Even though it is only late June, a bout is already scheduled for UFC 89 – scheduled to take place on October 18 – at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England; according to Brian Knapp of The Fight Network, Michael Bisping is set to step into the octagon against Chris Leben; the matchup was confirmed by the UFC’s Marshall Zelaznik.  Bisping (16-1) last fought on June 7, when he thrashed Jason Day at UFC 85 while Leben (18-4) hasn’t fought since March when he soundly defeated Alessio Sakara in the first round at UFC 82.  Bisping and Leben were originally supposed to have met at UFC 85 earlier this month in London; however, Leben was forced to withdraw as he had to serve jail time in Oregon for a probation violation.
