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.
