At 5’10” and 180 pounds, Cung Le is not exactly a giant among men – although he’s pretty big for a Vietnamese guy. But trust me when I tell you this, you don’t want to be on the receiving end of anything he’s throwing your way.
Cung is one of the world’s greatest fighters. Bar none. I don’t care if we’re talking about boxing, MMA, Jiu Jitsu, or anything else. Pound for pound I’m not sure there is another man that can stand toe to toe with him in a ring for any amount of time. And his nearly perfect record pretty much underscores that point.
Before we get started, here is a little promotional video that gives some highli:
Now, here is an older fight against a Mongolian King that represented China to fight the US San Shou team. What is amazing about the fight is that you can watch as Cung slowly destroys the guy as the fight goes on. It’s very methodical. First he throws the guy around, then he works on his legs, then he just starts beating on him. Incredibly, as the fight draws to a close it actually seems like Cung is hitting the guy even harder!
Next, let’s watch Cung Le destroy Rudy Ott. In this little exhibition match you’re going to see how devestating Cung’s throws can be. He tosses Ott around the ring like a rag doll, and not only do some of these throws hurt, they are embarrassing, frustrating, and otherwise rattle the competition.
Here Cung takes on Mohamed Keita with the light heavyweight belt on the line. True to form, Cung puts Mohamed on the mat within about 10 seconds of the start of the match… and then he goes to work on him. By the end of the first round Keita is already starting to look bad, and by the beginning of the second round he’s looking mighty defensive.
And pretty soon we’re going to get to see Cung Le go up against Frank Shamrock for the Middleweight championship on March 29th! I’m telling you right now, if I wasn’t going to be speaking at WordCamp on the 29th I’d be in San Jose to see this fight. I’m a huge fan and this will probably be the highest profile fight ever for both of these men.
