UFC 125 co-headliner Chris Leben will not be partying this weekend in Las Vegas following his fight against Marine standout, Brian Stann. Leben would like to prove his sincerity to the sport and get away from his reputation of being a party animal from the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter” and recent DUI arrests.
“My plan is to go to Vegas and go to work. I don’t have an after-party planned. I’m not staying in Vegas. I told the folks at UFC that I want the first flight out of there. I know I’m human, I know I’ve made mistakes. That’s why, as soon as I’m done fighting, I’m getting on a red-eye plane. That will show people that Chris Leben is not this wild party guy who is out to cause trouble.”
