UFC 139 Results: 5 Fights That Cung Le Could Take Next

1 of 6

    Cung Le may be down after his loss to Wanderlei Silva, but he's not out.

    The UFC almost always makes room for talented fighters with a flair for exciting techniques. Le will likely be no exception, since his array of kicks is one of the most exciting in MMA history.

    So what fighters could Le face after his loss to Silva? Read and find out!

Francis Carmont

2 of 6

    Francis Carmont isn't a name fighter so the UFC might not put Le against him, but it would be an interesting fight since Carmont is a very hot prospect at middleweight...and an exciting one at that.

    The fight would determine just how good both fighters are.

Winner of Jared Hamman vs. Constantinos Philippou

3 of 6

    While both Jared Hamman and Constantinos Philippou are good fighters, the winner would still be in need of a big-name opponent to have a win over—they'd need a true test.

    Cung Le could provide them with this test.

Brian Stann

4 of 6

    A fight between Brian Stann and Cung Le would certainly be a memorable affair; it would have "fight of the night" written all over it, since both men are aggressive strikers.

Chris Leben

5 of 6

    Like with Brian Stann, a Cung Le-Chris Leben fight makes sense because both men are coming off a loss and both are two of the most entertaining fighters in the middleweight division.

    Who wouldn't want to see this fight?

Loser of Michael Bisping vs. Jason "Mayhem" Miller

6 of 6

    Seeing Cung Le fight Michael Bisping or Jason Miller would be very intriguing since against Bisping it'd be a striking clinic, and against Miller it'd be the classic "striker vs. grappler" matchup.

    It would also be quite a high-profile fight, since both Miller and Bisping have great name recognition.
