Cung Le is way too old to be getting his face smashed in like he had happen Saturday night by Wanderlei Silva in Le’s adopted home of San Jose, California. At 39, Le is on the last legs of a fighting career and his nose might not be able to take much more of a pounding than it was given by Silva at UFC 139. Says Le of his fight: “I fought my heart out and I Just want to say thank you for all the support.” Dude, it might be time to call it a career so you can still smell the roses.
The good news for Le’s nose? By being broken in such a fashion, it ended up being ‘co-fight of the night’ and received a cash bonus.
Wanderlei Silva proved that he still has fight in him as he rebounded to crush Strikeforce veteran Cung Le with a TKO that reminded many of his PRIDE days. The fight was named co-”fight of the night” and the money was well-earned as Silva gave Le’s nose a twist worse than an M. Night Shyamalan movie.
Le, yesterday, tweeted out a pic of his rearranged nose and all seems to be good now. Just a little black eye and broken nose pics that’ll now live on the Internet for years to come.
