Chris Leben-Andrew Craig Booked For UFC 162

Middleweights Chris Leben and Andrew Craig will join a host of fellow 185-pound fighters in July, as the bout was confirmed for UFC 162 on UFC Tonight Tuesday.

The event takes place July 6 from Las Vegas, and will feature a main event between UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman.

Placement of the Leben-Craig fight is currently unknown.

Both fighters are coming off a loss, as Leben (22-9) was defeated by Derek Brunson. He was returning to action after a year-long layoff for a failed drug test.

Craig (8-1) suffered his first career defeat earlier this year vs. Ronny Markes. He had previously defeated both Rafael Natal and Kyle Noke.
