Chuck Liddell vs Wanderlei Silva is back on? (again?)

How many times am I going to get sucked into this shit? Word on the street is that Chuck Liddell vs Wanderlei Silva is gonna happen on UFC’s December 29th card. The source isn’t too shabby either: Chuck’s trainer John Hackleman. Of course, we’ve all been through the ups and downs of this fight way too much, and I’m hesitant to believe anything short of an official announcement on UFC.com.

My bet at this point is Dana White is trying to set this fight up on a budget … since Chuck lost, this won’t be a headlining fight and therefore retardo headline bonuses and PPV percentages may not apply. Of course, it’s still not gonna be cheap. If Shogun Rua was getting 150k just to show up, I have to wonder what kind of numbers Wanderlei is getting. 250k/250k doesn’t seem that unlikely.

Right now we just have to sit tight and keep our fingers crossed. I’m sure there’ll be more leaks regarding this fight than there were in Evan Tanner’s boat.

    poor evan. he should have brought little dutch boys to stick their fingers in the holes.

    there’s about a thousand things wrong with that sentence.

    lol, little dutch boys. dont get ryan too excited.

    chuck vs wandy will happen. id sort of be surprised if it happened so soon as this could possibly be chucks 3rd loss in a row or another pride fighter losing. i know wandy fought in ufc before but his legend grew over there. but at the same time does dana want to match chuck up vs another loser he wont be motivated to fight?

    i think the fans deserve this fight asap after these next two bore fests of ppvs

    If Rashad/Bisping can be a main event, Chuck/Wandy sure as hell can.

    I’ll still pay to see it, then again I’d pay to see Don Frye fight Godzilla.

  • marshal

    I’d pay to see Chuck Liddell and Tank Abbott in a last man standing alcohol binge!

  • Khzarn

    Tank would take that easily, unless Chuck gets to enhance his performance with blow.

    “I’ll still pay to see it, then again I’d pay to see Don Frye fight Godzilla.”

    LOL, did you intentionally use Godzilla knowing Gabe “eating machine” Reudiger used that as stage name? Nevertheless, if it was unintentional comedy – even funnier! I was laughing my ass off just thinking about Don Frye pummeling that little cry baby.. YEAH, I’d friggin pay to see that too!!!

    this fight better happen for free on spike tv

  • fletcher

    i think chuck has the fire back in him he’ll knock out silva

  • Frank

    Wanderlei is going to put a mean spanking on chuck. If a B fighter like Jardine can beat Chuck Lidell…..wanderlei is going to rip his head off.
