The often speculated bout between middleweight king Anderson Silva and former light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell could finally become a reality at UFC 95, which is set for February 21st from the O2 Arena in England, according to The Sun.
The article adds that English native Michael Bisping will for once not be part of the London event due to coaching duties for The Ultimate Fighter. However as expected, several Brits including Dan Hardy and Terry Etim are already booked to compete on the card.
While I would naturally be all shades of psyched to see Silva and Liddell do battle, I cannot help but feel that if and when Chuck falls to the canvas in defeat, it would indeed be the last time we see him inside the octagon. Though if he were to emerge victorious over the Spider it would certainly do miles toward placing his name back atop the light heavyweight ladder. Also, and I probably shouldn’t mention this for fear of a jinx, but since UFC 95 will be overseas, could Liddell vs. Silva even be gratis? Oh look now I’ve just gotten way ahead of myself.
