- Cung Le recently spoke about recovering from multiple elbow surgeries and more. Here are the highlights…
On Recovering From Multiple Elbow Surgeries: "I'm able to do cardio," Le said. "I'm able to hit pads. I'm not able to grapple as much right now, but I drill a lot. My body's fresh. I'm finally recovered from my three elbow surgeries in four months. I'm finally feeling good. I'm able to lift weights the way I used to."
Could He Fight Right Now?: "I told Dana, ‘If there's a one-round fight, I'm ready. I'll give you an amazing five minutes,'" Le joked. "I'll throw jumping kicks for the first few minutes. Then when I get tired, I'll start throwing wheel kicks. Then the last two minutes, I'll start throwing sidekicks. "I could do that right now. If you want that, lets do it!"
On His Next Fight: "I'd love to get a three-rounder in instead of jumping right into a five-rounder," Le said. "We'll see what happens. I'd love to fight on the next card in Macau or maybe the Philippines."
On His UFC Contract: "My heart is always going to be in fighting, but I know I can't wait too much longer," Le said. "I know the clock is ticking for me. I have three fights left on my contract. I would love to fight the three I have left on my contract and then retire as a UFC fighter."
