    Dana says Liddell/Silva unlikely to happen

    August 11th, 2006
    By Zach ArnoldZach Arnold

    CP (Canadian Press) reports that UFC is now postponing plans for a fight in November between Chuck Liddell and Vanderlei Silva. This news comes one month after Dana White announced on PPV (in Las Vegas) that Silva would fight Liddell.
    He cited problems in dealing with the Japan-based Pride Fighting Championships that is home to Silva.

    So, once again, PRIDE continues to talk big in the Japanese press (like a pro-wrestling promotion would do over there) and Dana White kills those imaginations with a dose of reality, similar to how K-1 matchmaker Sadaharu Tanigawa claimed that UFC 60 did 800,000 buys — only for Mr. White to call that claim the dumbest thing he had ever heard of.
    Without Liddell vs. Silva happening, any talk of a mutually cooperative “interpromotional war” between PRIDE & UFC seems false, as UFC isn’t acting as a willing partner. Furthermore, Mr. White looks immensely idiotic for once again promoting the competition (PRIDE) on national PPV and then not getting the fight signed, sealed, and delivered.






    if it happens at all...:sad2:

    dana white needs to have some sort of internet phenomena started after him to ridicule his ass. Perhaps a photochopping, or a tongue-in-cheek phrase thats not really tongue-in-cheek when you think about it.

    Horn again, that was the stupidest fight I ever watched in my life. Lets not take down or even try to take down a guy when im much better on the ground and my whole game is submissions, o yeah and im terrible on the feet.

    Vera to 205 and start working up Bisping and Griffin in the lower ranks of the 205 division. Then get some of the lower rank guys from Pride while they can. Lower rank guys from Pride could be contenders in the UFC.

    I say bring back Vitor, get Overeem, Rampage, and Dean Lister.

    Bas looked pretty sharp in his last fight...even though it wasn't against anyone good...but how do you guys think he would do against chuck or tito?

    We really didn't see him get remotely tested, so I'll wait to judge if he's "back" after he fights a real opponent. I enjoyed seeing him fight and win though.

    um, for one, not trying to stand toe to toe with chuck would be a good strategy

    that's what I mean. I don't think bisping needs a year to be ready. I think he can walk in right now and be pretty dominant.

    :wtc: this blows, I (along with everyone else I'm sure) was so pumped about this. I was planning on blowing off the Babalu fight and wait for Wandy, but now I guess I'll hit the bar and check out 62 just for my Chuck fix. Damn, my day is ruined.

    Ditto. I have money on Bisping holding a major belt in his career.

    August 17 from mmanews

    White had announced July 8 that the winner of the Aug. 26 light heavyweight title fight between Chuck Liddell and Babalu Sobral would meet Wanderlei Silva, a star in the Pride Fighting Championship. But White has had difficulty negotiating a deal with Pride and said Thursday a Silva fight would not occur.

    dana white is scared of pride coming to the US and giveing pride a perfect chance to cement itself in the US by letting wandy beat chuck would not do him well.
