Le defeats Shamrock for Strikeforce middleweight championship

It was a roller coaster night of action last night at the HP Pavillion in San Jose as sanshou legend Cung Le defeated Frank Shamrock early in the second round, becoming the new Strikeforce middleweight champion. Le, an underdog in the bout against Shamrock, controlled the fight throughout – first outwrestling the older veteran and then outstriking him with an impressive array of flashy kicks.

The end came at 1:36 of the second round as Cung Le unleashed a devastating reverse spinning jump kick, followed by a traditional sanshou slam. The victorious Le stated that he felt his victory proved that his martial art “isn’t as gay as everyone says it is”.

In other results, Drew Fickett defeated Jake Shields with a flying knee to become EliteXC welterweight champion and Nick Diaz lost to Jae Suk Lim by omoplata.

  • RL Dookiefuck is RIGHT!

    You’re bored.

  • igorpunck

    Is it on youtube? where can i download it?

  • Jemaleddin

    Damn it, if you keep posting the results early, people won’t believe the fights aren’t real!

    Like when Diebold accidentally released the 2008 election results:

  • Tertio

    You fucker gave me a heart attack last night when i read your post. House was full of in laws and there was no way i could have watched it.

  • TKO Todd

    Damn I was spanning all over and pissed Showtime wasn’t showing the event. And then got excited that Le beat Shamrock. You had me fooled until that “my martial art isn’t as gay as everyone thinks” line.

  • Matt (but I signed up as Mr. Unbelievable Pants)

    I actually pick Le to upset Shamrock in this one.

  • EdenMachine

    I freaked on yesterday’s post, learned it wasn’t until next weekend and THEN I read the subject on this one and got EFFING FREAKED OUT AGAIN! lol fuckers haha I have no idea how I let myself fall for it twice in a row. lol

  • Spork

    I expect better on April fools.

  • Amy Robinson

    Is this really the best you can come up with FL? Your starting to lose me with dumb stuff like this. If there’s one thing about MMA, its that there’s virtually limitless story posibilities. In all honesty, I’m less likely to visit a site with irrelevant postings. And I think a lot of people are the same way. Just something to take into consideration.

  • MadMan

    fooled twice, regarding the same story…
    are you guys THAT good, or am I just THAT dumb?
    …hmmm ;)

  • ajadoniz

    u had me until reverse spinning jump kick. i laughed at diaz losing via omoplata lol

  • TKO Todd

    Amy needs to lighten up. Funny shit is the way to go. There are hundreds of sites with the same boring stories so its good to have something different.

  • ttt

    trying to see what it takes to get on mmaweekly again?

  • Amy Robinson

    ^ Just my opinion. But I’ve always looked to linker for different than the norm of MMA coverage. Stuff like this is done on the sherdog forums about every 2 minutes, so its humor is kinda lost on me.

    I’m all for linkers jokes, but they usually come with some good news or commentary attached. So I was a little disappointed when I log on today and didn’t get my usual dose of Fightlinker goodness.

  • phismx

    I know all ya dirty jokes, but I didn’t know you capable of dirty tricks.

  • fightlinker

    Basically this was just a joke re: my stupidity thinking that Strikeforce was Saturday night (and no that wasn’t a joke post, that was me being dumb)

    And as Ivan Drago said in Rocky 4:


    But I’m always happy to hear feedback :-) I know what yer talkin’ about Amy and normally you’ll get your standard fix alongside any wackiness like drunken posts or rants about bees.

  • hbdale309

    Hey Amy. STFU. Thanks so much.

  • Brian

    Jokes are great and this is not a serious site by any means, but in my opinion you went a step too far on this one. Too many beers equals stupidity such as this. Is there AA in Canada? :)

  • andres

    Hey amy STFU
    Haha everyone say it with me
    Hey amy STFU!
    Haha I saw le this morning I was like aye lil dick fuck u I hope u die haha
    Hey amy STFU haha
    Naw jk he’d get one of his much smaller and better fighters to kick me very hard then id knock his ass out flat
    Hey amy STFU! Hahaha

  • TKO Todd

    I thought it was great. The only thing better was the Luke Cummo getting suspended for his caffeine enemas. And far better than the night Ryan got drunk and blogged like he was dyslexic giving me a migraine.

  • Atom

    Do we have to wait till next week to find out whats about to pop out of Le’s rib cage in that picture? Looks like future Frank must do a little damage before he goes down.

    andres and hbdale: Being mean here is fine– WHEN YOU’RE FUNNY, which you two clearly are not. Amy is a fighter, and runs an mma site. You two…. what? play with each others balls?

  • godzillad

    Amy, this is Fightlinker’s way of adding their predictions for the show while playing on their own stupidity.

  • andres

    Hahaha atom keep in touch haha you’ll see hahahahahhaha

  • Thomas aka Hattori Hanzo

    Looks like The Alien is about to come out of Cung Le’s side.

  • Luke Cummo’s annus

    Didn’t fool me this time!
    Too many fake news :P
    I loved the one about Luke Cummo.:)

  • Stellar53

    Nothing against you Amy, but I think I found your problem……you are a Sherdog forum member!!!!

    With that said, We still love you Amy….and fightlinker, we better have a good day today on the website…

    You fooled me Saturday night, I was looking to watch it and searched for it… needless to say, you didn’t fool me yesterday…and Shamrock the Cock is going to beat Cum Le….

  • FL is getting really stupid

    Man what the fuck??? Your stupid pranks are getting stupider by the minute. I was youtubing like a mad man looking for the fight.
    This is another reason I’ve been spending more time on other sites, just too much stupidity here these days.
    I know one of you has ass cancer cuz your some ass-loving Homo’s but damn man, have some respect for the sport.

  • kentyman

    “But I’m always happy to hear feedback…”

    I’m not.

    All the bitching lately is becoming a buzzkill. If a particular post don’t float your boat, just shut up and wait for the next one. It’s not like every post after The Homo’s Guide to UFC74’s Main Events sucked balls. ;)
