Cung Le: I trained smarter, not harder

by Andrew Gladston | source:

“I think the biggest thing that affected me was I  wasn’t used to the heavy pounding,” Le told MMAWeekly Radio.

“It wasn’t during the fight that affected me, it was during training camp.  Training with bigger guys like King Mo and all the good fighters over there at AKA, you get banged up.  It seemed like I was getting injured every other week.  So definitely, that was the biggest part in being healthy for the fight.”

“I just want to compete at the highest level I could and perform to the best of my abilities.  I feel like I have a great training camp.  It’s not like I went from Wanderlei and started filming movies,” explained Le. “I healed up and got right back in there and changed my training regimen around to make sure that I realize I can’t just go 185 percent all the time and wear down the body.

“You got to rest, you got to recover and you just got to train smarter.  For this camp, I trained a lot smarter.  I’m in a lot better shape.  I’m going in without being all banged up.  Sparring with King Mo every other day took its toll on my body.”

TTT for Cung. I wish that he could have been in MMA earlier so people truly understand how talented this guy is.
