Chris Leben remains hospitalized, video posts from hospital room

Former UFC fighter and Season 1 of The Ultimate Fighter semifinalist Chris Leben asked for positive vibes earlier this month after being hospitalized with breathing issues.

The 41-year-old Leben made a post on social media asking fans and friends to ‘shoot some positive vibes’ his way. Leben indicated that he went to the hospital after developing a cough and shortness of breath after getting COVID.

Leben was admitted to the ICU unit after his situation worsened and was intubated. Two days later he came out of intubation. On Feb. 9, Leben tweeted, “I’m awake.” On Feb. 13, Leben posted a photo of himself weighing in and wrote, “I did not tap.”
