Frank Shamrock Avoids Cung Le

Or at least he backed out of a fight with Cung Le, depending on how you wish to look at it:

Earlier today spoke with Strikeforce Middleweight Cung Le and he confirmed that he will be fighting on the November 16th Strikeforce card at the HP Pavillion in San Jose, CA. Who his opponent will be has yet to be determined but Cung made mention of the fact that Frank Shamrock backed out of a possible match-up. Both fighters made mention of it during the Strikeforce at the Playboy Mansion show so it can be assumed it will most likely happen down the line. Cung also stated that there have been about a dozen names thrown at him but it hasnt been narrowed down yet. The show is still well over a month away so it should be announced who his opponent will be over the next few weeks.

I can't be mean to Shamrock. I wrote him off for his inconsistent fight schedule and declining ability due to age. Then I paid for it. Cung Le's a stiff test, but I seriously doubt he can hang with Frank in any sort of ground battle. Hopefully we'll get to see.
