The ink is almost dry on a rematch between former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le (6-1 MMA, 6-1 SF) and Scott Smith (17-6 MMA, 3-1 SF) for a card slated for June 26 on Showtime.

Sources close to the event told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that both fighters have agreed to the contest, which could take co-main event status, and await bout agreements. MMAjunkie.com initially reported the possibility of the bout in April.

The June 26 event, titled "Strikeforce and M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Werdum," is slated for the HP Pavilion in Strikeforce's home city of San Jose, Calif. As the title suggests, a long-anticipated showdown between top-ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko and Brazilian challenger Fabricio Werdum headlines.

alot of these fights are losses for cung le. miller gets it to the ground and done. lindland might lay on him for 3 rounds. jacare destroys him on the ground. radach tho might be a great fight. smith is almost like kobe. hes a buzzer beater. he waits till the last second and goes full blast and is somewhat succesfull at it. its a hard pick tho. cung le might be more defensive now cause he gets smith's style. but smith is always dangerous.

alright i did some research and i stand corrected but in my defense... everytime i watch him fight it seems like he is absolutely scared to get taken down. i still stand by some of my original statements tho. jacare murders him on the ground period. i think miller can take him out on the ground. and maybe linland doesnt but still. the majority of what i said was true so you sir fail. lol

Yeah, Jacare beats him (because he gets him down). I agree with you there. Cung Le's takedown defense gets a lot of buzz though (maybe undeservedly?), so I don't know if the other two have the chops to get him there. (It literally takes four seconds to knock Lindland out anymore.)

I'm interested in this fight. Le was putting a clinic on Smith before he slowed down. Speed cannot be his only defense against a guy with one-shot power like Scott Smith.

I see this fight going the same as the last one except for the ending. Le will finish it this time.
