I hope Cung goes up against someone is A) either not paid to keep it on the feet or 2)goes in with a game plan to take it to the ground.
cung le style is a pain in the ass for grapplers because he stays at long range with his kicks and when they try to shoot in he will just dissapear on their asses. if they try to come in he will just side kick the crap out of them to get them the hell away from him. I dont think theres that many grapplers out there that could take him down. The only three I can see beating him are paulo filho, matt lindland and hendo.
I think what will be cung les eventual down fall wont be a grappler. I think it will end up being a very strong striker. Shamrock was able to stand and bang with cung le till the end of the third round so I would like to see how he does with some one like robbie lawler or anderson silva. That is what I think will be what topples cung.
