Cung Le defeats Frank Shamrock…

30 Mar

…and is new EliteXC/Strikeforce middleweight champion. Le put on a crazy display of all types of kicks from his arsenal, keeping Shamrock at bay with front kicks pretty much the whole fight. Shamrock caught him once with a huge overhand right and staggered Le in 3rd round. I actually thought that was the beginning of the end for Cung Le. But less than a minute after getting his legs buckled, Le caught him with a huge kick that snapped Frank’s wrist and put an end to the former champ’s reign at the top of the middleweight division, as he couldn’t answer the bell for the 4th round. Big mistake for Shamrock to try and not get it to the ground. For some reason, he wanted to show the fans he could stand with Cung Le. Bad idea. Now at 35, his arm is going to require surgery before he gets back in the cage. Hope he returns soon because he’s one of the most exciting fighters in MMA. Congratulations to Cung Le. I linked the video to the pic above so check it out before it’s removed.
