    Chris made the UFC interesting back when the promotion needed all the help it could get. Now he's having to resort to this shit to make a living. I liked Chris and hate to see this happen, but I wish him the best. Love the NYBA too.

    They kept Chris employed for years when they had plenty of reasons to drop him like a bad habit.

    They kept him because he was winning fights in spectacular fashion, his fights were good so don’t lie to yourself

    I think Leben looks decent considering his age and wear/tear he has put on his body. Atleast you can tell he is natural and not on the juice.

    Remember when he knocked out Wanderlei?

    That was sad to see. Then Chael went on to say "I hope Wanderlei is ok. He can't do this work"

    Don't recall claiming he was boring, but he traded wins and losses, a 3 fight win streak was considered a career resurgence for him.
    But as far as me claiming UFC could cut him, it has more to do with popping for oxy, popping for stanozolol and getting at least one DUI all without being a somebody the UFC could even spin as a draw or champion when the promotion was still trying to prove the sport wasn't just filled with animals and the derelicts of society.

    They did, at least that was the reason given for not fighting for Bellator.
