    ON the other hand sanda has elevated kick catching to a high art form.

    Im still sticking with Wand. He has a solid ground game thats been tested at high levels. If Cung Le does overwhelm him, i'd expect him to take it to ground.

    Yeah but is this fight going to come down who's kickcatch-fu is stronger?

    Le likes to stay back and pick his shots until the KO is open, and with his advanced age, I doubt he will want to get crazy with a crazy **** like Wand...

    Although, he does have 1 punch KO power, and Wand a 1 punch KO chin. If Le manages to overwhelm him, I agree he will go to the ground, but he'll be there by himself.

    When you say he has a 1 punch KO chin, go have a look at who has put him out. I dont think Cung Le has power comparable to those guys.

    I don't think so. I'm just not expecting Kung to be vulnerable to getting his kicks caught like you suggested.

    Normally I would agree with that, but that's not the only factor. After your first concussion, the second comes easier, as does the third. Le has, or at least had, extremely under-rated power. Wand shouldn't take the gamble that being 39 has taken enough power from Le to not be a 1 punch threat, and should be relying heavily on defense and not at all on his ability to take punishment no matter who he fights.

    Im just saying. Its starting to sound more like if Le gets lucky, he might win.

    All I'm saying is Le throws kicks like boxers punch, and Wand's tendency to grab incomming feet means it shouldn't be a suprise if it happens.
