He may not win all the time, but the kid definitely won me over as a fan for life after tonight.

HAHAHAHAHA, the only man to beat Cung Le in a professional fight... Ahahahahahahahahhaahhahahahahhaha....
My thoughts exactly. But I think all the signs were there. I knew Cung wouldn't have decent cardio since his movie career has taken over. I suspect that he'll be done for good very soon.

I was shocked as hell. I though Cung did great the first two and a half rounds but towards the end I remember Shamrock saying Cung should stop throwing certain strikes and going for explosive takedowns because he should save his energy, and Frank was right.

Crazy though how Scott pulled it off again!

Davisty is right, the freaking Rocky Balboa of MMA.

at least the ridiculous hype train is derailed the announce team made me nauteous trying to make Cung out to be some God of MMA... he is decent by nowhere near a top MW imo and the kicks are flashy but take a real look, they dont really hit flush and more pushed Smith down then hurt him. Smith looked unimpressive, absolutely zero head movement as usual and just holding his hands infront of his body and moving forward and waiting to get kicked. Cung wouldnt look nearly as good against somebody with a real game plan, Smith didnt need to get beat down like that for 2 rounds he just needed to get inside, once he started clinching in the 2nd round he found some success and confidence.

Couldn't find a better pic of his face but thought this was fairly funny.

Scott "The Italian Stallion" Smith should be his name from now on!

Did Apollo Creed have ring rust against Rocky? I think not. You simply can't always beat Heart with Skill.

Lol, Rocky reference aside, I do think Scott has a huge heart and showed it yet again, in this fight.

OMG was blown away by this fight

What a great battle with such a great finish. I was hopeing that Cung would win this he dominated round 1 and 2 easily but he has no cardio for 3 rounds. Damn those spinning back kicks are awesome How many times did he through them? Just insane, great Show!

I think the fight should have been stopped after all these Hammerfists from Cung...don't you think so? In my opinion he didn't really defend himself anymore not intelligent thats for sure.

Cung's kicks looked impressive, but its clear that Smith has zero experience with someone that throw kicks like that. Cung Le wont be landing many of those if he fights someone with some sort karate or tkd backround. Smith is more of a muay thay guy and isnt use to trying to evade kicks like that. They were mostly telegraphed as hell, I was surprised Smith wasnt way more prepared for that. Not saying it wasnt impressive to watch, just saying that if Cung hadnt gotten caught tonight, it wouldnt have been long before someone would have actually gameplanned for all of his flashy kicks. That said, I cant wait to see him fight again, its just really fun to watch.

For the post above, the fight probably would have been stopped if it had been anyone else, but Scott Smith is known for being able to take an insane beating before he quits and Big John is the best ref in the game, he probably factored that into deciding not to stop the fight when Le had Smith on the ground.
