was an exciting one, and now Bisping looks poised for a title fight with UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Silva will defend his belt on October 25 against Patrick Cote.

  Until Bisping wins a fight someplace other then England, I could careless.  The traveling takes a huge toll on fighters.  I'm not saying he isn't a good fighter, but until he can fight somewhere other then his homeland, not impressed.  Why Dana is handing him these fights over there amazes me.
