One actor to another, Cung Le does not buy into the hype of Steven Seagal training mixed martial artist.

“You know, Sensei Seagal. I don’t think he’s done much for the sport, MMA. I think the fighters like Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture put in all the work. He came in and took all the credit. [Is he riding the coat tails?] I think so.”

Cung Le talks with MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani on his upcoming bout with Patrick Cote at UFC 148. Le admits that he’s disappointed that he’s no longer facing the former champ, Rich Franklin, and not surprised that his new opponent Cote is the favorite as he has more fights than him.
