Quoteworthy:

"I love to stand up and bang with guys but when that's their strong point and I'm good all around I might as well put him where he's weakest. We knew stand up was his biggest attribute and it's a strategy of war, attack them where they're weakest. To his credit that guy is tough as hell. I've sunk that choke before and a lot of guys would have tapped, I know that for sure I've been around a while. It was pretty deep he's just a tough sucker."

After back-to-back losses inside the Octagon, embattled Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 1 star Chris Leben rights the ship against promotion sophomore Jay Silva at UFC Fight Night 20 on Jan. 11. "The Crippler" returned to a chorus of cheers in Fairfax and dominated the three round affair with his "war strategy." Does the power-puncher still have the chops to hang with today's elite? Or does he need to slowly work his way back up the 185-pound ladder?
