Terrible Cardio from Le.
And IDK why he was holding back on his kicks... Cung's output had to be less than half on his normal strikes.
Actually those kicks are what causes him to gas out badly everytime although he was slowing down big time already in the third. He's just too old now. I was telling everybody that had Cung transitioned into MMA earlier in his career he would have been like an Edson Barboza. Winning fights with high light reel kicks one after another except he has a wrestling background.
This win proves that Cung is a force even at his age. I really thought Cote would knock him out in the latter rounds after he got winded. But I'm sure Javier Mendez saw this and told em to pick his shots more carefully.
I dunno I want to see Cung fight more, but he's gonna have trouble. He won't make it in championship rounds sadly. Please don't put Vitor vs Cung. Lets see...
Cung vs Bisping would be interesting.
Cung vs Rich Franklin.
I definitely see Cote vs Wanderlei as a good match up especially the staredown. Both coming off a loss.
