Although he hasn't given an official interview since his UFC 155 loss to Derek Brunson, Chris Leben has taken to Twitter to explain his side of the fight:

i just watched the fight. Hindsight is 20/20 there's def some things i would change about my performance. Coaches game plan was dead on

I just had a little ring rust. But that being said derek brunson is a boring fighter the times he hit me, i let him just to get him to swing

read official Twitter...

Ahhh UFC, bring guys in to lose, everyone gets petulant when they actually win. Fuck they are still relying on guys like Leben and Bonnar to make ugly sloppy slug fests. I will take boring over that crap any day.

Just shut up and and go back to the damn drawing board. Also Dana should learn to fake a smile.

Hey Leben some guys dont have a perminate spot on the roster like you do. Some guys need to win to stay with the UFC. Here is an idea try and develope a little Leben and you might win some of the boring fights instead of the slobber knocker. Good job Brunson. You came in short notice and did what you had to. Leben you have nobody to blame but yourself.

Brunson is a good wretler and won by takedowns in a boring fight, is not a mma fighter, agree tith leben.

I love Leben.  He's a guy that's a proven vet.  Derek, on the other hand, really needs to show up more if he plans to stick around.

What the fuck did you expect from Brunson? 

To take the fight on short notice and throw away his main weapon to fight his opponent in his own game.

Boring fight? yes, but Dana doesnt understand MMA enough to have put that fight on the undercard. Blame him

I'd probably piss myself if I managed to beat a veteran in my first fight on the biggest stage there is. Don't get me wrong, Brunson is definitely boring and it was an over reaction, but shit. Phone Post
Especially when on a two fight losing streak. Phone Post

Some good points here.

Brunson took a fight on very short notice against a guy who can put anyone away with one shot.

Besides all that its not like Leben doesnt have a ground game so there werent many options for Brunson to go on.

He would have probably been KOd if he stood and banged.

And he possibly could have been subbed if he got sloppy on the ground.

Remembering that it was Brunsons first UFC fight and probably the most money he ever had a chance at earning, I think he fought the perfect fight under tough circumstances!

If Dana wanted an exciting fight, he should have matched Leben up with someone of similar credentials in terms of UFC experience and pay!

this is what makes this whole thread sad...a guy who lost 3 of his last 4 has job security, BUT a fighter who took a fight on short notice AND WON is in danger of being cut....


How is this sad?  I've seen Derek's two fights prior to this and wasn't impressed.

 

Leben, on the other hand, is a proven warrior with a huge fanbase.  What is sad about that??? It's called reality.

Honestly Leben looked terrible. I don't think he would have had an exciting fight with anyone considering how bad he looked. Hopefully Brunson improves but I'm not sure... it was quite short notice also.

That about sums it up. Brunson had VERY short notice, did the best he could and even came close to finishing with a choke.

Still a Leben fan, but it is really a meathead's way of thinking if you think someone's punches landing on your face and not bothering you matter. You may not find them to hurt, but when the judge's are watching someone punch you in the face it "hurts" you. They score the round 10-9 for the other guy and you lose the fight and don't get a win bonus. So ultimately they are way more damaging beyond the physicality of them.

And leben has lost 3 of 4 and embarrassed his company and himself...

Were you impressed with leben's last 2..? Phone Post

I think you're obviously not a Leben fan.  I am not one of these "what has my favorite fighter done for me lately" fans.  Can anyone forget what Leben did not long before that?  Th guy had two finishes in a matter of app. 2 weeks once.  That's the Leben I remember.

Go back to my original post and read it.  I never badmouthed Brunson, he seems like a sweet guy.  I said if he wants to stick around he's going to have to show up next time.  Did you not hear what the boss said about him?  If he doesn't, he'll be cut, and Leben will still be around.  And that is a fact.
