Better Know A Fighter: Cung Le’s Greatest Hits


(Cung Le vs. Mike Altman, 3/10/06)

Since Cung Le came to MMA in 2006 via the untraditional route of San Shou, many fight fans are still unfamiliar with his early work.  Well, that ends right here and now.  As part of our attempt to get hyped for Saturday night’s Strikeforce: Evolution event (which we’ll be liveblogging, natch) we’re taking a look back at some of Le’s finest moments in the cage. 

We begin with his MMA debut against Mike Altman in a 2006 Strikeforce event.  Take note of color commentator Ken Shamrock‘s stunned disbelief at Altman’s game plan.  Shammy is blown away that Altman decides to stand and trade with Le, and his concern proves to be well founded.  Le picks Altman apart with ease before putting him to sleep late in the first round, proving once and for all that in all matters not related to finance, workout "supplements," and appropriate expressions of rage, you should probably listen to Ken Shamrock’s advice.   Hope you’re paying attention, Scott Smith.

The Cung Le knockout-apalooza continues after the jump.

If Cung Le fought a bjj black belt he would be in some serious trouble. Regardless he's an amazing striker

we can only hope that one day, maybe we'll hear "And Judge Steve Mazzagati scores the fight 10-8, 9-10, 10-10 for your winner, by split decision... "

i can't wait.

The Shamrock vs Le fight is one of the best fights I've ever seen

God damn, would someone please take this guy down and g&p him back into his movie career. He hasn't fought anyone with any sort of reasonable gameplan yet. Everyone just seems to stand in front of him.

Scott Smith may not be the guy to do that, but hopefully he can at least land a big counter to test Le's chin.

I know it doesn't fit in this post, but being that one of the Ben's is a UM grad, GO GRIZ!!!!

Le is an exciting fighter, but he's old and he'd never really been tested, and jus like kimbo slice he'd probably find himself in trouble against the creme de la creme, or at least become far less entertaining, i honestly couldnt see him throwing spinning heel kicks against anderson silva. Maybe he could sign with the ufc and beat on kendall grove and cb dolloway, at least he'd get more monies that way

Nevermind, Ken Shamrock totally makes sense. I was imagining Frank Shamrock's voice.

Was that Ken Shamrock commentating in the first video? Sounded more like Baroni.
