Cung Le Looks to Avenge His Only LossPosted on May 6, 2010, 08:19 PM by Joey Santosus
Being known as a fighter with a never back down approach to challengers, it should come as no surprise to anyone that when approached with a proposed rematch with his latest opponent Cung Le, Scott Smith was not the least bit reluctant to accept. According to MMAWeekly.com and confirmed by MMANews.com, this bout will be added as a co-main event to what is quickly shaping up to be an exciting card, co-promoted by Strikeforce and M-1 Global and scheduled to take place June 26th on Showtime.
Their initial fight took place back in December of 2009 and was very closely contested. Cung Le mangaged to maintain control in the first two rounds, only to be caught in the third, losing to Scott Smith by K.O.
Only a day removed since Strikeforce officially announced the much anticipated return of fan favorite heavyweight contender Fedor Emeilianko, his meeting with fellow heavyweight Fabrico Werdum will be the headliner for the event, while Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos also holds a spot on the card.
