PDG: So you think that you and Frank are fighting at the Strikeforce event in March? Because there have been a lots of rumors that Frank is fighting Ken Shamrock on March 31st.
Cung: Yes, as far as I know we will be fighting March 29th. The fight with his brother is slated for next year. Why would they have that fight on a Monday night? I think that our fight will be bigger anyway because it's not like Ken has had a lot of success lately with his two losses to Tito Ortiz. Fans will watch that fight because of the drama between the two but I believe that our fight will be better.
PDG: Since Frank excepted your challenge at that last Strikeforce event, he put up a little Youtube (http://youtube.com/watch?v=892xeAKarSY
) video of the two of you sparring several years ago basically mocking your skills. Did you get a chance to see it and what you think?
Cung: Yes I have seen it and that Youtube video is only about 30 seconds long. You should ask him to post the whole un-edited video and then people can make up their own mind. That video only contained the first round of our warm-ups but that's fine because now fans can have something to watch that will help build up the fight. Personally, I laughed at the video. When we were sparring that time Frank had his video camera and I did not have one, so he is the only one that has the whole un-edited version. So unless Frank posts the whole video, fans will just have to wait until March to see what really happened during that sparring session.
PDG: What do you think your advantages are going to be in the fight?
Cung: Of course I believe that my advantages are going to be in the stand-up game. Frank will have the advantage on the ground where he is very good. At the same time, Frank is also very good in his stand-up and with 4 ounce gloves everyone in MMA has a punchers' chance. It is almost like hitting with your bare fists. I like my chances in this fight and that is all that I am going to say about it.
PDG: So then when does the training begin full bore?
Cung: It has already begun!! This time around I have hired a nanny to help with the kids so that I can concentrate 100% on my fight with Frank. This fight is very important in my career and I cannot afford any distractions.
So who takes this?
