    According to that site he is going to fight MMA, and possibly his own student. Cung is a purple belt in bjj, and has GREAT standup/takedowns... I think he will be a dominant force.

    hah, I can imagine that dude from King of the hill talking like that. But yeah Cung was so dominant in every fight I've seen on tv, I think he would tear his weight class apart.

    I seen him do that crazy scissor sweep leg take down thing.

    It was sweet looking.

    he will get killed. even in san shou competitions, he only fights the mediocre fighters because he wants to maintain his record


    he's WAY overrated

    Yessss, he's got good kicks...I don't know if that scissor kick shit will work though.
    But it'll be entertaining to see him try anyways.

    I don't think Lee will do well in MMA, when he competes he depends on the san shou rules for points for those crazy take downs and throws. Even when he is fighting on a K-1 card his fights have modified rules. I would like to see him fight an actual kickboxing match against some real competition first.

    yeah I have seen his san shou fights too and I think he will get fucking clowned in MMA. But as stated he'll probably fight under some special gay ruleset against a can of tomatoes and then declare himself the king of kung fu mma.

    scissor kicks are only for point based competitions. unless he can transition it into a leg lock (like ryo chonan's one :bowdown: ) i doubt they'd be very effective at all

    yeah his whole "HA! HA! I TOOK YOU DOWN!" fighting style won't translate well. Unless he's been working hard on the side at continuous fighting then he'll get creamed.

    and yeah if he tries any of that fancy pants shit he's gonna get destroyed.

    he has decent striking and great takedowns, i guess it depends on how good his ground striking and submissions are .

    But the guy has awesome potential because he can dictate where the fight goes. He did dominate shonie when they fought and made him look stupid in both striking and takedowns.

    he definitely knows his subs. Being a purple belt, I am sure he will be able to dominate his opponents on the ground and standing. Sure he fights under strange rules, but it really is only a matter of adding the ground aspect which he already is good at. Look at crocop, he hardly knew any ground work when he started mma and now hes top 3. Hopefully Cung can do the same.

    true... but he is also out of shape.

    Imagine in the UFC when gannon enters they list his 3 best attributes as:

    1) Golden gloves boxing champ
    2) Submissions expert
    3) Beat Kimbo Slice :mamoru:

    anyways, Cung Le will get pummelled, unless like in his san shou career, he chooses his own opponents (i.e. people like me :o)

    he's a san shou kickboxer, not an MMA fighter. for a viet MMA fighter, check out Nam Pham :bowdown:
