Seriously, people. Dana White’s halfhearted attempts to convince everyone Chuck Liddell vs Wanderlei Silva is one of the biggest fights in MMA history would seem more sincere if the company spent a couple fucking dollars producing a show hyping the fight.
Yeah, I know the UFC’s got their standard countdown show, but honestly … for a supposed megafight, this bout sure doesn’t have any hype behind it so far. Some might say no one really cares what happens between these two. I say bullshit to that. The UFC’s job is to make people care about this fight, and so far they’ve done a shite job of doing it.
Considering the history and the legacy of these two fighters, there’s no reason the UFC shouldn’t be doing a 24/7 type show that builds up towards UFC 79. And I seem to remember Chuck Liddell being a rather popular fighter. Ya know, before he lost to Keith Jardine. Now he’s just a LOSER. A big fucking LOSER. And who wants to even hear about losers, let alone watch a show or pay for an event featuring two losers duking it out???
