"Vitor is very dangerous, but I’m very dangerous too." --- Cung Le
Former Strikeforce middleweight champion, Cung Le, signed with UFC late last week. In relation to this, the new member of the promotion is set to face Vitor Belfort in what appears to be the main event of UFC 139 on November. However, The Phenom doesn’t care to acknowledge Cung Le’s status. In a recent interview, UFC’s former middleweight contender made comments which suggest that he didn’t know who Cung Le was or what he had accomplished.
The latter addressed the issue:
“What Vitor says doesn’t bother me. He can talk all he wants. We’ll take care of business on November 19th. Let him talk. I don’t like to talk so he can do all the talking. I’ll let him have that job and we will work it out in San Jose. Vitor is very dangerous, but I’m very dangerous too. We have two dangerous guys in the ring and we are going to see which one of us is more dangerous.”
