    This is like the only post fight vid I could find of Leben for you guys. Seems frustrated with the way Brunson fought but says fans have helped with postive comments. Really good in depth interview with him on the changes he has made as a person. glad to see he is in a better place.

    Its good that he is in a better place but that was one of the worst performances I have ever seen from Leben. If he keeps fighting like that he'll be back on the local circuit real fast.

    Hard to fight when the guy you're fighting is throwing himself at you more desperately than the "Overly Clingy Girlfriend" girl.

    It was frustrating to watch but you need TDD in this game.

    Hopefully he'll come back give him a stand up fighter like Mayhem next.

    Would have helped if Chris didn't gas within the first three minutes.

    it was more frustrating to watch leben gas out, and be unable to stop the takedown or get off his back.

    If he thinks that's frustrating, he should watch it from my perspective.

    Or striking defense in this game?

    Towards the second half of the fight, Brunson was tagging him regularly.

    he's "frustrated" whenever he's outclassed. first it was bisping outboxing him, now it's brunson outwrestling him.

    This fight was a joke. Neither Leben nor Brunson deserve a slap on the back for that shit. Brunson falling to the mat and letting out a "victory scream" at the end was ridiculous. Leben reportedly had a look of "Are you shitting me??" on his face when Brunson did it - fair enough, but holy crap, Leben, what the hell were YOU doing in there for three rounds? :rolleyes:

    Mayhem has been cut and also is primarily a grappler.

    This

    Why are people confusing this fight with a Tyron Woodley fight?

    Leben would plod forward, get taggged, then stuff a few TDs, rinse and repeat.

    The only extended time on the ground was in the first round. Leben would get back to his feet in decent time every TD after that.

    It wasn't the most exciting fight but I always enjoy watching leben lose and then complain about a frustrating opponent. I guess nobody told brunson he was just supposed to get into sloppy exchanges with Leben and get knocked out.

    Leben shouldn't be upset with the way Brunson fought he should be upset by the fact that he's been fighting for 10 years and still has no TDD even against a low level opponent with crap cardio.

    Leben looked must have trained at Hammer House for this ight because he was done after the first few minutes.
