Cabezone has a little shameless behaviour in the past
He made 500,000 between 2010 and 2011 from UFC paychecks alone. That doesn't include whatever he got from sponsors. If he's broke now it has nothing to do with expenses and everything to do with poor money management. He's been living paycheck to paycheck when he should have been saving everything he could.

That's what happens when you fuk with opiates, man. He's an addict, a life long addict at that. He'll come back and make himself a good lick of money ,but then he'll crash and fall again. It's all a phase...he kind of admitted that he's a junkie in an old interview. He's a good guy, but don't expect much in terms of changing, he already tried that whole thing a few years ago..

I don't know why people are making generalizations about UFC pay and money management in this thread. This thread is about one thing only, and that's ADDICTION! I don't think you guys realize that addiction is like an illness, that doesn't make Leben "stupid" or "all his fault". Show some compassion, jesus...

I hope he has a killer streak for a little while. Most fans have to love Leben as one of the last true warriors.

As much as I want to entirely blame Leben for his financial woes, I could also that if the UFC actually paid better... he might have lasted a year suspension better like other Athletes.

Problem is almost everyone lives past their means, regardless of profession.

Do they drug test during the suspension? If they don't than that most likely means he's using...

He just bought a condo in Honolulu, and when I say just, I mean this month. We may have different definitions of broke.
