Vitor Belfort vs. Cung Le at UFC 139 in San Jose, California on November 12th

Possibly two of the best strikers in MMA, former UFC champion, Vitor Belfort and former Strikeforce champion, Cung Le will meet UFC 139 in San Jose, California on November 12th, 2011. The bout was revealed by Belfort himself via his website and later by his Twitter.

Belfort got back on track with a first round knock out win over Japanese superstar, Yoshihiro Akiyama just a few weeks ago. Prior to that he’d failed to take home the 185 pound title when he was front-kicked in the face by Anderson Silva in February.

Le avenged the only loss of his MMA career to Scott Smith, a fight he was winning until the end of the fight, when he dominated the American back in June of last year. He hasn’t been seen since as he continues to forge a movie career for himself both in the Far East and Hollywood.
