Scott Smith vs. Cung Le Rematch Targeted for June 26 Strikeforce in San Jose

A rematch between 185-pound slugger Scott Smith and former Strikeforce middleweight champ Cung Le is being targeted for Strikeforce’s June 26 event in San Jose, according to MMAFighting.

In December, Smith scored a come-from-behind third-round knockout to hand Le the first loss of his career as he returned to action for the first time in nearly two years.

Smith (17-6) has won 3 of his last 4, scoring back-to-back KO’s of Terry Martin and Benji Radach before losing to current welterweight champ Nick Diaz last June, while Le (6-1) won the title with a third-round TKO of Frank Shamrock in March 2008 in his previous bout.

The June 26 card is expected to be headlined by Fedor Emelianenko vs. Fabricio Werdum, but ongoing negotiations between Emelianenko and Strikeforce must finish before the matchup is made official.
