From the Vimeo description:
In this series, we follow UFC Legend Chris “The Crippler” Leben as he makes his return to professional prize fighting after being diagnosed with a severe heart condition and forced into early retirement. In the two years since, he’s forgone the destructive lifestyle that he was publicly known for, become a family man, and adopted a strict protocol of herbs and supplements that’s reversed his heart disease. Amazed with his progress, doctors have medically cleared him to fight for the World Bare Knuckle Fighting Federation taking on former UFC slugger, Phil “The New York Badass” Baroni. In this 3 part series you’ll get an up close look as Chris Leben continues his “fighter” storyline inside the ring, and more importantly in his life outside.
