According to comments recently made by UFC president Dana White, the on-again, off-again bout between Wanderlei Silva and Chuck Liddell is, well, on again. Assuming, of course, Liddell gets by Keith Jardine at UFC 71.
White was quoted over the weekend by a Las Vegas TV station, where he revealed "We’ve got Wanderlei Silva.”
Dana was also quoted earlier in the week as saying this about Chuck Liddell, when asked about Chuck's possible rematch/title shot:
"Chuck would have to win one more fight. I think Chuck has to win two fights in a row and then, yeah, he’s back in the mix again. He got knocked out in a minute 30 in the first round (in his last fight). No matter how great he is, I’d like to see him win a couple of fights and then come back and fight for the title again."
Looks like this fight may finally happen, guys. Dana seems as if though he's through babysitting Chuck Liddell. I wonder what excuse Chuck is gonna have when he's staring across the ring at Wanderlei Silva?
