Le isn't even a gifted kickboxer, he is average at best, Manhoef would destroy him in the first round, fact is he had a competitive fight against a past his prime Frank Shamrock who only fought Le's game. Le has fought absolutely nobody who is relevant in the sport in this day and age. To be perfectly honest Im not even gonna write off Smith even if he does try and stand with Le.

Cung Le is easily the most overated fighter to ever step into a cage, the fact that people would actually mention him in the same sentence as a guy like Dan Henderson is laughable at best.

Every kickboxing, thai boxing, karate, and general striking coach I've ever met regard Cung Le's standup very highly. I guess you know something they don't?

I know he couldn't destroy Frank Shamrock who has never been considered a great striker even in his prime, Nick Diaz destroyed Frank Shamrock standing, shouldn't such an elite level MW kickboxer as you claim Le is be able to do that much quicker than a LW MMA fighter?

Frank Shamrock isn't a b-level striker, and neither is Nick Diaz.


You should know that MMA striking is much different than normal kickboxing, you have to be cautious due to take-downs.

Neither guy is ever gonna be brought up in a thread discussing the top strikers in MMA, Shamrock looked fairly evenly matched with Le, neither could strike with a real fierce striker.

I realize there is a diffrence in the striking of MMA and kickboxing but despite all of Le's flashy striking he would get owned by a top level stiker. Cung Le should stick to movies cause he is not an elite level striker and sure as hell is not an MMA fighter.

I've actually got Smith winning this. He's one of the best punchers -- and definitely the hardest hitter -- Le has yet faced. He's got a solid chin, too.
I'm looking for Le to score early with kicks and punches, before Smith finally cracks him with a counter right and follows up for a TKO.

So basically you are saying this will be a slugfest and that Smith will win.

Yeah... Le is a great kickboxing 'coach'... thats it.

You know how the saying goes... those that cant do, teach

thats not to say he isnt skilled technically... or that he couldnt hold his own in the stand up game... but his talent is being overly hyped... and Im a Cung Le fan
