Cung Le is riding a two-fight win streak that includes a knockout of former UFC champion Rich Franklin.
However, Le will not be hitting anything for a while after undergoing surgery to remove several bone spurs from his elbow.
I just got these bones spurs taking out of my elbow this morning! I don’t know how long I’ll be out. Update coming soon twitter.com/CungLe185/stat…

Le (9-2) improved to 2-1 inside the Octagon when he dropped Franklin in China recently. The 40-year-old splits his time training with filming movies. He has stated his desire to continue fighting despite reaching an age where most retire from the sport.
