Cung Le is one cool dude. First of all, the guy is a major action star. I’m talking movies, like legitimate acting roles, where he acts and fights. No. 2, the guy is old. Call me crazy, but I love to see an older gentleman get in the Octagon and start mixing up with the younger guys to show the up-and-coming generation that he still has some fight left in him. While it is fairly obvious to the fans and Le himself I bet that he will never be a title contender, people are still excited to see him fight. He has a very fan-friendly style with throwing all sorts of crazy spinning and kicking attacks, and like I said, the guy is a movie star. With that being said, his next fight against Michael Bisping is a horse of a different color.
Bisping truly believes that one day he will be champion. While the rest of us here on planet Earth know that will never happen, Bisping is still hungry to get there. I don’t know if Le has that sort of focus on the fight game anymore, so I have to ask the question: Can Le beat Bisping? I think that he can, and none of the reasons have to do with the fact that Le is the better fighter.
Bisping has a history of choking when he gets a big fight. This is not even close to the biggest fight of Bisping’s career, but it is still the headlining fight for the card which means that the pressure is on Bisping to perform. The other reason is that Bisping has shown vulnerability to kicks, which just happen to be Le’s bread and butter. Le is sure to exploit this shortcoming, and it will only be a matter of time before one of Le’s heels catch Bisping smack on the jaw. Score another one for the old heads, because Le is going to teach Bisping a thing or two and I for one can’t wait to see it happen.
