Chris Leben defeats Aaron Simpson via TKO in the Second RoundPosted on June 19, 2010, 09:52 PM by Anton Gurevich
Chris “The Crippler” Leben managed to defeat Aaron Simpson for the first time in his career, in a classic brawling performance. Leben earned his 10th victory inside the Octagon, successfully bouncing back from a bad streak in the UFC.
Known for his exaptional wrestling and knockout power, Simpson failed to execute his gameplan, looking overtrained during the most parts of the fight. The A-Train looked like a shadow of the fighter that a won a Split Decision against Tom Lawlor, after a fantastic display of heart and determination. Simpson’s failure to work his advantages in this match-up allowed Leben to unleash his trademarked wild swings at Aaron Simpson.
The referee Josh Rosenthal had to stop this contest via TKO at 4:16 minutes of Round 2, after Chris Lebel landed a series of powerful shots on Aaron Simpson. Leben may face a tougher competition in his next fight inside the Octagon, as “The Crippler” has still plenty to prove to MMA fans around the World.
