Chris Leben this weekend.

Ime looking on doing a 20 accumilator this weekend:

Silva via Tko
Edgar via points
Swanson via Tko or Points

And I was thinking of putting Leben in with odd's at evens, do you think he's worth the gamble?.

Anyone else doing any bets?.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

I wouldn't. He's coming back from how long off? He's fought only a handful of times in the last two years.

Leben should win but it's just not worth it imho.

I don't think he's a bad bet. Has re-focused, is finally clean, has moved his training away from the distractions of Hawaii, and seems to be in a much better mindset. He knows he needs a win, and from the sounds of things he's very motivated to do just that. I reckon it'd be worth a go.

You see some interviews with him? What makes you think this?

Ive lot so much money on this dude coming to fights and cutting too much weight before hand, or being in the wrong mindset and getting a beatdown. Nowdays I have lost the Leben faith. Last fights we like slow motion punching from him

There's an article about him on MMAJunkie put on recently. Definitely seems to be in a better mindset, and I think most importantly for Leben, he's clean. Could be his best octagon performance for a while, we'll see. He's definitely done everything right in this camp from the sounds of things!

Depends. Is it still a win if he gets busted for steroids afterwards?

I don't bet on Chris. Heard it before from him with the, "great camp, great mindset, I'm back and better, etc," talk. No way.
