"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.

Or does he need to slowly work his way back up the 185-pound ladder?
