A middleweight bout between Jay Silva (5-1) and Chris Leben (18-7) is set to take place at "Ultimate Fight Night 20". MMA Recap (mmarecap.com) has confirmed the report with Silva. UFN 20 is set to take place on January 11 and will air live on SpikeTV.
Silva is coming off a loss to CB Dollaway at "Ultimate Fight Night: Diaz vs Guillard". While Silva lost the fight, it was Dollaway who was worse for wear. After nearly submitting Silva, Dollaway was gassed and Silva took shot after shot after shot on Dollaway dropping him three times through out the fight. Silva likes to go out there and knock your head off, and Leben is a perfect candidate for Silva.
Leben is on a two-fight losing streak after losing to Michael Bisping and most recently Jake Rosholt. Rumors have stated that Leben did not train for the Rosholt fight after a nine-month suspension. Leben is 8-5 inside the UFC and always loves to look for the knockout.
UFN 20 now looks like:
• Jay Silva vs Chris Leben
• Josh Koscheck vs Mike Pierce
• Aaron Simpson vs Tom Lawlor
• Efrain Escudero vs Nik Lentz
