    at the end of his last fight he called out shamrock and said he wanted to fight him for the title. he already has 5 str8 mma wins. With his backround plus all of those fights in mma he finally has the build and credibility he needed for a title shot.

    You only build so much cred fighting chumps they toss you. I am a Cung Le fan but I hope he gets a fight like Shamrock so we can see what he is made of.

    Beating cans and making it look like a San Shou/Judo exhibition != becoming credible in MMA.
     
  7. Shamrock will outstrike him and KO him.

    I can smile when its raining.
    I think Shamrock will just take the fight to the ground. I don't really care how much Cung Le has trained on the ground, Shamrock has been doing it for much longer.

    Frank is a monster on the ground. Cung's hip throws are impressive, but I don't think there is any way he can hang with Shamrock on the ground.

    Is Cung Le actually a douche? Does he hype himself? Or are people just hating the hype that other people are generating? I haven't heard much smack talk come out of Cung Le's mouth, though I haven't heard much out of him full stop.

    exactly i think its alot of unfounded hate but people have been hating him ever since he was in sanshou sp? I think hes good but people love to hate.

    i mean untill recently he really was a nobody in mma. He has fought no bodies because he wasnt any body special. its annoying when you hear people complain that lesnar, kimbo and cung are fighting cans and no bodies because they arent veterans either they are trying to come into the sport and are still new. Its obvious that any one who is a top tier fighter will roast them when the first start so they need some kind of base and comfort area with mma. They are just getting experience.

    you couldnt find three more different fighters with more different backgrounds to compare.

    and no it is not hate without reason. he has always been a cocky prick in his interviews and acted like god's gift to kickboxing when he only fought in matches with rules he was used to. His sanshou fights were almost always against people with no background in sanshou.

    people were pumped for Kimbo vs Tank, so i dont know what you are talking about, and I dont know anyone that thinks lesnar is deserve ring, the masses have been exclaiming that he does not deserve a top ranked for his next fight.

    i think cungs good to go if strike force and he thought he needed a build thats how the game goes. hes trying to build a career and trying to adapt to a new sport I think he will shut alot of people up with this shamrock fight win or lose
