Former Strikeforce Middleweight Champ Cung Le talked to Bleacher Report about the current Champ, Jake Shields, in regards to Shields calling out the former champ for not fighting him:
“Those things don't really bother me, with Jake, if that's the way he has to express himself to gain more fans or to talk himself up then that's how he does it. I'm a traditional martial artist and I'm always going to carry myself in the most respectful way I can.
Everyone has their own little thing and if he wants to be that person then I'll let him be that kind of person. Whether he leaves or not he definitely has his hands full with Dan Henderson. If Scott Coker says, “Cung you're fighting Jake Shields,” then I would say yes, I will fight Jake Shields. He's the promoter and he's the one who pays me, when it comes to business then it's business.”
Le also talks about his loss to Scott Smith in December, check it out HERE.
