Cung and Carano by the end of the year

Oh that Scott Coker. He’s so positive. I listened to all his interviews before and after the event, and he’s become even better at saying nothing than he was before. But one solid declaration he was willing to make was about who would be returning before year’s end.

“Cung is going to fight in Strikeforce,” Coker told ( “Cung wants to fight in November because it’s his home town. I’d like to see Cung fight in our December show.”

‘November’ is UFC 139 in San Jose, the event Cung Le publically said he wanted to fight on right around the time he said ““I know for a fact that if I do fight again, it’s going to be in the UFC.” But who knows. Saturday’s Strikeforce broadcast featured a very happy Cung Le rubbing Scott Coker like a lucky Buddha, so maybe they worked out some kind of good fortune / fighting arrangement.

The next one I’m slightly less confident about …

“Gina Carano should be back by the end of 2011.”

We’ve heard this one before. I’ll believe the Cung Le one because Cung is Scott’s pal and they’ve always made shit happen in the end. As opposed to with Gina, where promises are like the wind. The wind! Scott is the boy who cried “Gina Carano is coming back!” And whether she didn’t because he was full of shit or she was full of shit, the result has always been the same: no Gina.

On the plus side, it sounds like Strikeforce will probably be around until the end of the year!

    Always?  Ha-ha! Yer starting to sound like a jilted stalker, man.  I love the dame/hate her absence too, but she fought till she got smashed and then did a movie.  Then she pulled out of one fight.  Is there something I’m forgetting here?

    And cung has to fight either Silva or Bisping.  Leben’s also ‘in the mix.’

  • Symbul says:

    Scott Coker wasn’t a person you should listen to too intently back when he actually ran Strikeforce, nevermind now when he’s barely even a spokesman.

    I can believe Cung Le wants to fight. They even have some opponents for him at MW. Gina, though… I don’t think so. She’d need a tune-up fight and even that seems to be asking too much now that she’s had her face pulped in by Cyborg once and started getting a feel for that movie money.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    does anyone really even give a shit that these two ever fight again?

  • CAP says:

    ^not really. But I wouldn’t mind another Gina weigh in pic. Nude of course cuz she’ll come in heavy.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    i want cung le vs gina carano
