"The Crippler" yesterday (June 21, 2012) tweeted a pic of his newly-earned Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blue Belt, awarded under Sidney Silva, himself a black belt under Professor Gutenberg Melo.
Leben is currently serving a one year suspension by the UFC after failing a post-fight drug test (Oxycodone and Oxymorphine) following his loss to Mark Munoz at UFC 138 last November in Birmingham, England. It was the second time Leben returned dirty, the first coming after his unanimous decision loss to Michael Bisping following UFC 89 back in October 2008.
Video of Leben (via The Underground) getting beaten like a rug under the gauntlet of whipping belts, after the jump.
