Everything about this is bad.

It's like raisins in a salad.

I've never been more excited for anything in my entire life. Chris Leben is hands down my favorite fighter of all time. #WarCatSmasher #Doitifyourebad #Diegostryingtosleep

This sounds like a great idea. Guy with physical health issues and mental health issues signs on to fight in a bare knuckle fight. Pick which fighter has the issues. Both are in no shape to be fighting.

Man @mbach your right but @jaco i agree with him too.
I always liked leben and im loving the bare knuckle boxing events they should b on here for picks.
That bec rowlings fight was awesome! She will b back in the ufc soon if she keeps fighting like that.
I even liked baroni when i first seen him destroy i think it was dave menet.
I'd say great for the fans like me who get to watch.
Maybe not so great for the fighters. I suspect alot of damage in that fight.

P.s.@fish i get the feeling your tapology soul mate bruce is the one giving u down votes for nothing.
He must blame u for his suspension. Or he's mad u didn't get suspended too.

Guaranteed Leben knocks out Baroni with the first left hand he lands.

@Free if you like bareknuckle boxing, check out this documentary if you haven't seen it. Follows a bunch of Gypsy bareknuckle fighters ( Fair fighters).

Most of them fight like drunks at barbecues, but it's very interesting and entertaining all the

I'm not dumping on either guy for taking the fight. It's their job to fight. I just won't be watching.

Yeah Free, I'm pretty sure he's downvoting me. I don't think it's because of the ban, it's more likely it's owing to the fact I beat him on picks for the latest DW contender series card, which isn't supposed to happen because apparently he beats me every card and I never pick the contender series fights because I'm a ****et casual.

I don't mind.He can downvote me all he likes as long as he keeps his mouth shut and isn't hurling a tirade of drunk abuse during the chats for the live cards.

It's a bit of shame really, he's actually good to talk to when he isn't being a *******, but those moments seem to be few and far between.
