Lightbulb Coaching

So he is a technical coach but not a good fighter, interesting assessment.

Throwing highlight-reel strikes against a powerful counter-puncher is a good way to get knocked out.

Exactly. Just watch Urijah Faber try to do some jumping spinning elbow and run right into a right hook from Mike Brown... That hurt to say but it was a good example.

I think Le will win this next fight.

But given the MW talent pool in Strikeforce right now..

Sheilds, Hendo, Lawler, Radach, Jacare, Miller.....

His undefeated days are numbered.

And Jacare, Hendo, and Shields are TERRIBLE stylistic match-ups for Cung Le. Both of them are fantastic at getting strikers to the ground and neutralizing them


I think Jacare especially would eat Cung Le alive. And don't let him anywhere near the 205 division, with Babalu and the Dreamcatcher.


I can't even imagine what Mousasi would do to him...

Not to mention Melvin Manhoef or Rafael Feijao. Cung is really more of a novelty of Strikeforce than a legitimate beast IMO.

I think you're being a bit harsh on Cung Le and others who are talented in one form of martial arts but have had less experience in MMA - particularly kick boxers.

Maybe it's just your tone, but I don't think you're giving him a fair shot.

I like Cung Le. I think he's going to be a very good MMA fighter.

Eh... I think Cung Le would just about tool Manhoef. A strong, moderately fast boxer is a great matchup for Manhoef. Rafael... I dunno. That'd be either a tough fight or an easy fight for Cung at this point, I really couldn't tell. Either way I'd DEFINITELY go out of my way to watch it.


Could you imagine the slaughter Cung Le would face at the hands of Mousasi...

I think you guys are forgetting the fact that he is only entering his 5th or 6th fight... Dude's MMA career is still young, and to talk so lowly of him is just ridiculous. You don't enter your 5th bout and fight one of the top p4p fighters in the world, unless of course you are Brock Lesnar.

In any case, Cung Le will probably knock out Smith real quick(early 2nd round) because Smith is probably gonna stand and bang with Le and I don't see smith having a striking advantage.

Oh, and one funny thing about the article.. how they said Pandorum was a hit. I just checked the boxoffice info.. production budget was $40mil and the movie only made $13 mil. That was a really dumb statement whoever wrote the article.
