Cung Le post-fight interview
Great victoy for Cung Le against Rich Franklin on Saturday, November 10.
“It’s like a dream, I feel like I’m in a dream right now,” Le said to Fuel TV after the amazing knockout victory.
“I just saw him timing my kicks, so I waited for him to punch, I threw that overhand right and got lucky and caught him”. Le says “lucky punch” but it was a well placed, devastating right hand with so much strenght that it left Franklin laying face down on the mat wondering what just happened.
At 40 years of age, Le has to decide about his future: “ I love to do martial arts, I love to compete, and if I can do it as long as I live I’d do it, but I know my clock is ticking, so I’m doing my best. I definitely want to take a little vacation before I start up training again, let my body heal up, my foot completely heal.”
