Cung Le: The Ali Act would bring fairness to MMA — VIDEO

Retired mixed martial artist Cung Le, an advocate for the Muhammad Ali Expansion Act and a fighters union, believes MMA fighters are entitled to more than promotions currently offer them.

Cung Le, a former Strikeforce and UFC middleweight competitor, has been working to bring The Ali Act to MMA and openly supports the Mixed Martial Arts Fighters Association. He is also involved in a class-action antitrust lawsuit against Zuffa, LLC., along with a handful of other former fighters.

Le, 44, retired from MMA following a dispute he had with the UFC over a botched drug test. Initially, the promotion suspended Le following UFC Fight Night 48 stating that he had tested positive for elevated levels of human growth hormone (HGH). However, the methods used to collect Le’s sample and the lab not being a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) approved facility called the result into question. His suspension was rescinded based on the “lack of conclusive laboratory results” as stated on UFC.com.

Also known for his acting, Le has a recurring role on AMC’s Into the Badlands and is set to appear in Security in 2017, a motion picture starring Antonio Banderas.
