Apparently, Chris Leben (16-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC) was willing to fight — just not against Mike Swick.

Interesting

I think it depends...honestly.

Martin is OBVIOUSLY a stronger/better striker than Swick....but Swick has more explosive power and is much faster than Martin. Leben v Swick = Swick presses Leben constantly with quick shots/combos and most likely overwhelms him for a tko or flash ko. Leben being more of a counter-puncher/laid-back striker means that he might have opportunities to ko Swick, and obviously he can ko Swick.

Martin v Leben = two guys who will just stand in front of each other trading shots until one of them is KO'd. Martin has (probably) more chance of KOing Leben than Swick would....but he has more chance of getting KO'd by Leben than Swick would as well.

They are both bad fights for Leben imo....and I'm not really sure why he would duck Swick and take Martin...but apparently he believes (like I do) that he has a better shot at KOing Martin than he does Swick.



Martin 1st round brutal KO imo

Depends on which Leben shows up, hes looked a bit overweight and unmotivated in his last few fights (much like Mir)

No, there was one in another section, but this should be in the news section so that it gets in the MMA News feed.

Not your bad. You are in the right. It should be in the news section even if it is a dup. No sweat.
