Famed kickboxer Cung Le (4-0) will look to continue an undefeated streak in MMA when he takes on former UFC fighter Sam Morgan (18-8) at a Nov. 16 Strikeforce event.

“Strikeforce: Four Man Enter, One Man Survives” takes place in San Jose, Calif. A broadcast partner for the event should be announced shortly.

It'll be good to see Le facing a guy who will be looking to shoot immediately. Morgan has a lot of his wins by submission (12 of 18), and if he can take Le down, it'll be his match to lose. Still, I'll take Le over Morgan.

Le's knowledge of sanshou and throwing will help a great deal against anyone's takedowns. My money is always on Le, unless he is fighting Anderson Silva. Then, my moeny stays in my pocket.

Sam Morgan can't win, i like the guy but seriously, he hasn't impressed me in any of his bouts in the UFC.

Sammy, Sammy, Sammy.. You don't fight for more than a year, and even before that you looked unimpressive against your UFC opponents, and instead of trying to get back on the horse slowly, and rack up some wins. I mean, weren't you and Jason Von Flue on the same season of TUF? If the somewhat capable Von Flue can't beat him, then you won't.. I see a brutal KO in the First round in Sammy's future.

This is seriously weak ffs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Th etalk was that Cung was going to get a real test this time, it was stupid last time out having Fryklund fight him but this is prolly more retarded as Sammy has LESS chance to get it to the ground, he may have a few wins by submission but he has weak wrestling and will simply get KTFO quickly, hope he cries when he wakes up again so that maybe he realises he needs to get better before taking big fights!

Yup, I agree to the extent that I think this will probably just be another win over a name opponent for Cung Le, but if Sammy is able to get it to the ground, his submissions are good enough that he at least has a chance of winning, although I dont think he would be able to hold Cung there for long.

I am not upset though at this match for Cung. I think this is a perfect match. Gary Shaw seems to be doing the right thing with Cung Le by bringing him along. It appears that they are building him up the right way.

Hope to see an exciting KO on a guy who just came off as a tool on TUF.

Go Cung LE!!!

I'm just glad to see Sam Morgan fighting again, think it's been a year or so since his last fight,I hope Morgan wins so we can see him in the UFC again(although he'd need more then just one win to get back in)

For Sam Morgan to win this fight,

He'd have to "The Squeeze" out a descision


(yeah, the joke sucks, but I felt like saying it)
