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.”
