This would have been an amazing fight! Cung is 1 year older than Pele. Cung fought mostly at 185 lbs. Pele fought somewhere around 171 lbs? (correct me if I'm wrong) Pele fought Chuck LIddell (albeit it was only like Chuck's 2nd or 3rd pro fight) down in Brazil in Vale Tudo rules, and it went to decision after 30 mins. With Pele knocking Chuck down at one point with a head kick. Ima say that again, he knocked a young Chuck down with a head kick. Pele is usually considered the prototype to Anderson Silva. He had terrific striking and great takedowns. Pele holds wins over Matt Hughes, Pat Miletich and Cyborg Santos, among others. Cung Le used to only fight San Shou rules. He was a kicking highlight reel in human form, with outstanding takedown ability to boot. He didn't enter mma until later in his career. But still managed to make a name for himself in the sport despite the late start. Cung holds wins over Frank Shamrock (where he broke Frank's arm from a kick Frank actually blocked), Rich Franklin and Patrick Cote. These guys are basically the same age, and they were fighting in their primes at the same time. But they never crossed paths. And DAMN it would have been AMAZING if they had!!!!! These were 2 walking, talking human HL reels of violence. Would've been a phenomenal fight. vs Who do you think wins that?
