Chris Leben vs. Brian Stann In The Works for UFC 125 on Jan. 1

Chris LebenRising middleweight Chris Leben will look to continue his climb towards a title shot when he returns to action against former WEC champ Brian Stann on the pay-per-view main card at UFC 125 on January 1 in Las Vegas. The matchup was first reported by MMAjunkie earlier today.

Leben (21-6) quickly rose up the middleweight rankings after earning ‘fight night’ bonuses in back-to-back wins over Aaron Simpson and Yoshihiro Akiyama just two-weeks apart this summer.

After dropping a unanimous decision to Phil Davis in February, Stann (9-3) made his middleweight debut in August with a third-round submission of Mike Massenzio.

The UFC 125 fight card features Thiago Silva vs. Brandon Vera and could include middleweight champ Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort or a lightweight champ Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard.
