    Cung Le would be beaten by Okami, Munoz, Belcher, Bisping, Belfort and Rockhold.

    To say he is a top contender is baffling. Well, not really when you take into account hyperbole, but still. The statement defies reality harshly.

    I wonder if Florian actually keeps up with MMA sometimes.

    It sucks Frankin got dropped like that but hopefully he can recover and put on few more for us.

    Nice catch by Le. I want to see him against Belfort. Hell, with his style this might be the guy to face Silva.
    Franklin always strikes like that though, throwing awkward combinations and leaving himself open. Most guys can't deal with the volume of strikes so he gets away with it, but better strikers have always tagged him like Wanderlei, Belfort, Anderson, and now Le.

    Just saw the KO.

    Holy-shit.

    Cung Le, FTW!

    I don't know what Rich was thinking but Le capitalized 100%.

    Le given special opponetts can put on some exciting fights,but there are many IMO who would nolify his game to boring status. Age and movies are all major road blocks in his mma fighting

    Rich was getting the better of it then he got blasted. I was really shocked when it happened; I was getting ready for 5 rounds of Le getting picked apart.

    I think Le can hang with a lot of guys near the top, but he definitely has his weaknesses. I think they should save him for bigger fights against other aging vets with name value.

    Tito wasn't champ when Cote fought him, he'd lost the title to Couture and was coming off of the first loss to Liddell.

    Cote was a last minute replacement for Mezger, not a title fight.

    Belcher was the exact fight I was thinking of. Belcher vs Le would be a good fight and Belcher wouldn't leave himself open like that. Re-match vs Wandy? I'd watch that just to see Wandy destroy Le again. I don't know why but I really don't like Le, he's not a dick that I can tell but I just don't like him so I will always root against him. Perhaps it's from movies? Generally I don't like people that make themselves look overly amazing in movies.

Personally I still dream of seeing Cung Le vs Anderson Silva. I know Silva would probably smoke him, but just to see an almost pure TMA clinic would be a dream. of course styles makes fights and Le could pull off the upset. The guy is legit period. Hey Chael Sonnen is getting a tittle shot in a division he's hasn't won in. Welcome to Zuffa World folks.....
