    From everything I've seen he's a real class act.

    My only fear is that he's entering the game too late to make it big, but hell, Couture was doing good at 40.

    Cro Cop went from kick boxing to MMA later on and has done well. Le should be good, how good remains to be seen.

    He needs a lot of work and he knows it but in the Vid said MMA was his new passion. That and movies (acting in them)

    I thought this fight was better than his first one. Brian actually pressured Le and tried to take the fight to him a few times. I thought Le handled himself well but I would still like to see him fight someone he hasn't already beaten in SanShou.

    Why anyone doubted this man's ability to compete is beyond me. He has very solid striking and I think with a couple more fights he will get used to throwing knees and elbows.

    He had what looked like about 5 opportunites to throw knees to the guy's face, but decided to just let go and back off. He probably could of ended the fight a lot sooner.

    Very exciting fighter, and seeing him in the UFC would be excellent.
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    That he is, but he still fights soup cans. My friend who attended the fight, a former semi pro boxer, called the fight a set up. I've attended half a dozen strike forces in person, and all of Le's matchs were against guys that had done something else- and this was their first or second fight. I couldn't even get one of my friends to go, once he heard Le was fighting. It's not that he can't fight, it's that his opponents are no where near the same Caliber- his first two MMA opponents are both guy's he knocked out.

    Good fighter or no, he's clearly a good businessman. At the very least, his handlers are.

    But his opponent in this fight has 15 MMA fights on his record and lots of wins in KOTC etc. Cung Le may have pwned him before in San Shou, but the other guy was much more experienced in MMA so I would consider him a pretty worthy opponent.

    I wonder if the inclusion of throws in San Shou helped Cung Le avoid what has happened with Kit Cope and his foray into Mixed Martial arts. Being an excellent striker does not always equate with MMA success and Cung seems to recognize this. Also, this is not a bash on Cope, I only pointed out similarities in their prior martial arts experience and the differences in MMA success they have achieved to this point.
