Following yet another incredible come from behind win, Scott Smith may soon have to begin every walk to the cage with the theme song from "Rocky." The California based fighter has a tendency to hang around in every fight he's in and then at the crucial moment pull out a stunning victory.

The latest conquest for Smith was a third round knockout of former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le, who was getting the better of the fight for two-plus rounds, but when the window opened for Smith to explode he did just that.

Realizing he was down in the fight, Smith knew the third round was the key. That's when he finally implemented his trainers' game plan and then unloaded the shot heard all over San Jose.

i picked him and bet on him to win too making that come from behind miracle all the more exciting when i watched it.

Gotta love that guy. He can take a whole lot of punishment and at the end still dish out the KO. I think the comparison to rocky is pretty much a bullseye here, underdog, fan favorite, always gets beaten up, wins in the end.

WAR SMITH (and thanks for the cold 550$ i made on the fight, gotta love em' at +300)

Smith proves again that he can hang in there and then gut out an very exciting finish. His fights with Lawler were great , this fight was great. I want to see more from "Hands of Steel"
