I never knew Cung Le had a wrestling background, i thought his ground gme was non-existant, makes a little more sense as to why Fryluk (sp?) didn't try and take him down

Thats why he so damn good at Shan Shou, he used his wrestling to throw those kickboxer's like rag dolls. Also he is supposed to have some of the best takedown D in mma

He took 8th at nationals for Greco. That's pretty damn good. I've heard he also has a sick BJJ game.

I think he either has a blue belt or a purple belt. Either way he is a dangerous fighter, and if he was only a little younger he could easily dominate the division

I knew he had a background.. I just never knew it was the good.
