Leben: Focused, I'm unbeatable

by Bryan Levick | source: bleacherreport.com

“For me I always knew what type of fighter I could be,” offered Leben. “I knew I had the physical tools and the heart, but truthfully my biggest enemy has always been me. When I am right and focused I don’t see anyone beating me. The biggest difference has to be doing the right thing. It has to do with more of a focus on training and taking better care of myself.”

In Leben’s last fight, he knocked out MMA legend Wanderlei Silva in just 27 seconds. It was a vicious knockout that saw “The Axe Murderer” fall face first onto the canvas. Afterwards, White suggested that it was maybe time for Silva to call it a career. Being such a huge fan of Silva for so many years, Leben had his own take on that situation.

“I feel like it should be the fighter’s call and that they themselves should know when it’s time to hang up the gloves,” Leben explained. “Wanderlei Silva has done so much for this sport. I think he still has some good fights left in him. Anyone would have gone down if they were hit as hard as I hit him. If Silva wants another fight I believe Dana owes it to him.”

 Leben claims the reason he was puking for Stann was because in his 20th+ pro fight he decided after weigh ins to have gummi bears and ice cream and candy bars. ...................

Poor guy has mentally blocked out the night Anderson starched him. Leben could do everything right for an 8 week camp and you could pull Anderson straight out of McDonalds and he'd still get given another epic smashing.

I want to put money on Leben, but I'm afraid of him beating Munoz in round 1 and then Munoz wrestlefucks him for the next two rounds or something.

Leben has always been deluded about where he stands skillwise in the UFC. He's a slow moving brawler with an iron chin and left hand. No amount of focus is gonna stop him from being picked apart by faster accurate strikers. I don't give a shit if Leben went full vegan and had the best camp of his life, Brian Stann hits faster, more accurately, and won't leave his chin out there on a platter like Wand did.With that said, I give him a good chance against Munoz. Munoz is sloppy as hell. Leben just needs one of those lefts.
