Former UFC fighter Chris Leben made the final walk of his combat career last night (Fri., Feb. 5, 2021) at BKFC 16: “KnuckleMania” live on PPV from RP Funding Center in Lakeland, Florida, when “The Crippler” steamrolled MMA veteran Quentin Henry with a vicious first-round knockout.

Henry certainly came to fight, but Leben’s shots always hit harder and that’s exactly what happened. Once Henry got inside and the two fighters started to land knuckles to face it was Leben who scored the final blow. Henry collapsed to the canvas and the fight was called.

Check out the highlights below:

If this in fact Leben’s final fight it was quite the sendoff for the 40-year-old veteran. Still, “Crippler” will be better remembered for his knockout performances under the UFC banner, which includes finishes over Wanderlei Silva, Jorge Santiago, Terry Martin, and Alessio Sakara.
