Cung Le Wants “Super-Mega Fights”

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le (9-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) isn’t ready to hang up the gloves just yet.

The 40-year-old Sanshou specialist, Le, put himself into title talks after scoring a November knockout victory over former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin.

At one point, there was even speculation that UFC middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva and his camp wanted to set-up a bout with Le.

The Anderson Silva fight never materialized, as the UFC decided to pit the middleweight champion against Chris Weidman this July at UFC 162.

That news didn’t phase Le, as he is still chomping at the bit and ready to step back into the octagon.

His one stipulation? The bigger, the better.

“Right now, it’s just one fight at a time, if that (a fight with Anderson Silva) does come up. If I keep my win streak on. Then I would be up for it. Other than that I want the super-mega fights. It was definitely fun being the main event in China and headlining for the first for UFC in China. I felt like if I did end on that note, it’d be great. But when you have a great performance like that, being injured … it all worked out good.”


Who would you like to see Cung Le fight next? Let’s hear it Penn Nation!

    Bisping would be a good high volume striking match that would force Cung to get better with his cardio. Lombard could be interesting. I wonder if he could bully Cung? I could see Cungs style being good against Lombards aggressiveness.
    I’d like to see him against Uriah also ninja style for sure.

        He’s talking about the Uriah hall that lost on TUF. 757 you are the only one that said Faber DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Faber is part of the midget league 5’3″ and UNDER. Yes I stood right next to Faber and all his MIDGETS buddies from TEAM ALPHA MIDGET. Benevidez is barely 5’0, Mendes is 5’2″, Faber maybe 5’3.5 with his elevator shoes on. I’m only 5’11 and my two buddies that were with me were within an inch or so of myself and we all had close to a foot height on ALL the TEAM ALPHA MIDGET boys. They sure do stand up straight with good posture and walk around with their heads tilted back. It almost reminded of a group of ducks walking out of a lake one after another as they follow Faber everywhere and they walk around the crowd bumping their heads on everyone in crowds elbows. You would have to see it as its totally hilarious they look like little kids that are lost in crowd and are looking for their mothers. I attended an expo a few years ago in Vegas but where I was standing when they came walking by was at lobby of Palms. They are truly still little kids and act like it with their hightops and shoes laces untied and hats on sideways. We all got a good laugh anyway because all rest of fighters are really cool and very mature and don’t act too good talk to fans.

So I know all about Faber etc etc. As for you my friend you should remember that any one of those Team Alpha Midgets would beat your ass around the block……As for Uriiah Hall the article is about mega fights. He can’t even with the show DUH………DICK
