The last time fans caught a glimpse of Cung Le was in December 2009. He was fighting MMA journeyman Scott Smith in a Strikeforce event at the HP Pavilion. Saturday night, it was “like deja vu all over again” as the Vietnamese kickboxer stood opposite Smith at “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum.”
Although Le only had a 6-1 professional mixed martial arts record entering his mulligan with Smith, most questioned if the 38-year-old was already staring at his better days in his rear-view mirror.
At least for one night, Le silenced his critics by dominating a relentless Smith to earn an impressive 2ndRound TKO victory. Le was accurate and dynamic with his striking, as he punished Smith throughout their scrap.
