Im glad to see it. This guy always comes to fight and fight hard. He may not be the most gifted athelete, but he has legitimate KO power and he takes it to whoever he is fighting and that is always entertaining.

He's always fun to watch if just to see what color his hair will be, plus he's had some almost funny finishes to his fights, like the one time he KO'd a guy with a punch right after he got punched in the nose. Hopefully he gets a good run of wins going and can get back into big fight contention.

(Insert slow clap) I am pumped he is one of my favourite fighters. If you want to kill like 2 minutes of time sarch his name on youtube and watch one of his friends punch him in the face when thier drunk.

lebens got good heart. we all saw that w/ the Terry Martin fight. but he has to cut and make 70 or even if he can 55. anderson put a beating on him. so did J Mac. they over powered him in every aspect. if he COULD make it to 155, (not sure if he can but i might be wrong) he would have a far greater chance on winning. i alwayz said, if leben cut to 70, he would wreck Diego when he was 170.

This is awesome news, he has potential to develop into a contender maybe, but he will certainly be a very good gatekeeper of the UFC MW division, i was certain he was going to fight for Pro Elite!!! glad he stays in the UFC
