MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC Fight Night 48 middleweight Cung Le as he prepares for his upcoming main event bout against Michael Bisping this Saturday (August 16, 2014) at the Cotai Arena in Macau, China.
The former Strikeforce champion has done his best to ignore Bisping’s infamous trash talk and has instead been focusing entirely on training while healthy for the first time in a long time:
“[Bisping’s] trash talk hasn’t gotten under my skin at all. I’m just gonna let him talk and while he’s talking, I’m training. Scott Sheely’s my main trainer and I brought in Dave Camarillo. I’ve got more different bigger guys from a good kickboxer to a good wrestler just to someone who scraps. We call it ‘shark bait rounds’ and it’s a fresh guy each round. I hate that the most. It seems like when I drop someone with a body kick or a leg kick, Scott’s like, ‘New guy in.’ He’ll put me on my back or up against the wall. It’s been rough.”
