I sure hope that Cung Le knows how to say "Do you want to be a ****ing fighter?" in Mandarine and Cantonese.

In some of the more interesting news coming out of the UFC 165 fight week, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White told media that Cung Le would serve in his role for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter: China.

White has been the overseer and at times, the motivator, for fighters on the long running reality television show. He's helped convince fighters to remain on the show, while at other times has had to lay down the law and kick athletes off out of the house.

According to White, Le has been at the Zuffa Headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada, learning about all things Ultimate Fighter.

"(Cung Le) is going to be the ‘me' in China. He's there to remind everyone why they're there and what's going on. He was in the office two days ago and I walked him through everything with The Ultimate Fighter and he's ready to go."

There is currently no word from the UFC as to when the show will air.
