Cung Le made an appearance on MMAJunkie Radio today and revealed he will be appearing as a competitor on the next CBS Strikeforce card in late 2009 or early 2010.
According to the Strikeforce middleweight champ, he is still training consistently, regardless of acting in movies. A bit of interesting news is that he mantioned every time he hits the pads hard or put pressure on his elbow, it would take a few days until the pain would go away. Seems the elbow injury is about 80% healed.
When asked about the long layoff, Le talked with Scott Coker before making a movie in China and it was discussed that eventually a title defense would need to come or the belt may need to be vacated.
Most recently, Le dominated Frank Shamrock on March 29, 2008. He has not competed in MMA since the bout.
