Cung Le: We'll see if Wanderlei Silva can deal with my kicks at UFC 139 (Video)

"The movies are not on my mind right now. My fight is on my mind, especially being in the UFC in San Jose. I'm very excited, so everything is focused on this fight. My crosshairs are on Wanderlei Silva. We'll see if Wanderlei can deal with my kicks, if he can catch my kicks with all the camouflage I'll be throwing in front of my kicks."

Former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Cung Le (via Uber Knee) will take on Wanderlei Silva in the co-main event of the UFC 139: "Henderson vs. Shogun" pay-per-view on Nov. 19 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. 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 -- until the UFC came calling. Will the San Shou striker have a starring role in his Octagon debut? Or will "The Axe Murderer" leave him on the cutting room floor?
