Episode #29: Chris “The Crippler” Leben and Courtney Henderson

On Episode #29 of the “Going Down Swinging” podcast, the crew is joined by one local MMA legend, Chris “The Crippler” Leben and in-studio by rising star Courtney Henderson to discuss all things MMA, life and recent news.

If you haven’t heard, MMA legend and UFC Hall-of-Famer Chris Leben joins the show for an exclusive interview discussing the release of his best-selling biography, “The Crippler: Cage Fighting and My Life on the Edge,” what is next for him and what he thinks Dominick Cruz needs to do this Sunday in Boston to earn back his UFC title.  This was a fun interview and Chris holds nothing back.

Also, our good friend, humanitarian, savior of lives, wrestler, budding photographer and overall solid guy, Courtney Henderson joins us in studio to discuss his rise in the local photography community, what it is like to photograph some of MMA’s brightest stars and what he sees happening this Sunday in the Cruz v Dillashaw title fight.  Always good to chat with Courtney.

The guys also jump into a potpourri of topics ranging from Nick Diaz to NFL Playoffs, BJ Penn to GSP, Ronda Rousey to Alan Rickman and everything in between.  Rest in Peace Hans Gruber.

Lastly, it wouldn’t be an episode of “GDS” unless we shared our thoughts on what is going across the big blue marble, threw back a few whiskeys and chopped it up with some off-the-cusp thoughts, banter and opinion.
