Reigning Strikeforce World Middleweight (185 lb. limit) Champion, Cung Le, will appear live on the national cable network show, ESPNEWS’ ‘The Hot List’ on Wednesday, July 16 at 5:10 p.m. EST (2:10 p.m. PST).
During the interview, Le, who has appeared repeatedly, of late, on the wildly popular Strikeforce on NBC weekly mixed martial arts (MMA) series, will share his thoughts on the explosive growth of MMA, where he feels the sport is headed and its rumored Olympic potential.
Le has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting fighters in the sport of MMA. His third round TKO of legendary champion, Frank Shamrock, which aired live on SHOWTIME on Saturday, March 29th, earned the Vietnamese-born fighter the Strikeforce (www.Strikeforceusa.net) world title and marked his greatest professional victory to date.
Le’s role in the forthcoming release, Fighting, co-starring Terrence Howard, will mark Le’s debut on the silver screen. Le was also recently cast in the silver screen adaptation of the smash hit video game franchise, Tekken, slated for release next year.
