Cung Le might finally return to fighting to take on former UFC fighter Scott “Hands of Steel” Smith at Strikeforce: Evolution on December 19th in San Jose, CA.

FanHouse confirmed Le has verbally agreed to the fight. Scott Smith at Friday’s Strikeforce Challengers denied any knowledge of the fight, but agreed that would be a great fight for him.

Le (5-0) a San Jose native won the Strikeforce middleweight belt by defeating Frank Shamrock at Strikeforce: Shamrock vs Le. After acting obligations forced le to not defend his title in over a year, he agreed to vacate the Strikeforce belt. Jason Mayhem Miller and Jake Shields will be competing tonight for that vacated belt.

Smith (16-6) is coming off a submission loss to Nick Diez earlier this year at Strikeforce: Lawler vs Shields.
