Quick Twitt | Leben Admits To Letting Brunson Hit Him Just So The boring Guy Would Swing | UFC News

Chris Leben found himself under Dana White’s microscope following his lackluster decision loss to Derek Brunson at this past weekend’s UFC 155 event.

The UFC boss said it was a mistake to put the fight on the pay-per-view portion of the card.

To that, the middleweight fighter took to twitter to explain his side.

    I love Leben but it sucks that he had such a poor performance. I really hope Dana keeps him and he comes back like the old Leben in his next fight, that is if he comes back…

      Dana is 100% keeping him.
      Leben will no doubt be on a prelim spot on a soon to be Fox fight.

      Who even that kid was that he fought…. GO TAKE A TRIP TO THAILAND AND LEARN SOME STRIKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU WHERE AWFUL! JUST AWFUL!!!

        i hear ya, its sad to see a professinal fighter at the highest stage of the game, have such a gap in his game.. I mean iv seen guys at our gym whov been there for 6 months that had a better understanding of striking. You dont even have to go to thailand, most of the greats are already here in america. I guess he would just rather lube up, throw on some spandex and WRASTLE

    I heard he did some crossfit-like training which is why he gassed out so early. My coach said if you do crossfit, he will not coach you in the ring/cage because you are fighting someone not flipping tires or pushing sleds in the ring.

    Leben can say whatever he wants, the fact remains he got beat.. making excuses just makes him look like a sore loser.. Brunson obviously needs some striking help, but his grappling is legit.. And if I remember correctly, in the Countdown show, Leben said it didnt matter where the fight took place, he would beat Brunson anywhere. I guess it didnt pan out for him.

    Chris Leben is a joke, i used to like him but now he proved he doesn’t have what it take to be at least decent fighter.

  5. DARTHVADER says:

    you guys realize he took the fight on 8 days notice. leben should just shut up. He gassed too and didnt do shit.

  6. Benny Sin says:

    Agreed. Leben is making excuses. He lost to a guy who, realistically, took the fight on a couple of days notice… So full of it.

  7. Patrickus says:

    They’ll keep him, every weight division needs a “Gate keeper”.

    what a loser/coward LEBEN is. only cowards blame others for their short comings (and here we go w/all the “LEBEN is not a coward!” comments…)

    go take some more oxy, you junkie.

  9. Mat says:

    Yeah, Leben sucks, plusss he paints his nails! Get real fag
