    Cung Le

    I dont think he gets the respect he deserves as being a pioneer and a legit bad ass. Cung would have cleaned the clock of early MMA guys. Ask Frank Shamrock and others that have fought and lost to an out of shape Cung Le years after he was a Sanshou Champion.

    Yes he got Rich and Frank Shamrock too.

    There are alot of current fighters and trainers that are seeking his advice today, not for his striking but for the clinch work. To clinch like that with full sized boxing gloves on is pure technique. Even some Judo guys are working with him.

    yes Wand is a different animal. Even without juice. That fight was close in the first two rounds as I saw it.

    I met Cung Le ten years back at a muay thai event - didn't even know what San Shou was until I saw him spar. Impressive skills and he seems to have humbled over time (which I appreciate - he was a bit arrogant when we met).

    Good fighter, could still be relevant IMO but is choosing to pursue other options outside the cage (eg. acting, entertainment). Definitely a pioneer as per what he did for martial arts.
