Cung Le Unsure About His Future: “I Know My Clock Is Ticking”
Once upon a time, Cung Le said his dream was just to get the chance to compete inside the UFC Octagon. |
Now with a 2-1 record including Saturday’s one-punch knockout of former middleweight champion Rich Franklin, Le has done more than just “compete” – he’s winning fights in a big way.
“It’s like a dream, I feel like I’m in a dream right now,” Le said to Fuel TV after the knockout victory.
Explaining the set up for Franklin’s inevitable doom, Le says it all came down to timing, and knowing what his opponent was looking for and how to land the perfect counter strike.
“I just saw him timing my kicks, so I waited for him to punch, I threw that overhand right and got lucky and caught him,” said Le.
As modest as can be, Le says “lucky punch” when in reality it was a well timed, devastating right hand with so much torque that it left Franklin laying face down on the mat wondering what just happened.

“I love to do martial arts, I love to compete, and if I can do it as long as I live I’d do it, but I know my clock is ticking, so I’m doing my best,” Le stated. |
“I definitely want to take a little vacation before I start up training again, let my body heal up, my foot completely heal.”
