Le: I would still love to fight Anderson Silva


Cung Le has a formidable opponent in front of him this weekend in Michael Bisping, but should he win Le is only looking for big name fights before his career his over:

"Of course there is," Le tells the Great MMA Debate podcast about his interest in facing Silva. "He's one of the greatest. Sometimes styles matchup perfectly against other styles and Anderson just happened to find his kryptonite in Chris Weidman.  It just happened that his last fight ended really bad with that broken shin bone.  I'm amazed that he's back and ready to fight in January.

"For some reason if there's an opportunity to fight Anderson, of course I would love to fight the legend. He is a legend, I look up to him and it would be an honor to fight him."

Ive been calling for this fight forever now. Usually get the "your crazy, that's a huge mismatch" thing, but for anyone that knows whats what, this is not an easy fight for either man.Le is the much more decorated Striker and wrestler. Andersons game is standing and I don't see him having any advantage besides in the boxing maybe.Even 5 years ago this is a really hard fight for Ando.

Cung Le vs AS would be a phenomenal fight. Cung was the epitome of the traditional/flashy martial arts style and AS was by all accounts the best standup fighter in all of MMA. To see them fight, even past their primes would be considered a dream fight for many.

I have a feeling Le is not going to be fighting for 6 months to a year after his fight with Bisping.http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/thread/2355488/Cung-Le-looking-100-natural-pic/?&page=1
