Cung Le took the beating of his life from Wanderlei Silva at UFC 139, and Silva mentioned earlier today that rearranging Le's face might have actually been good for Cung's movie career. Well, according to Mr. Le, the bruises on his face aren't the only painful thing he endured in the bout (from his facebook):
The back of my head hurts more than my face. The Ref needs to watch the strikes to the back of the head more...
He followed it up later with another comment:
After my fight I told Wandy that it was an honor to fight him. I have no excuse for my lost. My comment about the back of my head "hurts more than my face" is because I get hit in the face during training...so my face is more conditioned.
Le doesn't seem like the type for sour grapes, but I really don't remember any blatant shots to the back of the head in the bout. It certainly wasn't something that I've seen addressed by anyone since the bout (until now). Perhaps it's worth (another) re-watch.
