Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le enjoyed an unblemished mixed martial arts career for a span of two plus years covering six fights. That all changed when the fighter turned actor battled Scott Smith at Strikeforce: Evolution last December. Victim of a great come-from-behind upset victory, Le is of course anxious to get back in there with Smith and avenge the only loss of his career.
“I”m hoping to get a rematch with Scott Smith ASAP,” Le said in a video interview for Strikeforce MMA.
Though he often takes long breaks in between fights due to his filmmaking career, Le says he’s ready to return to the cage and show people he’s still got it.
“I’ve been training hard. Since my last fight didn’t work out the way I wanted it to, but I’ve been training hard to make sure there’s a different outcome next time around.”
As to when we can next expect to see Cung Le fight again, the kickboxing ace hinted that he might make an announcement during Strikeforce’s return to CBS in April.
“I’m going to save my news until we have something announced,” Le said. “Maybe we’ll announce it April 17 at that fight. So right now, I”m training hard, and I’ll be back in the cage real soon.”
