MMA Quick Quote: Frank Shamrock had Cung Le 'totally on the stand up'

"I had him totally on the stand up. He was never going to make it another round or so. I was slowing him down, I was catching his timing, and I was starting to catch his chin. One of us never would have made it out of the fourth round and I don't think it was going to be me if my arm didn't break."

-- Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Frank Shamrock tells that he was a round or two away from stopping Cung Le during their title clash on March 29 at the HP Pavillion in San Jose, Calif. Shamrock did not answer the bell for the fourth round because of a serious forearm fracture sustained during the fight, which did not go the the mat once in 15 minutes of back-and-forth action. It was later revealed that Shamrock had lost all three rounds on the judges scorecards. He needs several months to recover from his injury and when he does he wants to first fight his adopted brother, Ken, before avenging the loss to Le.
