Chris Leben Hopes To Crush Brian Stann At UFC 125

Chris Leben is riding a three fight winning steak heading into his January 1st match up with Brian Stann at UFC 125 and the former TUF contestant is questioning his placement in the bout as he feels he should have had a bigger named opponent than the war hero Stann:

“I was a little bit surprised. Akiyama gets to go fight Bisping, and I get Brian Stann. So, you know, it was a little bit tough. If he wins it builds him up, and if I win that's four wins in a row for me, and then who knows? Sometimes they'll do things and I don't have a clue why they did them, to be honest with you. Hopefully I go out and I crush Brian Stann and I get in their (UFC's) ear a little more about it, and some things will happen.”
