UFC 125 Results: Brian Stann finishes Chris LebenPosted on January 1, 2011, 10:59 PM by Anton Gurevich
All-American Brian Stann improved his positions in the UFC Middleweight ranks, after viciously knocking out Chris "The Crippler" Leben in the First Round. Stann was the more precise fighter from the first second of the fight, connecting with Leben's head on several occasions. Leben went out with his trademark "all-out" approach, which proved itself as a bad bet against someone like Brian Stann.
Stann dropped Leben two times in the middle of Round 1, as Josh Rosenthal gave "Crippler" more and more opportunities for a comeback. But then it was one lethal knee that sent Leben down to the canvas for the third time, without any chance to stand back on his feet. Stann improves his MMA record to 10-3, and is a first fighter since Anderson Silva to finish Leben via Strikes.
