A few days ago, Josh Thompson had this to say about the sparring sessions that would go on between Frank Shamrock and Cung Le:
When he used to spar with Frank back in the day, a lot of people will remember that he used to throw Frank around like a rag doll, like his little sister. It was almost a joke how bad he worked Frank over back then. I am sure Frank remembers that. Cung is a good wrestler, has great throws and he kicks like a mule.
Now before you believe that source, you should probably remember that Josh Thompson doesn’t like Frank Shamrock. He got suspended by the CSAC for wearing a ‘Frank Glamrock is my bitch’ shirt, and then Frank Shamrock punk’d him by outing him as gay during a Strikeforce broadcast.
Oh, and then there’s the fact that Cung Le has never thrown anyone around. The idea that he can throw someone like Frank Shamrock around is pretty far fetched standing on it’s own.
Of course, Frank Shamrock isn’t the kind of guy to let that kinda talk float around without a response of some sort, and thus we have the video above which apparently shows Cung and Frank sparring. It’s pretty dark and grainy so most of the time I can’t really tell who’s who but the general point of the video I think is that either Frank beats Cung up or Cung’s shots have no power?
Eh, I love Frank but his latest Cung smack videos have lacked the same sizzle as his Baroni ones.
