Ruthless aggression vs. calculated precision.
Wanderlei Silva vs. Cung Le is locked and loaded for the upcoming co-main event of the UFC 139: "Henderson vs. Shogun" pay-per-view on Saturday night (Nov. 19, 2011) at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
The defeat dropped Silva (33-11-1) to 2-4 since his Octagon debut, a three round unanimous decision loss against Chuck Liddell back in late 2007.
It's without question the twilight of his career and as such, the odds makers have labeled him the +120 underdog for this weekend's middleweight mash-up.
Despite being a slight favorite at -140, the inactive Le (7-1) hasn't been seen and hardly heard from since avenging a knockout loss to Scott Smith back in June 2010. That win marked just his third fight in as many years and the road seemed clear for a full commitment to Hollywood.
In fact, the San Shou striker openly admitted he would only accept another mixed martial arts bout if it was to take place inside the Octagon. Well, he's got his wish, but it's against a wild Brazilian with nothing to lose.
Is Le in over his head?
