You can mark March 29th on your calendar as the date you finally get to see Cung Le get his ass kicked. After fighting a couple mid-level bozos over the past two years, someone who doesn’t have Cung’s best interest in mind has decided that he’s ready to face Frank Shamrock, who seems like he’s still capable of whooping some serious ass when he actually feels like it.
No word yet on the amusing stunts Frank Shamrock plans on pulling to demean his opponent this time. For those of you who didn’t know, Frank Shamrock mercilessly taunted Phil Baroni regarding everything from his participation in gay glamor films to his marriage falling apart. As the fight closened he dressed his female assistant up as the New York Bad Ass and made a bunch of amusing youtube videos. In other words, this man is my fucking hero.
Of course, we’re still living in an age and time where making fun of someone for being Vietnamese doesn’t fly like making fun of Italian-Americans does. So we’ll see if Frank is going to be able to figure out some original and non-racist ways of making fun of Cung. Maybe he’ll use the homo card again?
