UFC middleweight fighter Chris “The Crippler” Leben has experienced his fair share of controversy, both in and out of the cage; having tested positive for performance enhancing drugs following a 2008 bout with Michael Bisping and getting into trouble for driving under the influence on more than one occasion.
Though he recently had another brush with the law concerning operating a motor vehicle while possibly intoxicated, Leben had a breakthrough year in 2010. He posted three wins in a row, including a unanimous decision over Jay Silva, a TKO win over Aaron Simpson and a submission win over Yoshihiro Akiyama just a few short weeks after the Simpson bout.
Now heading into 2011, Leben will attempt to keep at least his in-cage ship on course as he takes on Brian Stann in the co-main event of the upcoming UFC 125: Resolution fight card, which will be going down on January 1st at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
