UFC 125: Chris Leben doesn't have to go home, but he's gotta get the heck up outta here

Quoteworthy:

"My plan is to go to Vegas and go to work. I don't have an after-party planned. I'm not staying in Vegas. I told the folks at UFC that I want the first flight out of there. I know I'm human, I know I've made mistakes. That's why, as soon as I'm done fighting, I'm getting on a red-eye plane. That will show people that Chris Leben is not this wild party guy who is out to cause trouble."

What happens in Vegas doesn't necessarily stay in Vegas. Middleweight brawler Chris Leben is booking the first flight out of "Sin City" following his UFC 125 bout against Brian Stann this Saturday night (Jan.1) at the MGM Grand. "The Crippler," who was recently arrested under suspicion of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) after he crashed his car on a slick Hawaii highway, is trying to avoid putting himself in a situation that jeopardizes his clean slate. But would a crushing loss to the "All American" make him reconsider his post-fight plans?
