    Chris Leben blames 'ring rust' for UFC 155 loss to 'boring' Derek Brunson - Bloody Elbow

    Four days after the event, "The Crippler" took to Twitter to explain his performance:

    I dont know about that one....it seemed like whenever he really wanted to, he would tag Leben with shots on the feet. Infact, he outstruck Leben on the feet.

    Sounds like the same old jackass to me, making excuses, being disrespectful to the guy that beat him.

    leben is at fault for the fight being boring, Brunson did his job by coming in and winning on like two weeks notice

    Or how about the fact he has just never been that good? Really his only strong suit is that he can take punch and keep coming forward. Guys basically got tried from hitting him so much it left them open or a big shot (Sexyama, Simpson, Martin). And if they didn't tire out he got beat usually in one sided fashion.

    Leben just needs to retire and go away, the sport moved past him a long time ago.

    Chris leben is a beast....just inconsistant.....still want to see him fight Robbie Lawler, Melvin Manholf, or Hector Lombard.....I think either fight would probably split an atom and blow up the arena.....

    "I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
