UFC 162 Veteran Chris Leben Discusses Move to Alliance, Andrew Craig & More

Jeremy Botter@jeremybotterMMA Senior WriterJune 29, 2013

It's no secret that Chris Leben has endured a wild fighting life. 

From his days on the initial season of The Ultimate Fighter (where Leben was considered the house drunk by other cast members) all the way to his most recent drug suspension for painkillers after losing to Mark Munoz, it's safe to say that Leben hasn't had the easiest time of things. 

But now, Leben returns to the UFC fresh off a long stint on the shelf, and he's made some changes. Leben recently sat down with Bleacher Report at his new home gym Alliance Training Center in San Diego to discuss why he made the move.

Leben also talks about his UFC 162 opponent, Andrew Craig, who sports a 2-1 record since debuting in the UFC last year. 

Check out the video interview above.
