MMA Quick Quote: Asians are not scared of Anderson Silva

"I'm not sure if you watched the last couple UFC's. I cornered one guy and he (Dana White) stuck me right next to BJ's mom. He's talked to me on the down-low because I do have a two year, four or five fight contract left with Strikeforce. My promoter is willing to be like, hey Gracie went into the UFC and fought Matt Hughes. We're willing to do that too, but is Dana willing to do that? When I first sat down with Dana, he was like, I want you to fight. I want you to sign a six fight deal. I was like, I can't do that, I have four fights left with Strikeforce and now it's down to three. We're at the three mark so let's see where it goes. But of course, like you said, Anderson Silva is pound for pound ranked number one, but what I see is all four of his losses were to Asians. Those Asians are not scared of him. They will come in and they will engage to fight. Everyone in the UFC who is fighting him is fighting scared. I mean, I'm gonna go in there and I'm either gonna win or I'm gonna lose. It's how am I gonna win or how am I gonna lose, because when I walk out of there I want to be able to carry my head high. I have nothing to lose. Anderson Silva is favored to win. I got nothing to lose.

-- Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le fields a question about a possible superfight with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. It's no secret that UFC President Dana White doesn't like to cross-promote with other organizations, but everybody wants to see if there is a 185 pound man in the world who can contend with "The Spider." Some think Cung Le is that man, but is it ever going to happen? I say probably not. What say you?
