Chris Leben, 41, Former UFC Star, Serious Covid Battle

Updated: Mar 13, 2022

Chris Leben is a former UFC star and was a contestant on the reality show "The Ultimate Fighter". Before contracting Covid, he had recently opened up a combat sports gym on Pacific Beach in San Diego.

In mid-January, Chris contracted Covid for a second time. He had pretty mild symptoms and thought he was over with it. A week later, on February 1, 2022, he was hospitalized and developed serious lung issues and pneumonia.

This was his first public announcement about being hospitalized.

He goes dark for a few days on Facebook and then shares these posts. He "didn't tap"!

On February 20th, while still hospitalized, Chris shared this video. He states how lucky he is in life and how he survived this. He's not out of the woods yet.

Then, on March 5th, he was finally out of the hospital and shared this video. "1% better every day".

On March 6th, he shared his story about what happened to him medically and the personal journey he went through. He does advise that he was unvaccinated.

We hope you get better Chris! Please advocate for your followers to get vaccinated.

Also, we've had some messages asking about Vaxman. All is well with Vaxman. He is traveling and HCAz had already planned to help him out for a couple of weeks. He'll be back shortly!

Get vaccinated. Get your booster.
