When the UFC makes their promotional debut in San Jose, CA on November 19th at UFC 138, one former Strikeforce Champion would like a shot at being on the card.

Cung Le, who held the Strikeforce Middleweight Title before giving up to focus on movies, talked to this week about the November card which will feature Cain Velasquez taking on Junior Dos Santos in the main event:

“I would like to have a couple of fights in the UFC. I'm one of those guys that, if it's going to be an exciting fight and a good match-up for the fans to watch, let's get it on. I have nothing to prove, so I'm down to fight anyone if it's going to be exciting for the fans to watch. Right now, it's all up to the UFC. Ever since I heard that Cain [Velasquez] was going to be fighting in San Jose … I would love to be on the same card. You know, on Yahoo! Sports, there is a Cung Le vs. [Chris] Leben thread if there was a cross promotion. Like I said, if the fans think it is an exciting fight for them to watch, I'm all for it.”
