Hate to see lay and pray fighters win… Munoz is boring as hell.

JoeDog Says, in 11-5-2011 at 19:07:37 from    

Munoz kicked Leben’s tough ass.

Leben squezzeing with a bloody face look was super creepy,I still love you Chris!!!! F*** you Munoz,Anderson will anally r*** you !!!!!!!

FUKKKKK dammit I hate watchin him lose.

bigFan Says, in 11-5-2011 at 19:23:02 from    

the wrecking machine.. pow pow

Ryan Says, in 11-5-2011 at 19:24:02 from    

Munoz looks more & more skilled each every fight .. He deserves a title shot imo ! He has the heart to take it all … BEAST

I’ve never seen LeBen call it quits for any reason

Rocco55 Says, in 11-5-2011 at 19:24:16 from    

Shouldn’t have went for those chokes Chris, just should’ve smashed him in the face. let’s be honest Leben gassed out. He never would’ve made it another round or three if his eye wasn’t cut

azzy09 Says, in 11-5-2011 at 19:34:34 from    

even though leben lost. we all know munoz is a boring fighter !lmao. and leben made this an exciting fight !

assman Says, in 11-5-2011 at 19:43:31 from    

Munoz is legit. Can’t really call that lay n pray, he was working.

He should be matched with Bisping/Miller winner.

Scottc Says, in 11-5-2011 at 19:45:26 from    

It sux that the fight was stopped due to an injury but it was a friggin fun fight up until that point.Munoz dropped more bombs than a B-1 bomber.Leben comes to fight every time and he makes his opponents fight on his level.Get em next time Chris.

cigronne Says, in 11-5-2011 at 19:48:30 from    

I agree with Barn, him along with Chris Lyttle and those old-school bomb-throwers alikes are gonna be long missed when they retire, the new-school mma comes too busy with perfect athletes with perfect bodies, wrestlers following tactics and risking nothing, you guys will see as these brawlers and plain punchers the old school fighters will be very soon missed. Sad, Chris Leben for President

Ryan Says, in 11-5-2011 at 19:59:20 from    

LeBen Took Some Shots! Geeeezzzz
Munoz has some Heavy Hands 2~~
LeBen Might have the toughest chin in mma

stu11 Says, in 11-5-2011 at 20:05:17 from    

Can’t see or got gassed?

Clemmit Says, in 11-5-2011 at 20:09:31 from    

Good call assbandit, i think he would defeat bisping though, he’s a stronger puncher and a much stronger wrestler.

Stay Blessed

Kowe Says, in 11-5-2011 at 20:23:00 from    

Watching the fight objectively, Munoz was actually doing work. Going to the body and to the head. That was not lay and pray. that cut didn’t just magically appear. not all wrestlers are about lay n pray. some still do ground n pound.

Tempted Says, in 11-5-2011 at 20:44:52 from    

He could see, he just wanted to quit. That was absolutely NOT doctor stoppage, it was tapping to strikes. Leben gassed, got the hell beat out of him and quit. He took an ass whooping, nothing to be ashamed of. Leben will never be a contender. But at least he usually puts on a show.

onetwo Says, in 11-5-2011 at 20:49:14 from    

i dont see how anyone could call that lay and pray that was ground and pound munoz beat down chris leben and made him quit and leben is no quitter

Scottc Says, in 11-5-2011 at 20:50:35 from    

Cigronne i disagree with you.I think the opposite is happening with new school MMA athletes.They have to be so proficient in all aspects and boxing is a skill that is a MUST HAVE now.Just look at Nick Diaz,Junior Dos Santos,Frankie Edgar and even GSP who developed his skills with Freddie Roach.

Uncle_whoop_ya _ass Says, in 11-5-2011 at 21:03:42 from    

lay and pray ?? what fight are those haters watching . split open his face boring ?? i like both fighters , and they were having a good fight trying to land bombs and position to chokes or mounts to land better shots . lay and pray . u need to think b4 you right stupid s*** like that . some comments on here blow my mind , obviously keyboard jockies who never been in a one on one fight in there life . losers . Good fight , why was leben so gassed out ?

jonesin’ Says, in 11-5-2011 at 21:23:45 from    

The fight was officially ruled as corner stoppage not doctor stoppage. After the second round ended Chris and his cornerman were talking about his vision and they determined he could not see. Chris Leben would never tap to strikes, lol. Not a boring fight at all. Munoz has some HEAVY arm punches, reminds me of Fedor’s G&P a bit with the power. Leben should try to not take so many huge shots to the face, after all thats why he lost because he let Munoz punish him too much.

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 11-5-2011 at 21:27:24 from    

He made him quit….

BJJ7777 Says, in 11-5-2011 at 22:03:56 from    

Munoz put on an incredible performance tonight. That was ground domination 101, not lay and pray. It was simply ground control and pounding on the ground. Leben was good and aggressive as usual but his conditioning betrayed him. Good fight. As always, thanks Bruno for the super quick posts !!!

T’Challa Says, in 11-5-2011 at 22:20:32 from    

Book Munoz Vs Sonnen cuz Anderson will not fight Fael..

Shredded Coconut Says, in 11-5-2011 at 22:21:48 from    

No matter what Leben is always one punch away from winning the fight.

tobes Says, in 11-5-2011 at 22:24:08 from    

Leben didnt ‘gas’ because of conditioning. he took a hellacious beating which is exhausting to endure. props to both guys… but munoz needs another win to call out A. Silva after he lost to Okami. Munoz vs the loser of Bisping/Miller fight would be good to see.

Also, any of you crazies thinking Munoz is a Lay and Pray fighter are insane. I personally prefer standup but Munoz is one of the most exciting fighters in the division.

hugemidget Says, in 11-5-2011 at 23:08:37 from    

never seen anyone take a shot in the face better than Leben

ryan Says, in 11-5-2011 at 23:51:47 from    

munoz + miller Train together …
I can’t picture them wanting to fight each other

mmaboxingfan2 Says, in 11-6-2011 at 00:01:50 from    

no you guys cant say munoz is boring at all. He did not lay and pray. Munoz landed really big shots when he was on top and didnt stop for one second he stayed active. This was answesome fight and chris leben is tough as nails. There was ground and pound and submissions. If you want to see boring ground its gsp. Munoz sorta has a ground game like chael sonnen but chael is better.

me Says, in 11-6-2011 at 00:02:16 from    

knees to a three point opponent will even the card between strikers and wrastlers.

mmaboxingfan2 Says, in 11-6-2011 at 00:05:50 from    

leben still needs to work on his takedown defence I thought it was better but I guess it isnt.

MarcMayhem610 Says, in 11-6-2011 at 00:18:41 from    

Lay and pray MY ASS. That was some classic ground n’ pound at its finest. Don’t bash fighters for what they do best. Exciting or not, Munoz did what he had to in order to pick up the W while raising some eyebrows in the process. I do agree that he needs one more fight with a legit contender before calling out the Spider. Stann, Sonnen or Bisping. Bring it!

mmaboxingfan2 Says, in 11-6-2011 at 00:20:34 from    

leben does not fight good in the uk. In this fight he was so god damn gassed I think he should fight at 205 or instead of cutting all your weight in one day spread throughout 2 weeks. Chris also needs to work on his td defence. Having one day to cut 15-20 lbs doesnt make sense chris.He lost this fight plainly because he gassed

mesonto Says, in 11-6-2011 at 00:43:12 from    

Guess I am not alone, I love watching Leben fight. Wish he had have destroyed Munoz.

Drew Says, in 11-6-2011 at 01:00:36 from    

Munoz has some vicious ground ‘n pound when he’s able to get on top. Still, there are a lot of weaknesses that will get exposed against an elite fighter like Silva. He got a lot of shots stuffed, wound up in several choke attempts, and let Leben up from dominant position. I still don’t think Munoz sets up shots well and it’s going to be really hard to close the distance against Silva. I still believe Sonnen is the only guy in the weight division who can beat Silva.

keyboardcowboy Says, in 11-6-2011 at 01:07:12 from    

yeah, even tho i think a cut doesnt mean u beat s***, he was still doing work. wasnt lay n pray.

stonedwheat Says, in 11-6-2011 at 01:24:09 from    

That’s some sick GnP…looked like Fedor in his prime

@MMA Says, in 11-6-2011 at 00:28:05 from    

Munoz killed that dude. I’m a big fan of Chris Leben, but he couldn’t keep up with 1) Munoz pace and 2) Munoz power. Beast Mode! If Leben didn’t quit, he might have gotten his head blown up.

mamamama Says, in 11-6-2011 at 01:50:06 from    

you moron what lay and pray he gnp the s*** outta him. go watch k1 or thaiboxing only if you just want a standup. god your so stupid my anus gets dumber when I read your comment.

I dont he’s ready for anderson. I think he needs one more fight to go. but if he can put anderson on his ass like that…mamma mia. Anderson will fight chael first anyway.
Great fight Munoz is a beast in gnp

Moostachio Says, in 11-6-2011 at 02:06:23 from    

Yeah, sux watching that boring lay and pray Munoz guy. Can someone explain it to me though cause I’m always missing something. But how does his boring lay and pray style always get dudes knocked out and blind in one eye? Hmmm, guess it’s just a mystery.

grapefight Says, in 11-6-2011 at 02:02:59 from    

1st off TYVM Bruno. you’re the best.
2nd. awesome fight…Muoz is a beast.

that my friend is not LnP…that is pure beatdown. IMHO….LnP would be GSP. ^_^

KRUsouljahz Says, in 11-6-2011 at 02:26:51 from    

munoz is the most boring fighter. hes making me hate wrestling

Hey Beavis Says, in 11-6-2011 at 02:28:06 from    

Good job for the Filipino from Valley Joe. BTW are you going to put up the barn burner between Angulo and Kirkland? I’ve only seen the first round and it was like HAGLER/HEARNS!!!

ETK Says, in 11-6-2011 at 03:39:38 from    

They were both taking beatings.
See saw battle.
War of attrition.
Leben quit on his stool.
Stamina should have been a major agenda when training for Munoz.

Rick Says, in 11-6-2011 at 03:40:42 from    

Holy s***, that was a fight!
After they wiped the blood away, it stopped bleeding. But he kept saying, “I cant see,” so there could be eye damage or maybe he just quit.I don’t mean that in a bad way, he fought like a Lion but sometimes when you know your done, your done.He took an enormous amount of temple shots.
Rogan said, “Uncork some Bombs.” : )

psyopus Says, in 11-6-2011 at 04:16:06 from    

I love when people cry cos fighters “lay and pray” its MMA if u dont get what it means quit watching it.. leben is a bad man but munoz pulled out all the stops he knew he didnt wana get hit by leben to many times and he didnt he stuck to his game plan and had some really nice shots and if u say lay and pray u didnt watch the fight at all Leben didnt allow him to lay on him he made him fight for the win Awesome fight to both fighters!!!

ash Says, in 11-6-2011 at 05:42:00 from    

lol that’s not lay and pray. that’s an ass whooping. leben got his face busted up and quit as a result of it.

how can you call that lay n’ pray?

munoz is sloppy on the feet still and his takedowns seem so predictable.. i dont think he’s ready for the top guys yet (chael and anderson). he might be able to beat vitor though

mk Says, in 11-6-2011 at 06:00:22 from    

@mata….Munoz lay and prey? really? Munoz is amazing on the ground and he can strike….maybe you should stick to watching back yard brawls on youtube.

Monster Says, in 11-6-2011 at 07:07:53 from    

That was an entertaining fight! Leben’s got a chin of steel and he puts on good pressure. The crowd was all against Munoz and their cheers must’ve added pressure against the Filipino as well, yet he still managed to ‘lay and pray’ a bunch of ground and pound all over Leben’s face until it bled. I love watching ground and pound.
Thanks for always uploading the goods, Bruno.

PitfighterZ Says, in 11-6-2011 at 09:30:15 from    

Hey, BRUNO: Thanks for the awesome job!
Bruno: Just what you asked for. http://www.mmatko.com/terry-etim-vs-edward-faaloloto-fight-video-ufc-138/

I believe Leben couldn’t see from the left eye. Bot the doctor and someone in his corner did some tests and he didn’t react at all. Of course he could still fight with only one eye, he was actually doing well after the doctor checked his eye, but he realized that he was only going downhill from there. Why risk further damage and miss the next paycheck?
Munoz v. Sonnen would be a good fight, as Bisping already has a fight coming. Stann is coming out of a loss, and he already beat Maia and lost to Okami… tough spot. Belfort could also be an option. He needs more fights before taking on A. Silva, but it looks like everyone is busy already.

armdaddy5691 Says, in 11-6-2011 at 10:24:29 from    

Good fight, both guys throwing bombs. Damn those were some hellatious body shots from Munoz while in Leben’s guard.

g Says, in 11-6-2011 at 10:48:23 from    

two times in the corner while they are checking his eye he says I’m Tired. Gassed and cut. Fun fight to watch.

AAA Says, in 11-6-2011 at 13:30:58 from    

Leben looks like a circus freak.

iron_cobra Says, in 11-6-2011 at 13:36:05 from    

Leben could have gonna another round. Safety is a good thing but if they let Joe Stevenson keep fighting Penn that cut seems tiny. On the other hand it seem that Munoz look tired of connecting and not phasing Leben. Makes me wonder what if…

JJ Says, in 11-6-2011 at 13:38:37 from    

I don’t understand how someone can call it lay and pray. Munoz was dropping bombs on Leben’s face there, getting positions to throw more. There was no stalling – just a great, great old school all out war

tally2312 Says, in 11-6-2011 at 14:24:46 from    

they need to allow knees to downed opponents sick of wrestlers getting that advantage…makes for boring fights

Tempdeisel Says, in 11-6-2011 at 15:33:59 from    

Its unfortunate that some people don’t appreciate the ground game. They are never happy unless two people are standing right in front of each other swinging recklessly until one gets KTFO. This was not a lay and pray victory, those were heaaavy shots leben took. I agree with others and think it was basically Leben tapping to strikes. People that can’t appreciate a victory like this should probably avoid watching MMA so they aren’t disappointed.

Patrick N Says, in 11-6-2011 at 16:42:42 from    

LMAO LAY AND PRAY. More like Lay and Leben praying bombs stop dropping on his face. Watch a rashas lay and pray and watch this fight and tell me it’s the same thing

Nambo Says, in 11-6-2011 at 18:25:35 from    

lay and pray? and where did Leben’s damaged eye and bloody come from? Hopes and dreams? You guys are being way too biased. Munoz was dropping bombs and did far more damage. And I don’t think Munoz will fight A. Silva, considering that they train together.

Nambo Says, in 11-6-2011 at 18:31:31 from    

never mind……i didn’t realize that he pretty much called out Silva after this fight

Les Is More Says, in 11-6-2011 at 21:32:11 from    

Bruno, can you re-up this? Link is down. Was hoping to see the interview with Rogan at the end but Spike cut it. Thanks!

Bruno: Fixed with Silva callout.

casyboy Says, in 11-6-2011 at 22:15:51 from    

the headlock will be the downfall of humanity… looked like white belt jiu-jitsu, leben looked stiffer than a corpse, shouldve kept it standing and used that killer plum leben has, munoz didnt want any of that, stay off the bottom with munoz, he made leben quit…lost count on the failed guilitene attemps witch put him right where he didnt want to be.

Justsayin Says, in 11-7-2011 at 00:15:18 from    

Ass whoopin’. Chael and Anderson would both beat Munoz at this point, though. Wonder if there’ll be some ‘Shad-Jones type fallout from him calling out Silva. Prolly not, haha . . .

Zipperhead Says, in 11-7-2011 at 07:02:19 from    

Good God Gurdie what a Gash!

Eginho Says, in 11-7-2011 at 09:46:48 from    

Thats why i sayyy Elbows/Cuts end GREAT fights….ughhh TAKE ELBOWS OUT!!!!

survival lobby Says, in 11-7-2011 at 12:40:23 from    

Leben quit. Munoz looked sloppy, getting his TD’s countered by the same headlock over and over again by a guy with sub par wrestling. Nice body shots though, those probably took the fight out of chris.

conspiracy_sucks Says, in 11-7-2011 at 14:33:22 from    

how is it that some of ya say gsp lays and prays if in his last couple of fights he has just been whoopin peoples ass on stand up he destroyed kos..shields.. and the others he destroys on the ground..he doesnt lay on any1 for 5 min a round and do nothing these guys come out with their bodies broken up..this sport isnt just about stand up obviously all ya people who say its lay and pray are just those who want to see a stand up fight

SinkTheHooks Says, in 11-7-2011 at 21:26:54 from    

Leben is the toughest guy in MMA and if he says he cant see ill take his word for it, Mark looked smaller..Idk great fight though

jrhodes Says, in 11-16-2011 at 23:32:10 from    

Mark beat Leben with his heavy hands, and conditioning. I feel that Chris probably could have made it out to the 3rd round, but he gassed from several guillotine attempts, and a pounding, made the decision for him to stop.
Leben is one of the toughest fighters in the MMA, but Munoz showed that he was tougher. Great fight, and we haven’t seen the last of both of these great fighters…
