Will say though if Brunson looked that slim and trim on 10 days notice and that much smaller than Leben what the hell is he doing at MW? Guy should be at WW IMO.
I give him 0 credit for losing to kendall grove, getting brutally KO'd by jacare and arguably ( i think so) losing to a stumbling no grappling gassed leben. Brunson is ASS

Started re-reading Xenophon's The Expedition in Cyrus during this fight.


Guy was just running away by the end.

This felt like a fight from 2005 before guys understood that you can get back up when a guy takes you down... That's not against the rules...

Awful. Brunson is going to be murdered by whoever he fights next an I can't wait to see it.

Leben looked pathetic. My days of thinking that he can be a top ten are pretty much done at this point.

What kind of preparation do you think Brunson had over the 10 days he had to get ready. Would have taken a day to get it together after being offered the fight -1 day, He had to get Vegas -1 day, had weigh ins weight cut -1 day. That leaves 7 but those 7 days are also over Xmas which meant likely no training partners and a coaching staff that was already gone for Xmas. Jeez in that 10 days he couldn't get a good enough gas tank to put Leben away and all he could do was outs wrestle and out strike Leben for 15 minutes despite being exhausted. It may not have been the most impressive debut but it certainly was one that deserve more respect than it is being given.
