Cung Le is ‘at a crossroads’ in his career

"Cung Le is ‘at a crossroads’ in his career

Quoteworthy:

“I just landed a big movie role with Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster. It’s been pretty exciting for me. I didn’t even get the role for my fighting abilities. I actually auditioned and I got it off straight acting. (It’s not based on martial arts) it’s science fiction. So far, the two movies that I did had fighting. They were saying that’s the best fight scene and they’re actually going to send it in to see if that fight scene gets best fight scene of the year with me and Channing Tatum. I feel like I still got a couple more good fights in me but at the same time I have to be smart. I’m at a crossroads. There’s a lot of great fighters out there. Of course, there’s the great Anderson Silva but that matchup doesn’t seem like it’s ever going to happen. He’s UFC, I’m Strikeforce. In the meantime, my next opponent is this movie. It’s an opportunity where I get to carry the action the whole movie and have a lot of acting. I’ve done a lot of fighting and I’ve done a lot for martial arts, but I’m sure if I get taken away for a couple of years or for good … it’s all pretty much in God’s hands right now.”

Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Cung Le talks about his acting career taking off in a big way during a recent interview. The mash up quote above is a combination of things he said in the interview, rather than an answer to just one question. However, the gist is that he’s considering taking on acting full time and taking a step down from competing in mixed martial arts sometime in the relatively near future. Le will also play Marshall Law in the big screen version of the popular video game, Tekken, which is done filming and set to come out next year. There’s no word yet on when he will defend his new 185-pound title for the first time. Get him back in the cage … fast."

Here's the full interview:

Le had been hinting about his movie career before and it sounds like he will fight a few more times(maybe) and then go acting full time. Kinda sucks as I wanted to see him fight more but if he wants to move in that direction and the money is good I can't blame him.

I would be pretty disappointed if he didn't keep fighting. I feel like there are a lot of good match-ups for him...obviously most of them are in the UFC...but still.
