    Jesus, 18% of the normal blood flow through his heart?

    Unfortunate news for the Crippler, hopefully he is able to secure other means of earning an income.

    Shit got my brother the same way. Cocaine addiction leading to enlarged heart and lowered lung and heart function.

    What you mean a decade of steroid, cocaine, pain killer, and alcohol abuse is bad for your heart?

    I guess he could always "drive truck", but with that diagnosis I don't think he could secure a commercial drivers license.
    That really sucks. I always liked Leben.

    Between the combo of the health diagnosis and his drivers abstract, I dont think a commercial license would be much of an option for him.

    Shit, the only one in mma with a worse driving record than Leben is Jon Jones.

    Hope the medication can reverse some of this and he doesn't have to go the transplant route. I guess it's good he signed a bellator contract and found out about this when he did. He could have a gym and just coach. Wasn't he trying to be an on air radio personality before he got in trouble? Maybe he could get a pod cast.

    I hope he survives to live a somewhat full life. That's fucked up.
