Video: UFC 148 'fighter diary' featuring Cung Le and giant spiders

What's Cung Le doing to prepare for Patrick Cote at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 148 pay-per-view (PPV) event this Saturday night (July 7, 2012) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada? Oh, not much, just chasing people around his house with giant spiders.

Must be a San Jose thing.

Le made the move over from Strikeforce last November in a 185-pound war against legendary "Axe Murderer" Wanderlei Silva at UFC 139. He opened with a strong first round, but eventually succumbed to the Brazilian's relentless pressure, falling by way of technical knockout.

He even had a nasty broken nose to show for it.

The part-time movie star is now healthy and raring to get back inside the Octagon and the promotion has granted him his wish. The match-up is preferable, too, considering the penchant for slinging leather (from both men).

Who's going to sleep in "Sin City?"
