Smith vs. Le rematch scheduled for Strikeforce


NEW YORK (June 2, 2010) – Can Scott “Hands Of Steel’’ Smith, aka “The Comeback Kid,’’ do it again?

On Saturday, June 26, at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., on SHOWTIME®, Smith will attempt to make it two consecutive victories over Cung Le in a middleweight (185 pounds) rematch of one of the most incredible Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) comeback victories of all-time.

The eagerly anticipated return bout between Smith (17-6), of Elk Grove, Calif., and Le (6-1), of San Jose, will take place on an already-stacked Strikeforce and M-1 Global fight card that features the world’s No. 1 heavyweight and pound-for-pound MMA fighter, Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko (31-1),against two-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion and top-ranked superstar Fabricio “Vai Cavalo” Werdum (13-4) in the main event.

This is very true. Cung's isn't "conventional" with his Sanshou approach, and we ALL know how well people receive unconventional fighters (Machida, anyone?). This will be a true test to see if Cung really is a fighter at heart. He's never lost a match before in either career and with this being his first at his current age, I'm curious to see how he bounces back. I hope that he does.

Damn. I can't believe all the hatorade in here. I think Cung is one of the most exciting strikers in MMA, all organizations. If he puts time in the gym instead of films he'd be top 5 at 185. I think that's common knowledge and I'm hoping that's the plan.

This is almost as bad as case of "Can we do a re-write?" as the UFC doing BJ vs. Frankie II immediately.

Those kicks he was hitting with last time were the best we've ever seen in MMA. Givin' Chuck Norris nightmares, ya dig?

 As long as he keeps his hands up he'll be okay.  Cung's going to pick him apart again...
