I had a chance to speak to one of Strikeforce’s and quickly rising MMA star Cung Le. Holding three bronze medals in San Shou kickboxing, Le started fighting in K-1 and has now broken into the MMA scene.

I hope he does well. He brings something new to the sport. From what I have seen, he is a really hard worker.

Gotta love Cung Le and his jumping spin kicks and crazy striking style. If he buckles down and devotes himself to his ground game for awhile I could see him being a very dangerous man in the MMA world

I'd like to see Cung fight some "real" opponents, but his highlight reel is awesome! Bad interview though.

Tony Fryklund isn't terrible but he's not at the level I speal of. It's funny you mentin the Freak because I was going to say "don't talk about Fryklund because he can't come close to competing at the top level of this sport.
