Chris Leben was one of the most popular UFC fighters of his generation. Nobody will claim that ‘The Crippler’ had the most skills but he always fought his heart out. Leben allegedly once asked White how he should pay his taxes after one paycheck. Then the UFC President said that he’d deal with it personally.
Unfortunately, he didn’t live up to his word and left Leben in a hole. White shamelessly told FOX Sports that Leben had years of back taxes to pay. It didn’t matter that he said that he would help his so-called friend. Leben should have hired an accountant but White messed up badly.
