Then, after Cung Le’s third round TKO over Sammy Morgan, Shamrock came out and both he and Le addressed the live crowd. Le issued a challenge and Shamrock accepted.
While Le vs. Shamrock appears certain to happen in ’08, It’s uncertain as to when the match might take place. Shamrock could potentially face Santiago and has also expressed an interest in fighting Renzo Gracie in a rematch following their controversial EliteXC bout last February. There have also been rumors that Le could end up fighting Phil Baroni in either February or March, although the rumors have yet to be addressed by Strikeforce.
It really doesn’t matter if it’s gonna be Shamrock or Baroni … either way Cung Le is en route to a beating. I’m not saying that Le is a bad fighter, but how any fighter can go from fighting relative scrubs like Jason Von Flue and Sam Morgan to top tier fighters is beyond me. That would be like me going from dating Kirsten Dunst to Gisele BÃ¼ndchen … and while I pulled that off, I just don’t think Cung can. Because he’s just not as awesome as me. Fucking A!
