"Chris Leben represents my toughest fight so far," Bisping said. "He's very experienced, which counts for a lot. He hits hard, he's fought some good guys and he's beaten some good guys. People say he's a brawler. Sure, he likes to brawl, but anyone who's fought in the UFC also has the skills to back it up as well. ... I think I've got better all-around MMA skills and I think ultimately that's what will win me the fight."
Bisping will be fighting in front of a home crowd in the main event at UFC 89, which takes place on October 18 at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England.
