    The Lebenmeister needs to go to welterweight.

    I can't believe Dana overruled Joe Silva to keep that fight on the main card. It was obvious thats how that fight was going to go. I bet Dana has only seen one Brunson fight, him getting KO'd by Jacare in 40 seconds.

    Whatever Leben, from what I remember he had opportunities to take the fight over, but it looked like he was wading through water he was so sluggish. I haven't rewatched the fight though, but then again I don't think I wanna punish myself like that.

    That fight might have been interesting if Chris Leben's underrated ground game were a real thing and not just something Joe Rogan made up.

    I agree with Leben. That dude was holding on Leben and waiting for the round to end.

    Not that I'm rushing to defend this fight, but did you guys even see the snooze-fest that came after? Way worse, if you ask me....

    Brunson was so excited at the end of the most boring fight in the UFC history.

    What exactly did Leben do to make this fight exciting?

    I know the guy has been in some great wars in the past, but let's not act like he did a damn thing other than look slow and exhausted.

    I've seen old women in orthopedic shoes with better cardio than Leben and Brunson. That fight was sad.

    He was losing exchanges.. didn't literally mean he was beaten up that badly. Just outclassed by a guy that isn't that good.

    Doing nothing at all, in comparison is exciting as hell, I guess. :p

    I don't like boring fighters. But Leben is being ridiculous.

    Sexyama was horribly gassed. Exuding that much sexiness is exhausting.
