UFC 168 Receives Chris Leben-Uriah Hall, Diego Brandao-Dustin Poirier

Two more matches have been added to UFC 168, as Chris Leben faces Uriah Hall and Diego Brandao squares off with Dustin Poirier.

Officials confirmed the two fights for the December 28 event from Las Vegas. The main event boasts Chris Weidman defending his UFC middleweight title vs. Anderson Silva, along with Ronda Rousey putting her female bantamweight belt on the line vs. Miesha Tate.

Leben (22-10) and Hall (7-4) could each be fighting for their respective UFC careers, though Leben has always been hailed as a favorite of UFC president Dana White.

Since returning from a drug-related suspension, Leben has lost to both Derek Brunson and Andrew Craig. Hall, a favorite to win The Ultimate Fighter, is coming off defeats vs. Kelvin Gastelum and Josh Howard.

Brandao (18-8) is a former TUF winner and sports a 4-1 UFC record, while Poirier (14-3) has won six of his eight Octagon fights.
