If you asked me what the quickest knockout of my life was, I would be lying if I told you that it was Wanderlei Silva in twenty-seven seconds. My name isn’t Chris Leben, nor do I have multi-colored hair. We both have an enormous amount of tattoos, so in that sense we’re related. The Crippler is a horrible name if you’re handicapped. However, if your job is to temporarily make others handicap through the use of aggressive force, then it’s perfect.
No one out there should trivialize Chris Leben and his twenty-fight career in the UFC. If Chris Leben knew where you live, he would probably knock on your door and offer you a casserole of filled with rough-necking.
The guy has been fighting longer than you’ve been an MMA fan, and in this Fight! Magazine interview, he gives a pretty fair assessment on how Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman will go down at UFC 162.
