Quoteworthy:

"I'm going to fight my heart out. I love to stand up and bang with guys. This is a make it or break it for me. I have to lay it all on the line. When it comes Monday night, I'm going to go out there with bad intentions, I'm going to go out there with the belief that if I don't win, I go home. I'm not in the UFC anymore and that's not what I want. I need to win. I have to win. Expect some fireworks Monday night."

Embattled Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 1 star Chris Leben hopes to get himself back into the win column against promotion sophomore Jay Silva at UFC Fight Night 20 after back-to-back losses inside the Octagon. "The Crippler" had returned from a nine-month steroids suspension (following his defeat to Michael Bisping at UFC 89) only to get submitted by Jake Rosholt (arm-triangle choke) in front of a hometown crowd at UFC 102: "Couture vs. Nogueira" last August. Leben understands the dangers of going 0-3 under the Zuffa banner but could turn things around with a highlight reel knockout -- the same finish that helped propel him to notoriety earlier in his career. Does the power-puncher still have the chops to hang with today's elite? Or has the curtain lowered on a UFC career that spans 14 fights?
