He doesn't want to gas out...
Cung Le spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Michael Bisping at UFC Fight Night 48 next month. Check out the highlights:
On going the distance in his fight with Bisping: "This time around, I'm going to pace myself and try not to blow my wad in the first two rounds. I feel really good for this fight. Nothing promised, but I know I'm ready to go...I think the only threat … is his cardio. He's going to try to take me to the late rounds, but when you take me to the late rounds when I'm shape, you're going to have to endure all the damage that I'm going to bring that night."
On getting into fighting shape: "I'm not a spring chicken any more, so after my recovery, I got back on my rehab and strength and conditioning (and) got on my diet and personal training."
On fighting in China: "Being in Macau is very special."
On when he'll fight after this: "One fight at a time – we'll see. I pushed a few movie projects for this fight. It wasn't a leading role, but I want to compete and be the main event. I love superfights, and Michael is a superfight to me. I plan to bring the lightning followed by the thunder."
