Round 1: Leben opens with a body kick and Stann counters with a low kick that made me cringe. Leben walks in and eats a few brutal shots from Stann, and Leben backs up. Both fighters come together in a clinch and Stann lands a few solid knees to the body. Both fighters collar tie each other, and briefly begin ‘hockey punching’ each other. A huge body kick by Stann stuns Leben and he tries to walk forward. In the process Leben eats 3 or 4 punches, followed by an explosive hook from Stann that drops Leben! Stann rushes in to finish but Leben survives. Again Stann cracks Leben with more shots, followed by a vicious knee that crumbles Leben to the Octagon floor! Stann keeps punching and the fight is stopped! What a huge win for Brian Stann.
