"Got my blue belt today from sidney silva" Chris Leben earns his blue belt the Brazillian way (video) - http://youtu.be/yRpb24XsRp8

Leben will be eligible to return in November of 2012 after failing a post-fight drug test (Oxycodone and Oxymorphine) following his loss to Mark Munoz at UFC 138 last November in Birmingham, England.

Good to see he has been working hard during his suspension, can't wait to see him fight again!

I thought he already was a blue belt, especially after all these years of training

A year off is a great thing for Leben, judging off his twitter account, He has been doing a lot better and training all aspects of MMA around the world.

I want to see him back in action!!

Never seen what?

A long time fighter going back for his blue belt? Or are you referring to the picture?

Leben is my favourite fighter in the history of MMA. He will be 32 and a half when he returns and will still have a good 3-4 years of competition ahed of him. The only thing I am concerned about is will his durability remain in his later years of competing. We have seen so many guys take shots esarly in their career, then get knocked unconscious by a small left hook (Chuck Liddell). I ust hope Leben comes back and fights intelligently and wins the UFC gold!
