Cung Le Down For Wanderlei Silva Rematch – With An Added Stipulation

Cung Le was unable to hold off Wanderlei Silva when the two met, as “The Axe Murderer” broke Le’s nose and earned a TKO victory.

Since that time, both fighters have picked up wins, and Le believes a rematch would make for interesting television – coupling it with The Ultimate Fighter.

“If that fight does come up and it includes a coaching spot, I’m all over it,” said Le, during a recent Q&A session. “I grew up watching Wanderlei. I was just honored to be in the Octagon with him.”

Le added that, despite the loss on his resume to Silva, he feels it was avenged by his knockout of Rich Franklin.

“I knocked out Rich, who’s beaten Wanderlei twice, so it’s almost a reward in itself.”

These two may be past their primes, and even competing in different divisions, but if they were paired up together for an international season of TUF, I doubt many hardcore fans would be upset about it.
