Cung Le Says Frank Shamrock Backed Out Of Proposed Fight


Earlier today spoke with Strikeforce Middleweight Cung Le and he confirmed that he will be fighting on the November 16th Strikeforce card at the HP Pavillion in San Jose, CA. Who his opponent will be has yet to be determined but Cung made mention of the fact that Frank Shamrock backed out of a possible match-up. Both fighters made mention of it during the Strikeforce at the Playboy Mansion show so it can be assumed it will most likely happen down the line. Cung also stated that there have been about a dozen names thrown at him but it hasnt been narrowed down yet. The show is still well over a month away so it should be announced who his opponent will be over the next few weeks.

After an impressive showing in his last about against Tony Fryklund, Le upped his record to 4-0 in MMA competition and will look to go 5-0. A rumoured bout between him and Shamrock has been discussed for quite a while now but it looks as if it will not be happening anytime soon.

With a tournament on the slate and Cung Le main eventing, along with Daniel Puder and Paul Buentello confirmed to be on the card – the next Strikeforce show is starting to shape up nicely. will be speaking with Cung in-depth to discuss this amoung other things later today or possiblly later in the week. Be sure to check back here for that.
