“Right now I’m just going to focus on the movies because I got like three other movies lined up. I’m a martial artist first, so I come up through MMA, and I’m very grateful. I know where my roots are, but because of MMA I’m able to do this, so I got to take advantage of it. We’ll see me back in action sometime soon or sometime down the line.”

So what hes saying is, hes a matial artist first, but movies come first? Um. Ok.

I wish hed concentrate on fighting though, i cant wait for Anderson to destroy the hype.

At first glance, there really isn't much competition in Strikeforce to challenge Le anyways. Maybe Misaki, Shamrock, or Scott Smith. However, Strikeforce does a lot of co promotion and brings in new fighters consistently, so i'm sure they could set up some good fights for Le to defend his title. That being said, if Cung decides to definatly sit out all of 2009, i'd like to see him stripped of his title.

I hope he fights soon his window of opportunity is closing. He is getting older by the day I would like to see him fight some more MW guys to see how good he is.

He needs to focus on fighting. Ring rust is horrible on guys moving up

The dude is a champion, his priority needs to be his title that he claims was so important to him for so long.

Aw man.....WTF!!! How are you going to win a belt after only 6 Professional MMA Bouts and then basically drop it to the wayside to make movies that are mediocre at best!! Cung Le has a ton of MW's to fight....Lawler, Smith, Ninja, Noke.....to name just a few that are in/near his org.

Not surprising he wants to make some money. His hype has hit a plateau. It's only a matter of time before he's exposed in mma.

Don't get me wrong- Cung Le definitely has legitimate skills, but I think he's hyped to be way more than he actually is. I'd pick Misaki over him any day of the week.

I've said that before too, Misaki is a bad matchup for Le, as if Akiyama, Kang even Frank Shamrock if he'd actually have taken Le down (which he refused to do....)

Strikeforce should strip him of his belt if he continues to not fight. His last fight was freakin 9 months ago and nothing is stopping him from fighting. Defend your belt or give it up. GSP, BJ and Anderson would get insulted up and down if they didn't fight for this long for basically no reason, not an injury or filming TUF or something but movies?? come on Cung

why so? i think cung is a better striker than misaki, and he likes to stand and bang.


akiyama on the other hand though, is a total different story
