    No way Leben quit, he couldnt see out of 1 eye and had a go at fighting on after lieing to the doc and saying he could see.

    He had balls to fight with one eye for a round but it could have been a career ending fight if he took more damage to his eye.

    I think saying he quit was harsh because you cant fight with 1 eye as you have no dept perseption to judge how close someone is to land a strike.

    2brutal, no, just no mate. Any other fighter, and I mean ANY other fighter and you could probably say they wanted out of a fight. But not Chris Leben, he is probably the very last fighter in MMA that would give up in a fight. Look at the Anderson fight, the Stann fight, the Martin fight, the Akiyama fight... So many fights he is absolutely fucked and nearly beaten but he never gives up or 'wants out'.


    You said yourself the cut (which looked nasty) was above his eyebrow, there wasn't a chance Stitch was closing that gash up enough to stop the blood covering his eye. Like Ben said, he actually lied to stay in the fight!!

    Ref- Can you see?

    Leben- No.

    Ref- If you can't see I'm stopping this fight.

    Leben- I can see!

    Something along those lines Laughing


    Will always admire Leben as a fighter (even though he KO'd Wand Sad ) but he's never gonna be near a title shot again. Good win for Munoz but I still don't buy the hype, I think he's still go a lot of holes in his game. His wrestling actually isn't that good, his striking is terrible and his chin doesn't look anything above average. He has power, endurance and something i will praise him for is his shit scary G'n'P. I still think he lost to Maia also. Was a great night of fights, Terry Etim looked remarkable!

    The John Maguire fight was one of the best back-and-forth fights of the year IMO.

    I enjoyed all the pre lim fights,except that shocking stinkfest put on by De Fries and Broughton.

    Thought Cariaso put on a good performance against lee,Young looked good standing with Omigawa and Omigawa fought well.
    Che mills put on a clinic and destroyed Cope with a sweet finish and the maguire - edwards fight was also a good fight.

    Yeah I too enjoyed the prelims, apart from that HW snoozer. zzzzzzzz.

    Mills had a sweet KO and Maguire/Edwards was a great war that could've won FOTN in my opinion.
