Lol. Wow, that was sure a beating. I actually though Leben would win because I heard good things about him but he took the role of a punching bag in that match. I sure hope Anderson Silva isn't going to take that title away from Franklin. I sure hope not.

I made this post before.


Anderson is a very Techincal striker with a decent ground game,He's beaten great fighters like Jeremy Horn,I dont think everyone relizes how much of a goft it is to have him here.

This is the time for Chris (He is going against an amazing fighter) he has dominated most of his fights since getting in UFC.He is a very well rounded fighter with great wrestling haveing trained with RANDY COTURE for awhile,Although he lacks some Striking skill his coconut chin knock out punch and his mean Clinch. can make up for some of that.

I see this fight with Anderson throwing deadly knees and accurate punches,Chris trying to go for a big punch Clinching and going for a take down when he's losing the stand up war.But hey anything can happen in this fight.

Leben has a better personality and draw for new fans to see.

Anderson silva was said to be the best chute box striker ever. He is amazing. He will have a great fight career in the ufc.
Yeah. He will definitely earn a shot against Franklin for the title. I think he is the only man that can stop Franklin in the middleweight class after seeing that. And I sure hope he won't because Franklin is my second favourite fighter.

I just can't believe that i bet against anderson. I hoped leben and his cinder block head would help him win. I never go against a chute box fighter. I am so ashamed. Franklin better eat xience lick it's going out of style. He better pour it on his cereal.

Yeah, but first Anderson must beat Mike Swick then deserve a match against Franklin because I hate Mike Swick lol. Franklin I hope will get by Anderson. I hope he was watching Leben being pounded. Franklin probably is in shock right now and pulling out a xyience bar like Moldy said lol.

One won't cut it. He has to put it in his chilly, his soup, his cereal, everything. Franklin hasn't fought anyone with his striking ability. Anderson can really throw bombs and his ground game is excellent.

Holy Crap The Event Has Been Over For Like 2 Hours And I Still Feel Sick To The Belly From That Knockout.....20 Bucks Says Anderson Will Fight Once More Then Rich Will Be Healed And They Will Fight For The Mw Belt

Yes Anderson is to much for him my thoughts on that fight were some what accurate i just thought Leben would have done better.
Silva has to much experience i mean come on he beat Jeremy Horn, and Carlos Newton in the first round(When he was good)

Obviously this is a big wake up for chris and if he will start training better maybe in 2 years or so he will be a bigger force to look out for.
Im sure Silva will beat Mike Swick almost as bad.

The middle weight division needed a monster like this.

WOW

Chris Leben just woke up :( He got worked big time, reach was against him... DAMN, great fight from Anderson

Thoughts?
Chris Leben was WAY overated anyway....They were acting like he won the Ultimate fighting series...They forget that Diego was the man......Leben tonight was in there with someone that's been around....This guy would give Rich Franklin a run for his money....

The only reason Leben has become famous is because his connection with Randy Couture and Rand and Dana White are really really close.

Alot of it is because of his Insane Personality on the mic and on the show,ANd his red hair helps alot as well.New fighter winning most of his fights.But like i said that guy is a worldclass striker fast as hell was tailor made to beat Chris.By the time Leben is 28 i think he will have improved BIG BIG BIG TIME.

I'm just in shock after seeing what Anderson did. I am praying Rich Franklin won't lose that belt because Franklin is my second favourite MMA UFC fighter and I would just hate to see him get beaten down like what happened to Leben.
