Cung Le on Fighting Rich Franklin: "I Have Not Signed Yet"


When the UFC makes its debut in China, Cung Le (8-2) is ready to fight.

"I'd love to fight for the UFC in China for the first time," said Le. "I'm going to do everything in my power to get there and to be a hundred [percent] or close to a hundred. I feel if I go in there and just fight my heart out good things will happen."

Le last fought in July at UFC 148 in a unanimous decision victory against Patrick Côté (25-8).

Rich Franklin (29-6-1 NC) is penciled in to take on Le at UFC on Fuel TV 6 through a verbal agreement with Dana White, as Le is waiting for the clearance from his doctors for the fight.

"I have not signed yet," said Le. "I'm just waiting to be released and I've been bugging the crap out of my doctors to 'lets go release me.' They have to follow procedure, but I think I'm going to get it."

UFC on Fuel TV 6 takes place November 10.
