Well he should have known that before he steps into the Cage with Cung he could have trained for it.
And there are not many fighters who have such well timed spinning back kicks then Cung. He throughs them perfectly nearly every time. Thats very impressive!
But I tought Cung should have won that fight anyway in the first round, in my opinion Smith was just laying and praying!

Just read youre last comment, I guess youre right. That was probably the case for not stopping the fight.

Man, I was rooting for Cung Le the whole way. It's sad to see him finally lose a fight, but I guess it had to happen some time. I hope this motivates him to work on his ground game and fight MMA more often. I think he had a strong chance of GnPing Smith in the first round had he been more experienced at GnP. Guy's head was pinning up against the cage!

there is no way it should have been stopped in the 1st unless Mazz was reffing then again he let Hamill be mounted for over a min so who knows?? haha but yea, Cungs GnP looked pretty worthless, he didnt try to improve his position and just wore himself out throwing hammerfists that CLEARLY had no chance of stopping the fight. Good reffing!!!

I laughed SO hard when this happened. Cung Le just thought he has already broke Scott Smith, and he was already tired and his defenses just went to shit. Scott Smith then goes beserk and starts landing big hands. I knew cung le wouldn't be able to take the heat from those big hits.

The kicks did look impressive, but when you really think about it, Cung would have maybe 2 or 3 of them before a solid contender (i.e. NOT Scott Smith) would time them, catch them, and simply take Cung down everytime he tried to throw one. He's a one-kick pony.

Strikeforce may have a couple more "striking exhibition" type of fights left for him, but I'm guessing the days of Cung headlining are over.

Scott Smith is the master of the surprise punch. He's getting dominated for 2 and a half rounds and still gets the KO. That just crazy! I would never have expected that. Holy shit...

And although he won, I wasn't too impressed with his performance. It's time for him to step up his TDD and groundgame already. If Cung had just had a bit more of a killer instinct he could have finished Smith lots of times during the fight and most likely in the first round.
