It was a great fight. Le's kicks were devastating. I was amazed he was able to land some effective side-kicks; not many MMA fighters throw side-kicks. Shamrock was being an ass everytime he landed something, but it was classical when Le kicked his mouth piece out. It sucked that Shamrock couldn't come out after the bell, I would've loved seeing his ass get knocked out...
I watched that fight, one of the best MMA fights I have seen. Much better than those 30 second Kimbo Slice BS fights.
Both fighters took some really hard shots.
After Cung le kicked out Shamrocks mouth piece, Cung le stepped back and allowed him to pick it up to the cheers of the fans.
They tried to claim Shamrock had a broken right arm from a Cung Le kick and couldn't continue. I don't know if we will ever know if that is true or not, but Shamrock took some wicked shots, some to the sides of his neck and they had some force to them. Cung Le who got rocked a few times as well.
Shamrock bragged he would go toe to toe with Cung Le and never try to go to the ground. That was a mistake and cost Shamrock the fight, possibly. I can't see how Shamrock was a 2 to 1 favorite.
Lets see what Cung Le can do on the mat, for he certain is awesome standing up and can take a punch.
Cung Le is a MMA Super Star after that match.
With Cung Le and Kimbo Slice, SHOWTIME has 2 very big Stars. And they have cute girl Gena Corona as well.
