Cung Le is coming off a nice victory over Patrick Cote at UFC 148, but one where he hurt his foot on Cote’s head.
Le, now 40, is opting for some old school, Eastern type medicine to speed up the process of healing. It’s called blood letting.
Blood letting goes back thousands of years, and even as recent as few hundred years in the West. First president George Washington was said to have requested blood letting — up to a whopping four pounds — due to a throat infection that eventually killed him.
Le shot some video of the procedure.
