MMA Quick Quote: Cung Le still chooses movies over MMA for now

Strikeforce World Champ Cung Le

"Right now I'm just going to focus on the movies because I got like three other movies lined up. I'm a martial artist first, so I come up through MMA, and I'm very grateful. I know where my roots are, but because of MMA I'm able to do this, so I got to take advantage of it. We'll see me back in action sometime soon or sometime down the line."

-- Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Cung Le talks with MMArated.com about potentially sitting out all of 2009 to focus on his movie career. He already has two movies set to be released in the near future, including the big screen version of the popular video game "Tekken" in which Le will play the role of Marshall Law. With three more movies waiting to be shot it could be a while before Strikeforce puts on another middleweight title fight. It's already been nearly nearly eight months since he captured the title from Frank Shamrock in his hometown of San Jose. And another year away from competition would surely hurt the momentum the 36-year-old has built up to this point in his career.
