I like both these guys, for different reasons.
Brian controlled the fight, Chris needs some defense, you can’t just wade in with your chin out on a platter forever and expect to rack up “W”s.

Wow- Leban finally met someone tougher than he is….will be interesting to see who they match Stann up with next…i say give him michael bisping

Terrible referee. That fight could have been stopped several times before the stoppage.

fight looks fixed

PastelXCore Says, in 1-2-2011 at 01:02:56 from    

i agree with juicy fruits about the match up with bisping, rivera isnt a top level enough opponent for bisping and stann and bisping have very similar style imo, and @wtf the referee wasnt terrible at all leben was getting up every time he got hit hard but he kept getting up and when does this ever happen to leben? the referee did a very good job.

Where are the Diaz and Silva vs vera fights at???

Howe Says, in 1-2-2011 at 01:20:33 from    

Leben is *so* outclassed. Always. Terrible fighter, no guard, no technique, nothing. What is this guy doing in the ufc ?

six4seven Says, in 1-2-2011 at 01:22:25 from    

Don’t you guys notice how these refs tend to always give fan favorite fighters more time to try to recover when getting smashed on? Hmmmmmm…

Pocker Says, in 1-2-2011 at 01:27:43 from    

Well the Americans need that Stars and stripes mma figure and Dana has chosen the perfect face to represent that.

ex marine hero turned mma superstar. The day Brian stann becomes champion, is the day i stop watching UFC.

stann beating silva? give me a break folks, but watch it happen.

Impressive from Stann but
The spider will OWN him period.

Wow, I’m surprised. Stann sucks pretty bad and finished Leben. Guess this is down hill for Leben

Justsayin Says, in 1-2-2011 at 04:42:46 from    

Feel bad for Leben, especially considering what he did last year. But, I heard he was hitting the bottle again before this fight and probably didn’t take Stann seriously. Big mistake if so. Good for Stann, though. However, anyone thinking he’ll take out Silva at this point is delusional. Puncher’s chance for real in that match-up . . .

Justsayin Says, in 1-2-2011 at 04:43:53 from    

And, I’m all for Stann v. Bisping.

trousersnake Says, in 1-2-2011 at 05:26:02 from    

Brawler against technical brawler, but Stann had a very good gameplan…love it.

paulwonder Says, in 1-2-2011 at 08:26:13 from    

leben looked tired in this fight was watching some of his training vids for the lead up and tbh overtrained and cutting whaight i think he was fatigued for this fight.

The Mind Says, in 1-2-2011 at 08:53:15 from    

Leben needs some more steriods

Rhobbo Says, in 1-2-2011 at 09:06:17 from    

Yea Devil Doggg!!! Semper Fi!!! Greg Jackson’s got a funky phat kamp! Yea…bring on the big mouth brit twit!!! Stann is da man!

what? Says, in 1-2-2011 at 10:09:04 from    

1 fight with Leben and everyone wants to see Stann vs. Silva??? Retards… Give the guy a break, he’s relatively a new comer.

glenn Says, in 1-2-2011 at 10:14:22 from    

wooooow to beat a tough guy like leben is something,but the diference in this fight was hand speed in mine opinion,leben trhow very wide puch(like hail mary punches)stann has good hand speed for me that was the diffrence of this fight hand speed and of course a little power also help put youre rival to sleep

what? Says, in 1-2-2011 at 10:15:40 from    

Everyone is saying Stann sucks. From what I saw he has some raw untapped potential. Good head to foot vision of incoming attack. (Although Leben is as slow as molasses) Good counters. Good head movement to avoid attacks. Give the guy a break. He just beat a guy who has been in the UFC for a few years.

CRO_GUY Says, in 1-2-2011 at 10:18:00 from    

leben sucks

jasonschwartzman Says, in 1-2-2011 at 11:32:22 from    

mark my words…with 2 wins in 2011, Dana gives Stann a title shot. He loves Stann and his story. Easy to market that angle. All American champion faces the foreign menace (Brazil, Japan) hahahha

mark them!!

GetSome Says, in 1-2-2011 at 12:23:39 from    

As a veteran of Afghanistan, I am amazed at the level of disrespect that is shown towards Brian Stann. What the is your problem with him? He earned a legitimate Silver Star, which I suspect many of you have no idea how it was earned. The fight was not fixed. Your boy Leben, with the poor character, just got his face kicked in. Accept it.

I also saw a lot of trash talking and pathetic comments on another site about the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. You can save your opinion about war unless you have seen it or have a family member there. Little babies sitting on the couch with no martial arts experience is too common in MMA forums.

pope Says, in 1-2-2011 at 12:39:59 from    

leben has been talking about how he has matured and changed as a fighter. but he still wades in head first with his hands down. I don’t care how good your chin is…if someone keeps doing that they are going to get knocked out, and each times it happens it will become easier.

Wolfenstein 3D Says, in 1-2-2011 at 15:52:38 from    

Guy looks like BJ Blazkowicz from Wolfenstein 3D.

rob Says, in 1-2-2011 at 18:05:14 from    

leban REALLY needs to tighten up his boxing

Name Says, in 1-2-2011 at 19:38:14 from    

perfect stoppage IMO.

USMC0341 Says, in 1-2-2011 at 23:21:31 from    

It’s all good getsome, these pogue punks on here are just pissed off they could never hack it in the marines and/or become a legit fighter. Pocker, get a f****** life and then go kill yourself. I guarantee you these punks talking trash about Stann and any other Marine Corps Combat vet are sitting in their mom’s basement at 40 years of age with a big old pot belly and a natty light in their hands.

kadeebe Says, in 1-3-2011 at 01:14:41 from    

stann impressed me with his speed, accuracy and gameplan. A career defining performance. Hope he isn’t fed to the top of the division after this. His chin is solid, his hands and power are solid but I can only see him beating maybe bisping at teh top of the division. Any wrestler he faces will win.

SocratesRising Says, in 1-3-2011 at 10:34:03 from    

Leben is a tough, tough, tough dude. He got completely fall down drunk on TUF the night before they all had to run 5 minutes at level 5, 6 minutes at level 6 and so on up to level 10 on a treadmill. He was the only one who gutted it out..with a hangover to boot. He has a granite chin and yeah..that combination of tough and granite chin will take you a long way. He racked up wins against a ton of top tier UFC guys. Everyone is so quick to dismiss someone after a loss. Lots of respect to Chris Leben. Good job by Stann. With his work ethic and natural talent he should go far. He needs lots of work on the ground though.

Toan Says, in 1-3-2011 at 10:55:52 from    

Stann isn’t a newb if you have watched the ECW at all. But he does need time to acclimate to the UFC. If he gets a title shot I wouldn’t say it’s BS because he was a champ in ECW

Ice360 Says, in 1-3-2011 at 18:28:19 from    


Leben was cocky, entering the fight with no answer to Stann’s power.


jesus the crowbar Says, in 1-4-2011 at 01:10:56 from    

Ha, you bitches have no respect for leben’s power and chin, stann is not tougher, but definately has more skill and won with it, don’t s*** on leben, if he landed one on the button it would be lights out one punch, he is always in entertaining fights, dude’s like a zombie bulldozer, just keeps comin’!

Muay Thai Carebear Says, in 1-5-2011 at 00:17:44 from    

Nobody remembers that Brian Stann was a LHW Belt Holder in WEC?
