Cung Le May Make Return On Dec. 19th, Strikeforce: Evolution

0

From MMAJunkie.com:

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le (6-0) may have vacated his belt to pursue a career in acting, but that doesn't mean he's given up fighting completely.

In fact, Le may return to action before the end of the year.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the event that Le has verbally agreed to face slugger Scott Smith (16-6) at the recently announced “Strikeforce: Evolution” event on Dec. 19 in San Jose, Calif.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker on Thursday told MMAjunkie.com that a main event for “Evolution” had yet to be determined, but the heavily anticipated welterweight title fight between top contenders Nick Diaz and Jay Hieron would not fill that role. A bout between vaunted strikers and California residents Le and Smith might work well in the slot.
