Since the whole incident with the WBKFF, Leben has gone on to sign with the Bare-Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC). However, Forbes now reports that Leben sued the WBKFF for $90,000 in San Diego Superior Court on Monday. Leben alleged that the promotion failed to pay $90,000 of his expected $100,000 purse. He would be paid a down payment of $10,000 which is all that he has receive for his written contractual obligations.
WBKFF owner Tomasz Stankiewicz was sentenced to one year in prison last week for wire fraud in Illinois after a 2018 guilty plea.
