Cung Le Will Teach Michael Bisping a Lesson

Cung Le

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Predicted Holly Holm Would Knock Her Out

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars is the first woman ever to win a gold medal at the World Judo Championship doing so in 1984. She is also the mother of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Further she may be the most vocal critic of Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.

Ronda Rousey’s Coach Breaks Silence on KO Loss to Holly Holm

We haven’t heard much from Ronda Rousey or her camp about the loss Rousey suffered to Holly Holm in November. Sure Rousey recently hosted Saturday Night Live and briefly addressed her UFC 193 knockout loss in her monologue but as far as detailed comments on the fight there has been mostly silence. That changed earlier this week when Rousey’s trainer Edmond Tarverdyan spoke to ESPN. Tarverdyan took a lot of heat in the days following the fight. Most of that heat was generated when his fighter bloodied and breathing from her mouth sat down on her stool at the end of Round 1.

Dana White Responds to Jose Aldo’s Demand for Conor McGregor Rematch

On Thursday UFC president Dana White appearing on the “Opie and Jim Norton” radio show said “It’s one of those things; we made the fight the first time and he got hurt and had to pull out. Then we made it again and it ended in 13 seconds. It’s tough to make that fight again right away. Plus Conor wants to be a two-belt champion so he wants to fight dos Anjos.” While White didn’t totally rule out an Aldo versus McGregor rematch his comments make the fight seem unlikely. McGregor’s next fight will take place on March 5 when he moves up to lightweight to try and capture Rafael dos Anjos’ title.
