Leben wouldn't have much trouble putting away Le, all he would have to do is keep the pressure on. Lebens grappling should be years ahead of Cung's, but honestly I'm pretty confident he would keep Cung uncomfortable on the feet, moving backward, and knock him out.
To Leben, fighting and knocking a guy out is kind of a normal thing at this point. For Cung, he almost had an aneurism when Frank Shamrock broke his arm and couldn't continue. When I look at the two of them (Leben and Le), I see a level of comfort in the cage that is not even comparable. To compare two different fights and say that Cung would outpoint Leben just like Bisping did, is ridiculous. Scott Smith is old, Scott Smith can't even afford TRT!!!, and he still stopped Le. Sure, Cung beat him in the rematch, but my point is that Smith isn't Chris Leben. Leben isn't broke! If this fight happens, Leben will come in juiced to the legal limits, and he will literally crush Le's skull into the octagon floor!
Right now, I'd like to see Leben fight someone a little more relevant. Cung should prove he can beat a wrestler at this point, that is my opinion.
