Cung Le: Belfort is dangerous but so am I


“I’ll be in San Jose for UFC 139 and I’m fighting Vitor Belfort. I’m very excited and honored to be a part of the UFC. I want to thank Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta for the opportunity and I’m going to fight my heart out. What Vitor says doesn’t bother me. He can talk all he wants. We’ll take care of business on November 19. Let him talk. I don’t like to talk so he can do all the talking. I’ll let him have that job and we will work it out in San Jose. Vitor is very dangerous, but I’m very dangerous too. We have two dangerous guys in the ring and we are going to see which one of us is more dangerous.”

Accomplished striker and former Strikeforce middleweight champion, Cung Le, talks to Heavy.com about his upcoming bout with Vitor Belfort scheduled for UFC 139 in San Jose California.

With Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos moved to the first ever event on FOX the week prior to UFC 139, the rumor is that Belfort vs. Le will serve as the new main event of the evening. Some industry insiders are calling this a mismatch that will get fueled by the UFC hype machine; however Cung seems to think he has a legit chance at derailing the longtime MMA standout, Vitor Belfort.

What say you BJPENN.COM? Can Cung Le impact the UFC’s middleweight division, or will Belfort dismantle him with ease?
