UFC legend Chris Leben managed to kick off his Bareknuckle FC career off with a bang at BKFC 5 last night.
Moving to 2-0 as a bareknuckle boxer, Leben has managed to overturn his late-career decline with some newfound success in the ring.
The Crippler had not posted a win inside the UFC octagon since 2011, having gone 0-4 in his last four outings before hanging up his gloves in 2013.
Known to fans of mixed martial arts for his incredibly game fighting style, his stint on The Ultimate Fighter season 1 and, of course, his legendary war with Akiyama, Leben has been a popular figure for over a decade and a half.
Taking on Justin Baesman on the BKFC 5 main-card, Leben took just 25 seconds to get the job done, rushing in on his man and putting him away in characteristically violent fashion.
