"I said [to myself] I gotta draw him in somehow. I was playing every card I had. At that point I was like fucking screw it, let's trade. Let's try to get him to come in and bang with me a little bit and maybe I could land that shot. Sometimes you do and sometimes you don't. And this time I didn't. It was Bisping's night tonight."
-- Chris Leben talks in the post-fight press conference about his mindset as he realized he was losing the main event fight against Michael Bisping at UFC 89: "Bisping vs. Leben" at The National Indoor Arena (NIA) in Birmingham, England, last night. "The Crippler" was clearly the more aggressive fighter, but "The Count" used that to his advantage, sticking, moving and peppering Leben with crisp punches for about 15 minutes. At several moments in the fight, Leben attempted to bait Bisping into a brawl by dropping his hands and sticking his chin out to get punched. The Brit didn't bite. In the end, both their faces told the tale on this one -- Leben was battered and Bisping looked as if he went untouched.
