    Pretty straight forward, who would you like to see him fight next?

    I'd like to see a fight with Sakara

    Make him fight a grappler so that uneducated fans can appreciate his solid defensive wrestling owing to his wrestling background from childhood and extensive training experience with AKA wrestlers like Cain, Cormier, King Mo, Koscheck and Fitch

    Agreed, he should fight someone like Jake Shields next.

    Especially seeing as how they're both former SF MW champs lol.

    I like that.

    But I think they'll give Le a bigger name, at 40 years old, being a popular fighter...you know.

    edit : Shields? Dunno, yeah Le has a great TDD but eventually Shields would be able to take him down when Le would gas....and you know what happens when Shields take someone down....NOTHING. lol. Besides...Shields said he was going back to WW for some reason.

    I could go either way. At 40 it'll probably be a pretty decent name who's not really a contender but will put on a exciting match up anyway. But with 2 wins in a row, the last one being a high profile KO I wouldn't be shocked if it's a young, legit contender or up and comer who may be looking for a high profile win for the highlight reel.

    Jake Shields or Vitor if he wins.

    Him and Jake were the last two SF MW champs and they never got to fight because Cung vacated the belt.

    Belcher would be fireworks, but he's coming off that loss to Okami.

    I'd say Philippou would be a great fight.

    I like the Costa matchup. Or Boestch, even though he's coming off of a loss.
