"I just sent a text message to Scott Coker today cause I keep hearing about this tournament. I sent him a text message today and I said we want in that tournament. There will be a third Cung Le fight. Cung owes it to us. We didn’t have to take this last fight. There was nothing for Scott to gain, nothing. It was only a (losing situation). The fans will want to see it again because for one thing, neither fight was boring."
Mike Roberts, manager for Strikeforce middleweight Scott Smith, expects "Hands of Steel" to appear in both the rumored 185-pound tournament in October as well as a third fight with rival Cung Le. While one loss apiece normally warrants a third dance, Smith was getting handled in their first encounter before pulling off his patented miracle comeback. Do two lopsided fights with one hail mary warrant a deciding bout? Or did Le do enough in the second fight to negate a third?
