    Was just going back on Rich Franklin's record and remembered the last fight was with Cung Le.
    It's been awhile since we've heard anything from or about that guy.

    Anyone know if there is any news on the guy?

    "Cung Le is a Vietnamese-born American actor, retired mixed martial artist and Sanshou kickboxer. He competed as a middleweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, holding a record of 2–2 with the organization".

    There's your answer from a front page google search. End thread here.

    Wasn't he suing the UFC?

    Prime Cung destroying Frank Shamrock is one of my fave MMA fights though.

    Retired after the Bisping fight, good fighter but he's doing well in movies and it's a fair bet they pay better than the ufc.

    He didn't start MMA until his mid-30s. He's another one of those "what if he started 10 years earlier?" fighters. He actually helped train Frank Shamrock in striking before the Shamrock-Tito fight (around 1998 or so) and had a wrestling background, along with San Shou.

    I for one was SHOCKED when a guy in his 40s who looked like this stopped competing at pretty much the exact same time as the UFC Anti-Doping Program was launched. Surely just a coincidence.

    You must not have read about what went on with his "failed" test. He got screwed and retired shortly after.

    But he never said anything about prime Frank Shamrock. He said prime Cung Le.
