Cung Le Eyes Return To Strikeforce By The End Of The Year

MMAJunkie.com has the story:

While Strikeforce has made recent headlines with the impressive roster of new talent company officials have managed to bring to the organization, one familiar face has remained unseen for more than a year.

Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le (6-0) hasn't fought since earning the title with a TKO win over Frank Shamrock in March 2008, and many MMA fans are calling for the flashy striker to give up the belt.

But as Le recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio), Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker isn't of the same opinion.

“I had that conversation with Scott Coker,” Le said. “I think we talked maybe a week ago, and he said he's trying to figure out when the next CBS date will be. He said as soon as he squares away that deal, am I interested in fighting? I said, 'Of course.'

“[Coker] said either the end of the year or early next year he should get that CBS deal going and I should be back in there throwing kicks.”
