The stakes will be high when STRIKEFORCE closes out a spectacular 2009 with the return of one of the most prolific and exciting fighters in Mixed Martial Arts - unbeaten former STRIKEFORCE world middleweight champion Cung Le, who will face Scott "Hands of Steel" Smith in the main event of a star-studded lineup at HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA. on Saturday, Dec. 19, on SHOWTIME.
Joining Le (6-0) and Smith (16-6) will be three other outstanding and widely recognized 185-pound stalwarts, "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler (16-5), Matt "The Law" Lindland (21-6) and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza (10-2) as well as light heavyweight star (205 pounds) Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal (5-0). Lindland will face Souza in what represents both fighters' STRIKEFORCE debuts. Opponents for Lawler and "King Mo," whose start will also be his first with STRIKEFORCE, will be announced soon.
Lawler is rumoured to fight Benji Radach. 26 days to go and Strikeforce still doesn't have it's card together.Surfing Facebook at work? Spread the good word by adding us on Facebook today! https://www.facebook.com/Bullshido

It'll be fun to see Le back in action. I wonder if Smith will be the first one to actually get him on the ground.

Will this be on regular cable? Like the Saturday Night Fight with Fedor a couple of weeks ago?

The SF cards are getting better and better every time.

I saw him lose against Diaz, and I know he likes to bang, but i think he's got a wrestling background, doesn't he? Le's never been on his back, and it's a part of his game no one's tested yet. Smith would be a fool not to try a takedown.
Edit: Yes, I'm saying his previous opponents, namely Shamrock, were also fools for not doing the same.

Gonna need to rewatch the Shamrock fight, I remember Frank mostly standing there and trying to kickbox instead of taking it to the ground. I suppose it's been a while since I saw it.

I really hope CBS airs this. That last card was excellent and this one looks pretty good too. I cant wait to see Le fight again - I hope he's in shape!
