Cung Le Calls The UFC “Something He Doesn’t Believe In Anymore”

After over a month removed from the resolution of Cung Le’s drug-test dispute with the UFC, he still isn’t happy with the UFC. Le said on Wednesday that he told his manager, Gary Ibarra, to request his release from his UFC contract.

Le stated that he no longer has it in him to work for Zuffa in the wake of a drug test which was first announced as a failure for human growth hormone, then was rescinded. Heres what he had to say:

“I’d just prefer not to be part of the UFC anymore, I’d prefer not to put the effort into something I don’t believe in anymore. The consensus prior to this situation was that Cung was that he was an honorable man, A family man, a true embodiment of what martial arts is: Respect, honor, he embodied all of those things. And now hii career will ever be tarnished, or forever have something of an asterisk next to it, due to something that is no fault of his own. Does anybody deserve that? No, absolutely not. I would hope the UFC would understand that and recuse themselves from further drug testing when there are no athletic commissions, and leave drug testing in the hands of people who specialize in drug testing so that this doesn’t happen again. If I would fight for anyone, it would be Scott Coker, I would not fight for the UFC after what happened.”
