Nice. If I still lived in Rock Hill or Charlotte I'd definitely be going. Can you imagine the traffic though? Get there as early as possible man!

Opponents: Rashad, Sokoudjou, Thiago Silva, Wilson G, machida?

Im thinking no Shogun because i heard he wasnt going to be able to fight till december. Then maybe shogun could fight sokoudjou.

I understand all but two of those opponents. Sokoudjou and Wilson don't make sense.

I heard rumors of Anderson Silva...but dont believe them yet.(but it would be cool)

I think he gets a rematch with Jarine..

although Machida or Thiago are the most deserving....or I could see Sokoudjou if he is ready...maybe

I think he'd KO Thiago.....Machida could make for a boring fight (too much dancing) a rematch with Jardine could happen, but I don't think Jardine will be cleared by then will he?

Wandy rematch is my first choice

I have to disagree man, Liddell is patient he wouldnt chase Machida around like everyone else does. Machida strikes and runs, it actually bores the hell out of me personally. Liddell is a counter puncher, Machida would dance, Liddell would wait and when the two exchanged Liddell would knock his damn lights out, the only thing Machida has to his advantage is youth, his kicks are better but Liddell's hands carry alot more power than machida's. As far as Thiago goes, he is a great fighter but he is not at Liddells calibre just yet, he wouldnt take him down and Liddell would still have the adavantage standing up but thats just my opinon (obviously I am biased) I think Liddell/ Machida goes to a UD or late stoppage for Liddell and Liddell/Silva ends in an early KO for Liddell.

I have t o agree though Wandy/Liddell 2 would be an awesome matchup, I hope it happens soon.

I hope it's a Jardine rematch the most. That loss will be eating away at Chuck and i think he will want to avenge it as soon as possible.

I agree. Best fight would be W. Silva who just redemed himself, vs Liddell again who's comeing off a wim against W. Silva

Silva vs Liddell 2.

Huge ratings!
