Cung Le to Face Belfort at UFC 139

Posted by Mark Figula on September 10, 2011 at 1:25 PM

Former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion, Cung Le has reportedly signed with the UFC and will be facing Vitor Belfort at UFC 139 in October. In all likelihood this bout will be the main event, replacing the Velasquez - Dos Santos fight which was moved to the November 12th card.

Belfort, who is 2 - 1 since coming back to the UFC for the third time is coming off a first round KO of Yoshihiro Akiyama.

Le, who vacated his Strikeforce belt to work in film, will be back in the cage for the first time since his KO of Scott Smith in June of 2010.

Le is a very popular figure among MMA fans and if he can recapture his form, could prove to add some excitement to a division which has become a tad bit lackluster after being mopped up by its champion, Anderson Silva.
