I watched the fight on the fight network here in Canada, I have to say that was great.

Both guys are entertaining, but I have to say Le impressed me. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen him fight and I like what I saw.

I read Shamrocks lips when he said I broke something, but I couldn’t tell until later that it was his arm at the end of the 3rd round. That guy must kick like a mule!

I’d like to see him fight another quality opponent again.

Yo Mama: Frank Shamrock is not a complete bitch. He has walked through many fighters and has paved the way for the new mma fighters. He’s a dick, but a damn good fighter. I dare you to call him “bitch” to his face, cuz u would get your head taken off. Congrats to Cung Le, you deserve it

It was sad to see that Shamrock was stupid enough to try and beat Le at his own game.

WTF?

Why not take him to the ground and make him a bitch. I don’t thing Cung could beat: St. Pierre, Hughes, Sera, Sanchez, Koscheck, Paresean, or a slew of others who would make him a bitch on the ground.

Shamrock deserved to lose for being stupid.

I agree with Rich S. …Shamrock got cocky and the s*** was entertaining but if he took him to the ground he could have won……….he tried to beat Cung at his own game and he got what he deserved…….Rematch he will think a little more and do what he does best………you don’t mess around like that when you are the champion…..now look at you

Cung is a one trick pony. All he can do is kick. If Frank would’ve swallowed his pride and stop trying to beat a great standup fighter at his own game he could’ve won. He should’ve spent more time trying to take Cung down instead of boxing him. Cung is WORTHLESS on the ground. That being said, it’s hard to consider him well rounded.

great fight…..watched dis s*** on showtime….ya’ll say Cung Le aint got the power and i dont understand that..i’ve watched this dude fight many times and he knocks opponents out…maybe not with one shot but for real now… who da one fallin on da way back to the corner lookin all stupid in the end…..the stronger guy?? maybe…those kicks at the end of the round really hurt Shamrock…..and dont forget the spinning backfist…anyway……i thought Cung Le took some of Frank’s best shots in da 3rd and looked like he wuz ready to be outta there but the toll that the kicks took on Shammy proved to be too much……but watch da end closely….the last two kicks left shamrock looking really dizzy and foolish…..lol. and that def finished him..dont even worry bout the arm at that point……..m*********** cung le…..bring on serra or any of them dudes….you seen da take down defense….if you aint seen it do your research cuz many people try to take Cung down but keep this in mind…..He has never lost in any sanctioned fight in any league or anything……….EVER…..

Cung Le would have to be the most entertaining fighter in the MMA today…power or no power his combo’s are awesome

Huan Says, in 3-30-2008 at 04:12:26 from 67.184.222.68    

Crusher… Are you kidding me? Have you seen cung le pro record. He owned san shou, fighting 18 fights with out a loss. Have you seen anyone does that in MMA? Cung won six fights without loss in MMA. Frank is an expert at ground and pound and still get owned, just like ortiz vs. liddell. You think Liddell or Cung Le is easy to take down? You think they just train on their strikes or you think they also spend some time with their takedown defense?
Give a man props when props is due. Cung is the sh!t… he’s 24-0. Even my most favorite fighter Fedor still have a loss (fedor shouldn’t have bled so easy)

Tony, Sammy, and Frank all go downs, after getting kick at for 10- 15 mins. Those are strong and technical kicks.

Next time post some facts….dumbass!

nok Says, in 3-30-2008 at 05:33:44 from 72.191.144.73    

Great fight! I predicted that Cung would win because, #1 Frank has never fought anyone that have feet flying around your face consistantly. #2, it is hard to block a kick, since it lot more powerful. #3. he blocks his face, he got kick in the stomach. he block the stomach, he got kick in the face. he was trying not to show that it was hurt, but it hurt like hell. he will feel it in the mornin.
Frank is good fighter, he is good stand up too, dont forget that. Basicly, Cung’s foot do the talking, who need hands?

good fight.

that was so f****** loose, for a title fight it doesnt say much about the technique skills of the fighters in this organization, u dont see ufc champs walkin around the ring with there hands down throwing loose wild punches. the kick trip was good quailty but why didnt he jump on top and finish him ?

Props to Cung’s take down defense. Its not that Frank didn’t want to take him to the ground, he just couldn’t. A verbal submission is so apt. I wonder if this is Cung’s first win by submission.

KOB Says, in 3-30-2008 at 07:40:18 from 71.224.178.4    

Shamrock fought Le’s fight & couldn’t handle him in the stand-up. Le threw a ton of kicks & didn’t seem to tire at all. There must be some power to them if he busted up Shamrock’s arm. To beat Le you had better get him on the ground or move to your left & throw hard left hooks or straight right hands. Right now he is the best striker in MMA.

field_negro Says, in 3-30-2008 at 09:08:47 from 196.217.84.184    

weren’t you listening.. the commentators remarked on the, “lack of a a.c. ligament in franks knee..” probably made him leary of the shoot and cung was a better wrestler. that’s probably what prevented frank from taking it too the ground in the closing minutes.. the broken arm is what messed up his game plan..

mygif
brian Says, in 3-30-2008 at 09:45:03 from 66.169.39.94    

What I think will be understood only by real mma fight fans is that Frank’s plan was working until the arm breakage. He was giving Cung a false sense of security and Frnk landed the right hand late in the 3rd. It was looking like FRank was planning to carry the fight to the 4th or 5th before really going for the kill. Watch the Tito/Shamrock or the Horn/Shamrock fight. He did the same thing. I’m not sure if FRank will ask for a rematch though seeing he will be out of action for 6months to a year and by then his age becomes more of a factor. Fantasy fight… Shamrock age 29 vs. Cung age 27!!!!

TRC Says, in 3-30-2008 at 10:08:30 from 72.38.131.2    

Watching the fight I was wondering why Frank did not take him down and thought that he deserved the loss for being so stupid. However, as one of the commentators mentioned, his knee injury might have prevented him from being able to take him down.
I think the old Frank would have easily won. I think it is time for most of the 90s UFC guys to retire, it is getting embarrasing watching all of these guys that use to be great getting beat by mid-level fighters. I guess we will have to see this again with Coleman Lesnar.

I’m hearing a lot of love for Cung Le but seriously he wouldn’t stop Dan Henderson from taking him down and he wouldn’t stop Anderson Silva from submitting him. Both these fighters are highly intelligent when it comes to matching up fighting styles.

Hey field negro, weren’t you watching? Frank’s arm got busted with 3 seconds left in round 3. How did that mess up his game plan? Le might be a better wrestler, but Shamrock is better at submissions. Don’t make excuses for a damaged knee.

Tremor Says, in 3-30-2008 at 13:38:13 from 71.205.252.141    

Impressive but Cung le obviously needs to work on his ground game… I mean he didn’t even have confidence in himself to close in on shamrock after he knocked him down. Also I think shamrock exposed his clinch in the third round… I think with a bit of training he could add some damaging knees to his already wide array of strikes.

Wow this clearly shows the C-List talent out there. First 2 rounds there was clearly a lot of sexual tension between the 2. It was just annoying how much Shammy was smiling and wanting to high-five Le. So stupid. Plus Sham’s knee kicks were worthless.
Oh and Cung would get his anus r**** by Silva. He wouldn’t have a f****** prayer.

mu_shin Says, in 3-30-2008 at 16:15:51 from 71.62.165.218    

I’ve seen Cung Le fight san shou and blow through opponents like they were amateurs in a pro game. Shamrock stood with him for all he was worth, and if he could have taken him down, don’t you think he would have, rather than absorb all those kicks? No power? How did that arm get broken in two places, requiring a plate to put it back together? Wishful thinking?

Anderson Silva/Cung Le will never happen unless Dana White and UFC change their world domination strategy and allow fighters of merit to meet, rather than controlling the contests by contractual shenanigans and legal maneuvering. Just ask Randy Couture… But I’d love to see that match, may the best man win.

For you UFC nut-huggers, all the current ufc champs and top fighters have loss in their career. These are champs were either an average boxer, average muy thai, average boxer, or wrestler and found their niche in MMA. Cung Le is the king of san shou (never loss) and now he’s the king a MMA (never loss). Can you say that s*** about anderson silva, george st. pierre, rampage, couture, and big nog? These people got their ass whip bad before.
How can you hate cung le that have 24 wins and no loss. Did Cung fight all toddlers? No… He fought all athletes that were all same size and probably train as hard as him. Maybe Cung does an extra set or run an extra mile in the gym; we don’t know. The point is… he whipped all their ass. Nothing you can say that can take away Cung Le career. You should do some research before you make some comparative argument or post negative comments about Cung.
Cung Le didn’t use any of his thrown that he famous for in any fight yet, he still have lots of trick in his sleeve.

frank held true to his word [ego?] and decided to keep it standing. dumb move- cost him the fight and a broken arm. but to his credit [and to my surprise], he was humble after defeat and praised cung.

for me, the fight didnt answer the most glaring question- what happens when cung’s on his back?

i’d love to see a rematch. on cbs, no less. would make for great ratings. frank should get it to the ground as quickly as possible.

ken thats the crapist thing i have ever heard of Just beacuse he has never lose does not mean he is the best it just means he has not been out match yet and if he fought Anderson Silva he would be destroyed before the end of the first round came. Six fights and this is the first well know fighter, Paulo Filho is 16 and o and he is not better then Anderson Silva.

I guarantee you Ken if Cung Le joined the UFC, he would eventually get his first loss. I’m not knocking on Cung Lee, not at all. I actually like Cung Le (I’m Vietnamese myself), but i think Cung Le hasn’t faced the competition that the UFC has to offer. we haven’t seen Cung Le face the likes of Dan Henderson or Anderson Silva yet. I really do hope he joins the UFC so he can face that type of competition and then we can see how good in MMA he is.

Also a lot of UFC champions aren’t just average at anything.

jhackett44 I agree with you, Frank Shamrock was really annoying by how cocky he was. I’m really glad Cung Le won. I really hate cocky fighters like that.

dont take away credit but dont give him more than he deserves. he deserves mad credit but dont put down other fighters that he would have a good match with if not beat him..and no fighter can say thier from this organization or the other everybody started from somewhere small unknownlow budgeted and what nor and just made it to where ever thier at now becasue of the hard work they put into what they do..alot of you ppl are just plain stupid

I agree that frank should have tried more take downs, but when you opponent is Cung Le – you can’t get that close, he’ll kick you in the ribs. Franks problem was his arrogance thinking he could out kick and punch Cung, thats just not going to happen. I’ve read a lot of comments about Le’s inability to KO people, this is a HUGE misconception. Cung choose not to go for the KO, he’s a technician and a showman. His background in Sansho focus scoring points from kicks, punches, and throws – so when he enters the ring he wants to put on a show. If there is any question of the power of his kicks, ask Frank about the broken arm. Imagine if Shamrock had not been able to block those kicks, he’d be waking up from them tomorrow.

Cung Le is STILL a San Shou fighter (although the best). When he gets his black belt in BJJ he will be a force in the MMA.

Neither one of these 2 would last 2 minutes with Anderson Silva. Strikes or submissions, Silva is the best pound for pound for a long long time.

Anderson Silva has lost by 3 disqualifications and the one real loss was a despiration flying scissors heal hook and silva was winnin that fight up to that point beatin the s*** out of yushin okami…silva has never been dominated. Cung Le does have great throws though

…. put cung le in there with anderson silva… man you people are fools. And I would LOVE to see cung le torn to pieces by anderson. Frank is following in Ken’s footsteps, his ego fuels his fire, and his macho bullshit gets him beat.

I really don’t care what Le has done in San Shou- it doesn’t matter. Just like Hendersons wrestling accomplishments don’t matter.

Le is 6-0 in MMA- and I’m sorry Ken, but MANY fighters start out 6-0 in MMA. It’s a long list that Le is now on. Let’s see him defend the title a few times and against some more top competition.

This does not cement any legacy in MMA this is merely the FIRST step.

Buck Says, in 3-31-2008 at 02:11:13 from 76.99.7.145    

If you knew Cung Le record, he has never i repeat NEVER been taken down by a submission before. Frank tried to take him down from behind in the first round and he failed.

to all of you…do you know what shitokan is? it is a triathalon of martial arts where you kickbox one round, wrestle another and then do a mma style round….cung has competed in this for years and won yet he has no grappling? yah that makes sense…and sanshou(where le is the greatest of all time) is striking with takedowns and throws…watch cungs sanshou fights and then say he easily could be taken down…oh and no power in his kicks or hands?!!!!! his first 5 mma fights he was 5 and 0 with 5 kos…please do some research before you give opinions about a fighters ability…and anderson silva has 0 count them 0 kickboxing championships yet hes a better striker…and even though mma math makes no sense, just to say something interesting: cung le destroyed frank shamrock, shamrock destroyed baroni, baroni ko’d ryo chonan, and chonan submitted ANDERSON SILVA…cung makes an mma fight look like a Kung Fu movie and isnt that what deep down we all want? A champion who can do all those incredible spinning punches and kicks yet be effective unlike all the other tae kwon do or karate guys that tried flashy techniques and ended up getting embarassed in mma… Cung is great for mma and is a gentleman in and out of the ring who has the potential to be a complete LEGEND…lets just watch and see

seriously, i dont kno how so many peeps can say that le is the king of mma.
do u know how many of the big names in mma started out with a 6-0 record?
there’s a grip. and sum are not even big names.
granted he beat frank, and u dont get bigger than that, but do u think that frank really fought like he should’ve?
plus how can u say he’s well rounded when he hasnt really proved himself on the ground?
anyway….good fight and there should be many more matchups to come between them.
frank should’ve fought more instead of doin all that smiling, p****-footin s***.
its funny how fighters always gotta feel like they gotta stand up with someone to prove how good they are…nobody ever challenges or tries to go to the ground to prove it that way.

Buck –

This is MMA. He will be taken down and when he does, it ain’t gonna be pretty.

Right now EliteXC is spoon feeding Cung Le because he has such a huge following and they want to capitalize on that. He’ll be tested eventually though. They can’t continue to baby this guy. At some point he’ll have to take on a top 5 or top 10 fighter.

Don’t get me wrong. His stand-up is extraordinary. Not only the laser targeted kicks but his hands and ability to avoid close combat is what makes this guy a world champion.

The great thing for us is that he always puts on a show.

every fighter loses eventually.. cung le is great.. but he wouldnt last with silva…. shamrock really isnt that great of a fighter.. franklin/okami and silva would all wreck him.. id like to see cung li vs franklin or okami.. hes not ready for silva yet..

people are dumb. judging fighters are there past losses is dumb as hell.. who cares if silva lost to chonan by some crazy flying knee bar.. doesnt mean s***.. in current day.. cause in current day.. silva has beaten all his UFC oponnets with before the 3rd round.. hes finished them all!! franklin twice.. henderson lutter, leben.. all destroyed.. cung li vs silva would be good.. cung li is a good fight matched up against anyon

I love UFC. they have the most fan, the most money, therefore they have the best fighters.
But I don’t see why you fools doubting Cung Le. Did I say Cung Le can beat the s*** out of top UFC fighters? No… but I would love to see, Cung always put on a show.
I just don’t like the fact that people post negative comments about Cung. These are the same people that post negative comments about Anderson Silva when he whipped Franklin for the first time.
Cung Le is undefeated champ. He dominated San Shou almost a decade, that is all I will say.
FelixWu… Can you name a current champs that dominated a previous sport for more than five years? Don’t give me some bullshit that the guy won some tournament over a weekend.

Love all these Cung bandwagoners. Cung Le is an extremely talented striker, but something just wasn’t right with this fight. Frank just wasn’t trying, he had several instances to capitalize on either landing a big shot or taking Le down. I think if Shamrock really wanted this fight he would’ve taken a lot more chances in landing some big strikes or takedowns and it would’ve made this fight more enjoyable to watch.

that was an excellent fight! nobody shouldn’t be talking crap about both fighters because for one,…frank is a legend in the mma sport and well rounded, second cung le is a true MARTIAL ARTIST! if anyone know’s what that means!!!if you guys ever watched all cung le’s fights in k-1 and shan shou, then you’ll know what i’m talking about! the only mma fighter who really uses his martial art skills to fight! but the next challenge for him is the ground game…that’s if the opponent can take him down!!!!!!!

well, if you are a fan of someone, and they happened to get beat, that will take atleast two weeks to recovered. In the mean time, I forgive you for saying, Silva will beat Cung before the round one is over. Two weeks from now, come back and try again, and if you still have the same way of looking at things, you need to goto hospital and get your head check. Cause you are seriously insured by the defeated syndrom of your fighter. It is OKAY. Silva can BE beat by any fighers, including Frank. like Cung Said, ‘it is my night!’ just remembered those words from great fighter himself. ‘I kick through him, because I wanted to win.’

Huan Says, in 4-1-2008 at 12:39:31 from 67.184.222.68    

Before the fight, you ppl said Shamrock gonna destroy Le. Now after the fact, you said Shamrock is OLD, not a top fighter, and didn’t try his takedown. WTF! Why do you feel like putting bad comments about Le and now Shamrock? Shamrock is a great fighter and a great guy. Do you hate Le that bad to put both fighters down?
Now you claiming Silva gonna beat Le. For betting point of view, Le would be underdog vs. Silva. Just like he was underdog vs. Shamrock. That’s why I had $300 on Le vs. Shamrock. Now he beat Shamrock, I have $500 in my pocket and you have your foot in your mouth. So don’t try to post anything that didn’t happen.

Who is dumb enough to lie on his back to get slaughtered by the opponent??? You??? Me??? Hell no!!! They laid on their backs because they couldn’t stand. The reason Cung Le has never gotten down on his back is because he has developed some awesome escape techniques. How many fighters could escape Shamrock’s grip like Cung did? Of course, as a fighter, you would hope that your escape techniques never fail. But yeah, you would avoid falling on your back at all cost!!!!

After watching silva fights with different opponents when he got OWNED by two ASIAN fighters who did NOT show the aggressively precise moves like Cung Le, I am sure that a match with Cung Le WILL definitely destroy silva whose losers like frank and others were fighting like girls (no deadly accurate kicks and strikes). I WILL put money on Cung Le instead of silva who is just a jj copycat from Asian fighters.

Well I have been a fan of cungs for awhile. Ever since my bro showed me him I was like thats the bruce lee of MMA and I can tell when someone is exceptional seeing as I am aslo a fighter. I knew cung would win hes not a showmen he gets things done like a real fighter. He doesnt show off just handles business. Shamy there was having to much fun but when he started feeling the pain and power of cung he had to get serious but it was 2 late. I myself am from cali and cali is taking over mma a lot of the great fighters today in mma are all coming from cali kind of like urijah faber…I can even admit he would drop me like a bad habit. I love my cali fights. grats to cung hes the man.

Bruce Lee once said “what ever you learn is your, doesn’t matter where it comes from.” or something like that… Copycat? We are all copycat.
I definitely have my money on Cung Le; he’s still underrated. I guess MMA world still couldn’t believe a phenomenon. Even the commentator interview cung after the fight, he said Cung’s style would be frustrating matching up with his. Cung brought striking like Royce Gracie brought grappling to MMA, and Bruce Lee brought it on big screens. I guess in five years I hope to see majority top fighters have sanshou in their martial art background.

The best defense agianst the take down is punch that fool in the face.

for all those saying that cung has no ground game, i wouldn’t say that. i would say it’s unproven. no one has tested him yet. i agree frank’s ego got in his way in trying to stand toe to toe against cung, but until someone actually takes cung down and beats him on the ground, you can’t say s***.

mygif
al Says, in 4-7-2008 at 00:09:45 from 71.164.172.26    

watching it again. it looks like frank got his wrist broken with 9 seconds left in the 3rd. you see him back up as soon as he blocks that kick from cung. what’s amazing is in the last flurry he throws a right. i bet that s*** hurt if his wrist was already broke!

anyways, i look forward to cung’s next fight!

Pete Says, in 4-7-2008 at 11:30:59 from 207.35.6.2    

I think Frank would own this fight, only reason Le won was because it never went to the ground. Frank held his own for 3 rounds still trying to prove his point, he had a couple of instances where he could’ve taken down Le and finish it but never did. Oh well, Frank’s still the best!

Frank didnt get his ass kicked in any way! Nor did he got owned…

The fight was even the first 3 rounds where Frank didnt even try to get Chung to the ground, which I think he would have if he not broke his arm.

And yeah it was doctor stoppage so he didnt quit. I would like to see a rematch.

The truth is we really don’t know if Cung Le is well rounded or not because we have yet to see him on the ground. The problem is, no one can ever seem to get him on the ground and who knows, we may never see it, haha. But I congratulate both men in a great fight. I’m pretty sure there will be a rematch. I can’t wait to see it!

Wow you guys are nubs. “well rounded”? “complete fighter”? Can you people honestly be this ignorant?

Stupid Frank didnt take him down to prove a point. But the fool wasnt able to prove his point. Ego lost him that fight. On the ground, Frank would have easily submitted him in seconds. What a complete fool to stand up with Cung.

Rematch! Frank will win, via submission.

..duh.
