Frank Shamrock: I don't want to fight Cung Le until 2010!

Why so long? You think he would be a little upset that Cung Le broke his arm and took his title! You'd also think Frank would be a little upset with himself because he made the mistake of toying with Cung Le instead of going for the kill. Well the main reason Frank does not want to fight Cung Le is because Cung Le is not a good promoter! He believes no real story can be built around Him vs. Cung Le 2 and therefore it would not be very marketable. What is your honest opinion about this? Do you think Frank is making a big mistake or do you believe he is taking the right course of action?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Cung Le is filming a movie right now & I think i read somewhere Frank was moving up in weight (205), He plans on fighting Tito, & Ken. Then he wants to drop weight to fight Lawler & Shields (Jake moving up of course). I want to see Frank vs Babalu & Vitor, both are basically fighting on 1 fight contracts for Affliction.

I think Snyster is pretty much spot on, although he might just want to give his arm a nice long stretch to heel. I don't think he's ducking Le by any means, he's just got a lot of irons in the fire.

I understand Frank wanting to get geared up for Tito- if that fight were to take place it would be huge for ELITEXC and I'm sure a big CBS draw- but there's no guarantee that Tito is definitely coming(though def possible). Even if that fight took place I don't see why there would be a delay of a year and a half for Frank to move his weight around.

I would love to see a rematch between the two and I'd like to see Frank fight a better strategic fight and see how Le would respond to Frank's groundgame instead of just having a kick boxing match with him.

I want to see this fight sooner than 2010.

Cung Le is making a movie? really? A proper movie or the type of movie that has Randy Couture in it?

It's movie based on the Tekken video game so yes Randy could have had a role in it too. lol

Le also got cast in another movie that(if I remember correctly) has Kevin Costner in it and he was not hired to portray a fighter. So we'll see if he has any acting chops to go with his swank leg kicks.

yeah roger huerta was in it as well if I can remember. The movie should be done filming because roger is already getting ready for a fight.

your absolutely right. its more of a scheduling thing. Cung has other things going right now like his movie and frank is nursing that arm that cung broke. Frank also wants to make some money and rework his game a bit before going after cung le.

Like he said there is the whole tito ortiz fight in the works that every one is going crazy over. Hopefully they can make this thing happen. After that Ken and Frank have been trying to get a fight together for a long time. it was suppsoed to happen after the cung le fight but frank broke his arm and now the whole tito ortiz thing presented itself.

2010 is a realistic goal considering all of the things he wants and can do inbetween that time. If they make ortiz vs shamrock happen it wouldnt be till the end of this year. Also shamrock and cung le dont like to fight to often. 3 - 4 times a year would be a lot for frank. Hopefully we can see a renzo gracie rematch.

Either he thinks Cungs acting career will take off and he will vacate the belt. Or he thinks lets get an easy win and fight my brother.

nah that isnt how frank thinks. when he looks for fights, he looks for fights that are interesting for him or pose a big pay day. he had several oppertunities with strike force to fight cans and he turned them down.

True! I would like to see the Tito vs Frank fight that would be a really good Pay day for him. or even give him the loser of Scott smith and Robbie lawler.
