MMAjunkie.com is reporting that Cung Le (4-0) will be taking on former Ultimate Fighter 2 cast member, and former UFC welterweight fighter, Sam Morgan (18-8) on the Nov.16 Strikeforce card.
This will fight will add to an historical card that will also feature the first 4-man tournament sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission and Paul Buentello vs. Alistair Overeem for the Strikeforce Heavyweight title.
After failing to sign Jeremy Jackson to fight Le, Strikeforce put together the fight with Morgan, who is coming back from over a year lay off after losing a lopsided unanimous decision to Forrest Petz at Ultimate Fight Night 6.
It is doubtful that Morgan will attempt to stand with Le and will probably attempt to utilize his submission game, which he can do.
But it is even more doubtful that many fans will see Morgan as a legitimate gauge of Le’s skills.
