Cung Le Talks Liver Kick Finish: It's All She Wrote

0

After avenging his December loss to Scott Smith on Saturday at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum, Cung Le talked about the finish of the fight and picking his punches to set up the win:

“I knew he was going to come out [quickly]. I knew he was going to come hard, close the distance so I couldn't kick. But he forgot that I've got [fists]! I set up the [spinning back kick] with the hands. I had a great training camp, I learned to sit on my punches and set everything up. I hit him and I knew he was going to back up, thinking I was going to throw another combo. But I stuck that kick in. It was a great lead shot and got him right in the liver. That's all she wrote!”
