In the latest installment of Frank Shamrock blogs, we want to discuss the upcoming match between Frank Shamrock and Cung Le. First of all, on the topic of the fight. Cung Le is a stand up fighter, with little ground knowledge, easy to sub and mostly likes to stand up and fight. On the other hand, Frank Shamrock is a submission fighter, who’s main interest is in ground fighting. This begs the question, who will take the cake? Our guess is that Cung Lee will probably KO washed out Frank Shamrock. Let’s face it, in 8 years (from 2000-2008) Frank Shamrock only had 5 fights, and only 3 fights since 2004. The guy hasn’t really been around the block lately in terms of high end MMA competition. Conversely, Cung Le fought 5 times since 2006 and knocked out each opponent with a KO. Cung Le is the better fighter, unless it goes to the ground – where he’ll get destroyed by Frank Shamrock.

On the topic of steroids, it’s widely believed Cung Le is tied into indirectly a Bay Area steroid crowd that pulls back to the same gym Barry Bonds was in, basically making Cung Le is good steroid use target. Then, we have Frank Shamrock who’s steroid use we talked about already – with his likely use of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) as the top topic. In terms of testing, it doesn’t seem either of these guys is stupid enough to test positive for anabolic steroids, so it’s unlikely any fight decision will get overturned.
