Retired Chris Leben Doing The Opposite Of Cutting Weight

One of the stars of the original Ultimate Fighter, Chris Leben, is trying to transition into acting and has already had some decent roles.  Chris isn’t going to be playing any pretty boy character and wants to add some weight for the big screen.  I’m sure this diet is much more fun than the one he was on when making 185 lbs as this is all only one days worth of food.  Leben...

Who hit Chris Leben hardest during his career?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Chris Leben was hit hardest by Brian Stann or Anderson Silva. I mean, both of those fights ended in mere seconds afterall, even when Leben has one hell of a chin. Then again, Mike Swick took out Leben early in his career, so I don’t even know. Maybe we should switch over to Kenny and Bas to find out exactly who punched Leben the...
