He was fantastic to watch but his days are gone, he looked sh*t in his last fight out and is only getting older.

I think he wants some more promotion and what bigger stage than the UFC on a HW title card against an easy opponent who just got some notoriety.
He looked like shit in his last fight?? What fight is that? his last MMA fight was a rematch against Scott Smith and he looked nowhere near shit. The guy got a finish in the second round due to a body kick. He didnt take alot of damage and managed to return alot and make it entertaining. Did you even actually watch the fight?? Cung Le just finished what he started in their first fight before one of the best out of nowhere comeback haymaker landed on his chin.

Cung Le would destroy Leben. Cung is a nightmare match up for Leben. It would look similar to Bisping vs leben, except, Cung Le hits alot harder then Bisping does and is ALOOOT more versatile. Im not sure what Lebens body kick defense is like BUT they would be coming Hard,Fast and strong.

See above. Sometimes i wonder if you guys write stuff before thinking. Stylistically Leben has nothing to offer Cung Le. Only way Leben takes this is if we get a mirror image of Cung le vs Scott Smith 1.

Gives nothing back to MMA?? Whats with that? i saw a couple people posting that.

I dont know where to start but i guess il try with
MMA IS NOT A PERSON. Cung Le didnt borrow anything from this guy MMA and then decide to not return it. Cung Le worked hard for his wins and entertained the crowd in doing so. He put his body in harms way for the sport. The guy owns his own gym and does a good amount off public seminars. He helps alot of people train and if that isnt giving back then i dont know what is. You guys act like he owes you something, which is silly and selfish. He cant make a movie or 2 without you guys thinking ill of him?? That is sooo unbelievably unreasonable. You guys have your own lives, dont try to live his for him.


Now that i finished opening the flood gate to negs.

Id actually love for Cung Le to get a shot in the UFC. Give him 2 fights against average opponents to see where he is at. If he still looks in shape and motivated and gets those wins then we start treating him like a contender. Cung Le can be used for some pretty interesting fights (Silva,Stann,Leben,Wanderlei,Bisping). The MW division is pretty weak and it seems like there isn't alot of people in it. If it was a wrestling based division like the WW division is, then id see little hope for him to be relevant. Lucky for him there is alot of people in the MW division that would be happy to trade with him. He would have a few kryptonites such as Chael,Munoz and Yushin. Even though i doubt it, in a main event fight, Cung Le would have 25min to try and submit Chael (My moneys on Chael). Munoz does not have the best shot and gets caught up in trading punches, but if Munoz gets Cung down then Cung is in some serious trouble. Yushin Okami is probably the fight Cung le is least likely to win.
So id have to say, if Cung Le looks good in his next fight, i would love to see him mix it up in the UFC MW Division.

All The Best

Wow seriously?!? I really thought this absolutely moronic midset had been lifted from this forum... bummer.

Chris Leben is far from the most skilled fighter, farther from a future champion. But he is not an easy fight for anyone! Stann and Silva caught him, no question about it. But to refer to him as an easy opponent is an excersise in ingnorance.

Atleast they are not saying that Cung Le will "Destroy" him. Which is what im dealing with here on the other side of the wall.
Would you like to join me in brick wall head bumping? Maybe we can tear the wall down together!!

I'm gonna get it over with and say it...cung le will murder leben if the were to hook up in the octagon. Leben struggles with any technical striker and one back kick from cung le it would be good night for him. Cung le has destroyed everybody he has faced, he got caught by smith the first time but was absolute destroying him before that happen.

You didnt have to take that hurdle!! I already did it for you a few posts up.

Good Stuff Marc. Glad someone is going to use logic as way to determine the possible outcome.

As i stated in my other post. Cung Le is a really good fit in the MW division. A division that lacks challengers and interesting fights, Cung Le can be the cure. Give him 1 or 2 avereage opponents to determine how much he still wants this job, or if he still has it. Then you can set him up with a bunch of fighters happy to strike with him. Id love to see Cung Le fight Anderson Silva, Wanderlei, Chris, BISPING!!, Demian Maia... ETC. It would be a GREAT BJJ VS Striker match up if Cung Le can take on Maia. Normally id say Maia wins BUT he is a pretty bad wrestler. Cung Le is as superior to Maia standing as Maia is to Cung le on the ground. The real question is, can Maia take Cung down OR can Cung keep Maia standing.
Cung Le has always been exciting and would really be an interesting addition.

I'd be excited for this fight. Le has the better striking but that doesn't always matter. Ask Wandy. I'd still go for a Le win. Then hopefully we might get to see Anderson v Cung Le. That'll be a flashy ass fight.

Is Cung Le raelly in a position where he can come into the UFC calling for whatever fight he wants? Im not sure.

That said, I think a fight between him a Leban would be exciting. If Cung Le does not gas I would have him winning, those kicks are lethal.

Wandy doesnt really have better striking then Chris Leben. He is probably better overall BUT i believe that Chris is a better boxer. Wanderlei runs right in and swings wild while Chris is similar BUT is more accurate and has a chin to back his style up.
To beat Leben standing you need a striker that is extremely technical, versatile and quick, Also known as Cung Le.
