Cung Le Wants To Fight In The UFC Again In 2012

Former Strikeforce middleweight champ Cung Le lost to Wanderlei Silva at UFC 139, but he doesn't intend to go out like that. Le, who was just awarded a $5,000 Twitter bonus from the UFC tweeted yesterday to his 21,000 followers:

"@T_Webb_31: Cung Le any chance we see you back in the @ufc :) a thank you to your fans perhaps" that's my plans this year!

The 39-year-old Le has been mostly focused on acting in Hollywood productions for the last few years but it looks like he intends to get a few more UFC fights in before Father Time forces him to call it a career. Le was undefeated in a decade-long combat sports career before getting KTFO'd by Scott Smith in 2009. He beat Smith soundly in their 2010 rematch then moved to the UFC and got KO'd by Silva.

Le made a reported $350,000 for his UFC debut and presumably will be earning a comparable amount for a second bout with the promotion.
