Cung Le Discusses His UFC on FUEL TV 6 Victory Over Rich Franklin
– Cung Le spoke about his victory over Rich Franklin after the UFC on FUEL TV 6 event completed. Here are the highlights…
Cung Le on how he feels about his victory: “I’ve got to say wow! It’s like a dream. I feel like I’m in a dream right now. Thank you, lord. You know, I just saw him timing my kicks, so I waited for him to punch and then threw that overhead right and I got lucky and hit him.”
Le on the knockout punch: “That was a money punch. I just want to thank my trainer Scott, who had three months away from his family and kids and had to deal with my stuff and my kids, because they are wild. I am just so thankful to be here in China in the first UFC fight. Thanks Dana and Lorenzo for letting me headline their card and, of course, Joe Silva for making this card happen. I want to thank everyone who came out.”
Le on his next move: “I love to do mixed martial arts. I love to compete. If I can do it as long as I live, I‘ll do it. But I know my clock is ticking, so I am just doing my best. I definitely want to take a little vacation before I start training to let my body heal up. You know when I hit him, I felt my shoulder jolt a little, but it was just a lot of adrenaline going.”
