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.

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