Video: 'The Man with the Iron Fists' trailer featuring UFC 148's Cung Le

They put the F-U in Kung Fu.

On Saturday night (July 7, 2012), former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Cung Le will attempt to defeat Patrick Cote on the main card of the UFC 148: "Silva vs. Sonnen 2" pay-per-view (PPV) event from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Soon after that, the San Shou striker will return to the silver screen as "Bronze Lion" in the martial arts flick "Man with the Iron Fists," written by Eli Roth (The Bear Jew) and directed by RZA.

Yes, that guy from the Wu-Tang Clan.

The good news is, they've managed to wrangle a pretty decent cast, including Russell Crowe as "Jackknife," the criminally underrated Rick Yune as "Zen Li," and the luscious Lucy Liu as "Madame Blossom," not to be confused with Outback's "Awesome Blossom."

I can dig it.

Former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Champion Dave Bautista has a prominent role as "Brass Body" and considering his previous exploits, there's bound to be an antiferromagnetism joke in there somewhere.

Anyway, take a look at the trailer and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
