Chris Leben Never Paid Taxes On UFC Earnings


‘Uncle Sam’ is a worthy opponent for anyone who has stepped inside the cage, even Chris Leben.

With the way the UFC pay’s their fighters, it is each athletes responsibility to pay their own taxes. The UFC isn’t taking out withholding’s for these guys like a salaried employee, which is why it’s important to pay what you owe come tax time.

The recently retired Chris Leben has apparently never done this, as told by Dana White:

“Chris Leben had some minor tax issues, which he is getting cleared up – minor in that he never paid his taxes. He’s getting that cleared up. [He owes a ]Couple bucks. Imagine never paying taxes and making a lot of money, how much that would be. That much.”
