yeah big pay day and I dont know one person that would turn down that fight especially if it was free on tv. Frank Shamrock vs Tito Ortiz goes back to the days when the lions den was big. Any one would want to see them go at it again especially all the tito fans that say that frank was ducking tito after the fact. Very interesting fight.

Agreed, it is a cash cow for both fighters.

franks a smart guy he already has all the glory he is trying to get as much money as he can while he can so that when he is done fighting he will never have to work hard again. He has a lot of other side ventures as well like his mma accademy , instructionals, books, seminars and promoting up and coming fighters. Hes got his hands in everything.

in a side conversation, one of the kickboxing stars out of the IFL (went the year undefeated) remarked that he wanted to have the same success transitioning over into the UFC as Cung Lee did. He got Jacked by a groundfighter and beat to a pulp.

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.

Staying at long range with kicks is an intelligent overall move, I think, esp if you're fighting a larger person or hoping to tire someone out. You could even say it's........elusive.
