UFC or Bust, Cung Le Wants a UFC Fight or He'll Stick with Acting



Quote:
I know for a fact that if I do fight again, it’s going to be in the UFC. I’ve never fought in the UFC, but I would love to fight in the UFC. But right now because of my contract with Showtime and Strikeforce, hopefully things can work out because there is a show in San Jose that Cain Velasquez is the main event. I would love to fight in San Jose for the UFC and for Dana White and Lorenzo (Fertitta).

Dana needs to sign him. He maybe in the twilight of his career but I think he can add alot the the MW division. After Andy beats Okami, whats next? Bisping? I wouldn't say the MW division is weak, but I'd say the contendership for the title is very weak. Cung Le would be able to contribute.

I really can't see Dana letting this happen. Cung Le drifts between mma and filming way too much to actually have him in the UFC. Can't see him causing much of a stir at 185 anyway. Too may good wrestlers.

He brings so much to the MMA world.

1.) He's Asian that actually fight...lolz!
2.) Martial artist with top notch striking and kicks especially.
3.) Marketability since he is in films so he can cross over from the West to the East.

Cung vs Leben would be quite stellar.

I never thought he would do well in the UFC, but god bless the guy for wanting in.

I think it's awesome that he's using his popularity to petition for a spot there, I'd certainly love to see a fight with Leben. I'd also love to see him fight an american wrestler who will show him what's up, though.

I don't think he offers any threats to the belt but it sure would be interesting to see him in the mix of things. Hope Dana brings him over but I doubt it. I'm surprised that showtime let go of one of their biggest draws in Diaz, doubt it becomes a regular until SF folds or the deal with showtime is done.

u kno those people that think they have what it takes to do multiple things as a craft, and then u have to bring them back to life and say "don't quit ur day job". well Cung Le is gonna be an idiot if he thinks his acting career is gonna make him the money and fans MMA does.

remember to put "imo" at the end of everyone of my post, and keep the "u mad?" to urselves.
