I love how they intentionally used a Dana quote out of context. He was talking about Bobby Voelker, not Leben.

He's so lucky Silva broke his leg and took the spotlight, because until I read this, I totally forgot Leben quit mid fight

I'm no Leben fan, but he's not a quitter; dude was severely concussed at the end of the first round.

I'm really not interested in seeing Leben fight ever again. He's like three years removed from putting up anything resembling something that wasn't just an abysmally poor performance.

He was pretty coherent telling his guys to stop the fight.

Yeah, right after he got done asking them if he got knocked out.

Hall ran a marathon that fight.
Leben should've just stopped chasing him and stood in the middle of the octagon.

Leban should retire before his brain does

He's still only 33, not sure he needs to retire, he just needs lower level competition if he wants to get some wins.

He should start fighting on the UFC Fight Pass thing. Not like among the 150 or so live fights for the year but,, uhh,, in the section where it's all replays of fights from years ago. That'd be a good spot for him.

As I have mentioned before, Lebon just kind of makes me sad. His fighting days at the top level are over. I'm sure he will continue to fight, either in the UFC under the Garcia rule (Dana likes you), or he will get cut and we will see him fighting Mayhem in some regional show. I don't think he has too many other skills to fall back on, so by default, he will continue to fight - especially when the bills start piling up.
