    I hope so.

    The UFC could pull the angle that he has been training in jail and question whether he will be ready or not

    I love it! :bowdown:

    What the fuck? In jail?
     
  6. *alexander

    in prison
     
  7. Yeah. when he moved to hawaii he violated his probation. He went and turned himself in so he could get his punishment etc so he could get a visa to go to england to fight.

    Holy shit where was I. That's totally fucked up, but why did he need to go to Hawaii? Did he go to train with Penn and his team? I guess it's not felony or whatever it is, since I didn't think they were allowed out of the country.
     
  9. yeah he just skipped out on his legal requirements. didn't finish his DUI classes.

    Jail sentence changes UFC match
    Chris Leben was sentenced today to 35 days in jail after turning himself in on a probation violation. He will be released on 5/27, because he is being given credit for days served, but this won't leave him with any training time for a fight on 6/7 in London.

    It has been confirmed with UFC the Michael Bisping vs. Chris Leben match is off. Joe Silva had already had a back-up plan in case Leben wasn't able to do the fight. UFC expected Leben to be released today. At this point we can't confirm a replacement.

    actually i think it shows responsibility. When he first moved out to hawaii, his lawyer told him he would be able to complete his dui courses over there, but when he got to hawaii he supposedly had an asshole of a parole officer and they wouldnt let him fininsh the courses.
    So when he heard about his bout in england, he went and turned himself in so he could get the visa. Unfortunately, his plan didnt work and they denied him bail. I doubt this fight will now happen, but i wouldnt be surprised if he still fought anyways.

    I guess it sucks for him, but a slap on the wrist for putting peoples lives in danger isn't what he should have expected. The fact that he would even attempt to drive drunk is something I'll never understand. I guess my hate for him is too great to try to see any reasoning for an act of retardation.

    well he took the chance and it didnt work out for him, im sure he knew this was possible. Still give him credit for that. Why do you hate him that much?

    How long ago was that? I was in an accident in a Geo Tracker....like 15 years ago. :mamoru: We got bumped on the side, almost flipped but it was pretty harmless.

    Gay. I wanted to see leben knock bisping out.

    I lost all respect for that d-bag.
     
  18. a lot of Cagers DUI or come close to it. It's really ridiculously common and accepted.

    Bisping/Quarry would be a nice match-up

    Sucks to hear about your experience, I was also in a geo tracker that flipped but we were 4x4in lol. Hope there was nothing serious, glad you're ok.

    I just dislike him, he's always full of words, but honestly has never impressed me with 1 of his performances. I will like the guy when he humbles, if he doesn't then I hope he continues to get his head smashed in by the worst. I will say even if I liked the guy he still deserves every day in jail. Its not like he was about to get raped like Tim and had no choice but to run from a toe nibbler.

    I wanted to like Leben, but then he had to go and make some post fight speech saying fuck everyone who wasnt a fan of his since the beginning.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::bowdown: Wow I didn't see or hear that, but I would have fallen out of my seat at whatever bar I was at laughing my ass off. Thats an awesome way to connect to your fan base. I really do want to like the guy, but he hasn't changed that much to me since when I first seen him o TUF.

    I would love to see that. :x:

    My buddies ran into Leben on Granville street in Vancouver a year and a half or so. He was smoking a cigarette and was wanting to buy some weed. My one buddy kept calling him 'Chris Koscheck!'.

    Leben is okay in my books. :coolugh:
