Chris Leben, One of only a few OG’s from the first season of TUF still swinging, announced today that he is coming out of retirement. He will fight for The World Bare Knuckle Fighting Federation. On October 20th, his opponent, Phil Baroni. Here’s a picture of his announcement.
Chris Leben last fought back in 2013. He was going to join the Bellator roster and then had a health scare, which forced retirement. Flash forward 5 years later and we are looking at the return of The Crippler. One can only assume that his health has gotten better. Back when he failed that physical Doctors found a severe medical condition that left him with just 18 percent of normal blood flow to his heart.
