Chris Leben capped off his combat sports career with a stunning first round knockout victory over Quentin Henry at Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship : Knucklemania. The former UFC star, who has knockout victories over the likes of Wanderlei Silva and Alessio Sakara, made the switch to Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, after a return to MMA never materialized (as he had a heart condition back then). And now, he leaves the promotion, going out on top!
Speaking at the post-fight interview, Leben said that was exactly how he wanted to finish his career. He also thanked the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship for giving him the opportunity.
‘I wanted somebody that was going to swing like a motherf**ker at me and I knew Quentin was going to do that‘
At the post-fight interview, Chris Leben was quoted as saying, “What a f**king way to finish a career right there. I wanted somebody that was going to swing like a motherf**ker at me and I knew Quentin was going to do that. That’s how I wanted to finish my career. Thank you to Quentin and thank you to BKFC for that opportunity.”
Twitter reacts to Leben’s knockout!
Tatiana Suarez was quick to acknowledge!
Beautiful way indeed!
