Former long time light heavyweight champion, Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell has 100% ruled out a February fight with Anderson Silva, saying no one has spoken to him recently and the same was said about the proposed June fight with former heavyweight champion Randy Couture.

I actually wasn't to interested in seeing either of these fights. I think there are plenty of matchups for all three of these fighters that make more sense than just putting big names togther to get big pay-per-view buys.

Yeah I agree I dont think they were good fights they were more just money maker fights.

All 3 of those guys have better matchups out there for them.

I don't understand why everyone's got to be so tight about it. It's a fun matchup and Randy will likely win. So either we get another positive chapter in the Couture story or he gets KTFO. Either way it's a fun matchup and it's big for both men. They both need to prove themselves worthy of the top level and there should be action.

Why should every fight be about rankings when the HW division sucks anyway.

I want to see it.

too many great matchups for both guys to do a chuck/randy #4 and most casual fans would think it is terribly redundant because they never saw the time when randy actually won.

I would rather see both guys win then see either lose, chuck cannot afford another loss.

Just like Dana always said there are no cans in the UFC, it is a lie, but not if you compare it to the cans in every other promotion I guess

Silva against Sonnen



No way is Sonnen deserving of a shot at Silva.
