This past week was a very busy one for the UFC with a great number of fights being announced. With all the activity throughout the week, one item that may have slipped through the cracks was the news that Cung Le would be moving to the UFC and fighting Vitor Belfort at UFC 139.
In July, Le, speaking to MMAWeekly.com, expressed a desire to fight for the UFC, specifically saying he wanted to fight for the UFC in San Jose on the November 19 card. The fight will be Le’s UFC debut after fighting exclusively for Strikeforce since 2006, compiling a record of 7-1.
Le, the former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion recently spoke about his upcoming UFC debut.
"I'll be in San Jose for UFC 139 and I'm fighting Vitor Belfort. I'm very excited and honored to be a part of the UFC. I want to thank Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta for the opportunity and I'm going to fight my heart out. What Vitor says doesn't bother me. He can talk all he wants. We'll take care of business on November 19. Let him talk. I don't like to talk so he can do all the talking. I'll let him have that job and we will work it out in San Jose. Vitor is very dangerous, but I'm very dangerous too. We have two dangerous guys in the ring and we are going to see which one of us is more dangerous." – for the full interview see Heavy.com.
