Cung Le is one of the biggest cross-over stars in all of MMA, having landed roles in several major motion pictures. Still, MMA is what has given Le such a market, and he knows the importance of his fight with Patrick Cote at UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II.
“I’m very honored to be part of this UFC card, 148,” Le said. “I’m here to fight. I’ve been training hard and I feel great. ALl the fans can expect lightning followed by thunder. I have no quit.”
Le has put together a 7-2 record in Strikeforce and the UFC, including capturing the Strikeforce middleweight title with a win over Frank Shamrock. Le’s UFC debut was a loss to Wanderlei Silva last year.
All seven of Le’s triumphs have come via stoppage, including three in the first round. He also has an undefeated kickboxing mark, having won all 17 of his matches.
