Really impressed with Chris Leben's new attitude...

I've been watching all the video's and the countdown for his upcoming fight. He has matured so much its crazy barely seems like the same guy! He used to always talk so much crap and put down his opponent and say how he was going to destroy him etc etc... he still seems confident but he is showing nothing but class and respect for Bisping.... I'm even more of a fan of him now, seems like a great guy and he's finally training the way he should be!

I was too impressed, and I think he is going to suprise bisping because bisping has never faced someone with quite as much power as leben. Good to have seen him mature from a type A emotional wreck on the TUF show to a great all-around fighter now!

I really like both fighters. As long as the fight itself is good, I will be happy with whoever wins. Leben has a great attitude and has looked so much better in his last two fights. But at the same time, I've always thought Bisping had a great attitude, and he too has looked his best in his last two fights. I just hope they put out a good fight.

Leben really grew up since his TUF days. I'm really impressed with the Chris Leben. I've always been a fan of his fights, but lately I've liked him as a person, too. I hope he performs well in his upcoming bout. Whether he wins or loses, I'm still happy for him.

Chris has retained some of his cockiness, but he isn't over confident like he used to be. I think we are going to see a Leben that uses his brain to go with those bombs he calls punches. It makes him a really dangerous opponent. While I don't think he would beat Silva now I do believe he would have won his other fights if he had this attitude and commitment.
