Tapout Radio: easy Cung easy go

strikeforce to offer Jake Shields interim middleweight title fight for October

Easy Cung, easy go.

It’s been nearly a year and a half since San Shou dynamo Cung Le usurped the 185-pound title from Frank Shamrock at the Strikeforce: “Shamrock vs. Le” event way back in March 2008.

To put things in perspective, Le won the title when Evan Tanner was still alive, Kimbo Slice was the star of Elite XC and Matt Serra was the UFC welterweight champion.

Yeah, it’s been a while.

One person who’s tired of waiting for Le to make his first title defense is former Elite XC welterweight champion Jake Shields, the grappling phenom who recently submitted Robbie Lawler in his Strikeforce debut to notch his twelfth straight win.

+1Now that Strikeforce is getting UFC type attention from the major media outlets he might come back if just to promote his "movies".

 Cung Le better get his C - Level celebrity ass back in the cage and defend that belt by 2010.  With all the changes happening in Strikeforce and the increase in buzz and publicity and the stunning new additions, Le's return could be just one more huge victory for Scott Coker.
