After more than 20 months away from the fight game, onetime Strikeforce middleweight Champion Cung Le made the surprise announcement that he would be returning to action in December to take on the ever-dangerous Scott “Hands of Steel” Smith.

“I wasn’t planning to fight this year,” Le admitted to MMAWeekly.com. “I was getting ready to do a movie, a project that I’ve been working on from scratch – working with a writer on a script, getting a director – and the project got pushed to next year.

“My plan was to come back after I finished this project and start training to get back into the cage next year, but when I found out a couple weeks ago that the project would be pushed to next year, I spoke to (Strikeforce promoter) Scott Coker, and he asked me if I’d be interested in coming back.”

I am very excited to see Cung Le fight again. I think Cung is super-entertaining to watch.

I think Smith suits Cung Le's style and will probably get KO'd. He prefers to stand and slug which I'm sure Le will appreciate then exploit

Smith couldn't be anymore perfect for Le. Le needs to fight someone who has more than a tough guy's chance. Jesse Taylor would offer a new challenge to Le.

Lol at Jesse Taylor and this fight is a joke. Cung Le is going to destroy him. I would have rather saw him fight Robbie Lawlor.

Do you know anything about Jesse Taylor? Just the fact that he's an accomplished wrestler offers a new and probably frightening challenge to Le's abilities. I don't know who Robbie Lawlor is, but Le and Robbie Lawler would be great.

If u dont know who robbie lawlor is then how do u know it would be great
I think le is a little overated but im interested in the smith/le matchup. The matchup im really lookin for is diaz vs le. le has a decent sprawl so diaz couldnt take him down and le's kickboxing matches up well with diaz's boxing. i think it would be a great fight which probably wouldnt hit the ground till someone falls

That was just the long version of him pointing out a misspelling.
