EXCLUSIVE | Gary Owens talks Cung Le | UFC News

If you don’t know who Gary Owens is – you should. He has been a driving force behind some of the most recognizable names in MMA. He trains the military, professional sports teams, and MMA athletes on a regular basis.

One of the most notable athletes under his care is middleweight standout Cung Le. Le is the former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion and his destruction of Frank Shamrock opened many eyes to the level of his abilities. Cung is currently training for a fight with heavy handed striker Patrick Cote at UFC 148. Owens opened up about his training.

“His training is going awesome. He’s got guys like myself, Scott Sheeley, and Javier Mendez behind him and we’re pushing him to get better. Cung is ready to prove he is one of the best in the UFC in this fight against Patrick”.

Cote stepped in for Rich Franklin’s spot at UFC 148 after Franklin replaced an injured Vitor Belfort in the main event of UFC 147. Cung’s camp was admittedly a little disappointed.

“Obviously it’s a little bit of a letdown. As a fighter you get geared up and you get a game plan going. You have to scrap that so it’s a little bit of a letdown. Rich Franklin is an amazing fighter and Cung really wanted this fight. He’s happy with his new opponent of course because Cote will bring his A game. Both fights made for an interesting night. Cung just wants to get in there and get a win. That’s the bottom line”.

After the substitution was announced, initially Le had to take a step back according to Gary.

“He just took a day to collect himself. If you know Cung like I do then you know he bounces back right away. It definitely, with any fight you get geared up for someone and it gets taken away. That’s hard. He had to collect himself and get ready for the next guy. It’s unfortunate that it happened at this level due to injuries and what not. It is what it is and Cung is still ready to get in there and bang”.

Gary knows all too well the effects an injury. As a fighter himself Gary was disappointed on more than one occasion, but because of those disappointments he can better prepare the people he trains.

“I remember fighting as an amateur I would drive like 3 ½ hours away. You didn’t even know if your opponent would show up. You get there and your opponent backs out. It’s the nature of the business and like Cung did you have to adapt”.

    Why is this Owens guy wasting his valuable time trying to teach Jon ” LAY N PRAY” Fitch standup. Fitch has worst standup in all MMA with only jake sheilds as a close second. Although Sheilds went toe to toe with GSP for 5 rounds and actually looked better than GSP. GSP was so deathly afraid of going to teh ground with sheilds he ran away from every possible grappling situation. OUR Champis real brave isn’t he

    • Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

      And ur a real brave keyboard warrior arnt you? you little fucker

      • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

        Keep Fitch faggot this little warrior would crush you in less than 30 seconds. I would be willing to put up 10k that you wouldn’t last a minute and will gaurantee you a broken jaw and broken orbital. anytime anywhere punk

        • Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

          Im not a savage hooligan like you trying to pick up fights with people on internet which is realistically impossible. Wtf are you gonna do dumbass? punch me through the computer? lol Go fuck urself idiot and grow a brain, quit criticizing fighter for taking people down. Maybe their opponents should have better take down defense. If a person cant get back to his feet then he deserves to be laid on for the rest of the fight.

        • Lincoln says:

          I agree with keep fitch. “Im not a savage hooligan like you” that was so funny!! I lol’d at that so hard!

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          I would get on a plane in an hour to track your sorry LOSER ass down. little bitch fuck. I would rip your face off so fast you would think a gorilla got his hands on you. Seattle center in 12 hours I will be there.

        • Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

          Let’s do it bro. You better be there you pussy. Lucky for you, I do live in Seattle.

          Better show up pussy. Driving a Ford F-150. Grey. Main Entrance.

        • KIDD433 says:

          KEEP FITCH,You must enjoy men on men,if you think Fitch or that type of fighting is entertaining…Have you ever paid 50 bucks to see a good fight and than have it spoiled by a fighter who lays and humps the other fighter to avoid the fight?You should try gay porn on the internet,it’ll save you some $,you’ll probably find your boy GSP there too

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          At least you admit all that PUSSY faggot Fitch does is lay on people. Too bad he’s too scared to fight at his natural weight of 205 again but we all know he got his ass handed to him and KO’d fighting guys his own size. Pussy lay n prayer lost 2 rounds to BJ who he had 30 lbs on at fight time. wow real impressive to be scared to fight anyone even remotely close to his own size. yes its well known fact that Fitch is regarded as the best weight cutter in MMA but i think it just makes him look like a bigger pussy who is scared. Fitch would even get KO’d and submitted at MW. Pussyed out to fight Simpson who is 10 times better wrestler and 100 times better athlete and would’ve KO’d him with his big right hand after Fitch figured out his usual lay n pray was impossible. If half the fighters in MMA were one tenth as boring as Fitch MMA would have failed 10 years ago

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Owens needs to train someone who actually uses standup

  2. KIDD433 says:

    YA NO SHIT,tired of hearing hype about boring ass GEORGE SAFE PIERRE…

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Cung is what I call a REAL FIGHTER not a lay npraying , safefighting, point fighting PUSSY

      • Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

        Better be there pussy. Lucky for you I DO live in Seattle.

        Ford F-150, grey. Main entrance.

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          As expected Fitch lover never showed up. I was hoping he was going to bring all his FAGGOT wrestling buddies.

        • Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

          Your the one who didnt show up you faggot pussy. I got so bored waiting for you so I went to your mama’s house and banged her as hard as possible. She loved she said even your dady couldnt satisfy her as much as i did.

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          Fitch lover is biggest pussy on planet and BTW bitch my momma’s been dead for 20 years. I gauarantee if you would have had balls to show up you wouldn’t have been talking about my momma after you took one look at me. You would have started running and then I would have run your ass down and pounded your face in concrete.

        • Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

          Hey you get rid of fitch faggot. Your a lying piece of shit. First off fitch is not a natural 205. In his fight with BJ fitch was walking around 180lbs and from there he cut to 170. Quit lying u cock sucking homo faggot. Mother if i saw yeh maybe i might run it wont be because im scared of u but its of your ugly looking nasty bitch ass pedophile face. But i came ur the one who didnt show up ur pussy. Your a filthy pedophile looking for men to meet u. I would stick my boot so far up your ass you will feel like u been fucked by a train.

        • Mike cannon jr says:

          I can’t just hate on fitch.. For laying and praying… When Gsp is the it.. Lol… Koschek … Sux ass too… But I just hate a guy who can’t hit u… Unless he’s laying on u.. It’s just pathetic to me.. It’s like a woman… Ahahaha
