Cung Le Says He Is Too Old For Strikeforce Middleweight Tournament

Former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Cung Le talks with MMAWeekly.com about the upcoming 185lb. tournament that is likely to take place when Jake Shields vacates the title to sign with the UFC:

“You know tournaments, let those young guys do the tournaments. I'm 38 years old, and even though I looked 28 on Saturday, after I put that pizza, chocolate chips, and cookies in my stomach, I feel like a 38-year-old. I want to sit down with Scott Coker and see what he has in store for me, but I definitely didn't take that much wear and tear in this fight, and you go through that tournament and you're fighting a lot. There's going to be a lot of wear and tear, and I'm not sure exactly what I want to do at this point. Right now, in the last five months, I haven't had that much time to spend with my boys. It was a lot about me. I was really selfish for this fight, and I was really focused. I've got to give back a little bit.”
