Cung Le Talks Ultimate Fighter: China, Ronda Rousey Doing Films

Cung Le Talks Ultimate Fighter: China, Ronda Rousey Doing Films

Cung Le has been able to balance a successful MMA career with an equally successful movie one.

Le, a former Strikeforce champion, held a chat with fans recently where he discussed a number of subjects.

Coming off a knockout of Rich Franklin last year, Le was in talks to face Michael Bisping, he confirmed. However, “UFC asked me to go to China to do Ultimate Fighter China and be the mentor coach and the figurehead. I leave October 1st,” Le stated.

The 41-year-old has posted a 2-1 mark since joining the UFC in 2011, falling to Wanderlei Silva and defeating Patrick Cote.

Aside from his MMA run, Le has played key roles in such movies as “The Man with the Iron Fists,” “Dragon Eyes” and the soon-to-be-released “A Certain Justice.”

Le offered up some thoughts on Ronda Rousey, the UFC female bantamweight champion, who has signed on to appear in a pair of movies over the next year.

“My advice to Rousey is make sure your whole team is with you and be prepared for long hours. And as soon as you have down time, get your workout in,” he stated. “I’m sure the shoot is not going to be two months long, so she shouldn’t have too much to worry about – it is actually good to take a week off here and there from regular training to let your body bounce back.”
