Has Chris Leben really changed?

In honor of Chris Leben's fight with Michael Bisping, here is video of Leben acting like a drunk fool:

The video is dated January of 2008, before the embarassing turn of events that cancelled Bisping/Leben the first time. He now claims that he is a reformed man, doesn't drink and is ready to beat Bisping this weekend at UFC 89 in Birmingham, England. I certainly hope that is true. We have watched Leben's alcohol-induced antics since he was on the first season of the Ultimate Fighter, and quite frankly, it got old. As a fan, I kept waiting for Leben to fulfill his promise, and I couldn't help but wonder if it was the bottle that was holding him back. We shall see this weekend if he really has changed.
