Doctors are very aware of this fact, yet prescribe anyway, not usually offering any kind of help for the patient when the prescription runs out. This guy has been kicking ass and getting ass kicked for years, for a living, and we like watching it. Do the guy a favor, send him some well wishes….

Yes, again. I take percs from time to time for a chronic disc bulge with sciatica. That stuff just takes the pain away. It also makes you drowsy. Bad decision making taking it before a fight. He must’ve had some really bad pain in order to risk getting caught like that. Do they take his fight purse away too?

I mean, I know that fighters get suspended post-fight for receiving injuries most of the time, but who issues the suspensions for drug use? The Athletic Commission or Zuffa? Just curious. :l

I understand addiction…but I don’t sympathize, I’ve dealt with too many piece of s*** junkies in my time. it’s up to you. clean you’re f***** act up or be a failure.

For the beating he took, and takes in most fights , he should be on oxy

My buddy broke his back, he’s actually alright now, he can walk, run , lift a little, but he was given them to stop pain. He gave me one just because and I gotta tell you that s*** makes you feel great. I was in Uni at the time and went to class on it. Got a two phone numbers and invited to some Taiwanese Halloween party. Literally you’re just relaxed and pretty much carefree. I’m glad I didn’t do that s*** again though because it kind of scared me how great I felt on it.

Who ever fights Chael next should have the option of taking what ever he roids he took and see how the fight turns out.

you’re an idiot and should NOT talk about things which you know NOTHING about. Taking Percocets will NOT allow you to “walk through a punch” you moron. In fact they make you drowsy, weak… and once you get hooked – you’re a goddam mess. I think you are referring to PCP. Either way, you should shut your mouth instead of propagating total falsehoods.

Vicodin (hydrocodone) is to primary care medicine as M & Ms are to Halloween trick or treats. The abuse of these drugs is propagated by many if not every medical practitioner and is the cause of many deaths by overdose. Addiction is common. Leben is just a high profile example of a very common problem effecting millions of people in the U.S.. In 2009 there was an FDA push to ban these drugs. They should at the very least be highly restricted.

Something to consider with pain-killers is that they can may you “impervious” to pain. If your nervous system/pain receptors are jacked you may be able to walk through punch (makes me think of Scarface in the movie-LOL).

Hope Leben gets his life together…seems like a cool guy that you don’t want to have a shitty life…

Thats BRILLIANT!!

They’re NOT steroids! They’re painkillers! Infact I’d say they’re more performance impeding than enhancing having just stopped taking them myself after surgery. They can make you feel really sick
