I agree completley. I see him fighting someone like a drew mcfedries or someone like that. He should beat them and then take a step up in competition.I like the idea idea of Leben vs. Okami. Problem with Leben though is that he doesn't have that impressive wins streaked yet, plus there was that steroid bust etc. too. I would expect Dana to give him another B-C level opponent before throwing him in the ring with someone like Grove or Okami. Its not like he can justify anything better right now.
Hathaway fights at 170. I hope they give Leben a solid ground guy like Maia so he loses.Jon Hathaway would be a could be a good fight for him, a step up for the Brit or Leben playing his role as a shutdown gatekeeper.
Leben is slow, a little pudgy, heavy handed guy with a great chin, heart and solid BJJ. A bonafide MMA veteran, he knows the cage, knows the sport. Never looks in great shape, but he's a gamer till the fight ends - win or lose.
THIS is the type of guy I want to see coaching TUF, veterans. I could care less about ratings.
ha ha, common sense prevails. It was fun whilst it lasted, i was just taking the piss out of Leben.He's trolling, please don't feed him.
