Aside from subbing Akiyama, he took the fight on two weeks notice, and still finished. If that's your definition of a can, you are a stranger fellow that I already thought!
It really seems to me that 90% of the people on here have no clue about this Sport.
Akiyama is unable to train.. he always gasses out after just 1 Round in every single fight he is in.
It's no accomplishemnt to sub somebody who is death tired laying in your guard. Everybody can submit that!
It doesn't mean that Leben is the better fighter. He is obviously not the better fighter even though he won and everyone who has seen the fight can tell that and must know that.
Wanderlai fought the best of the best until today. Just beat Bisping clearly and would have stopped him.
Leben is a brawler who relies on his chin and his chin only. Thats what I call a can.. somebody who just doesn't fit in the higher group of fighters.
And no, he doesn't belong in there with Wanderlai and Wandy is going to show that tonight.
