With Randy Couture recently quelling previous rumors of fourth bout with "The Iceman," the next appearance for former UFC light-heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell (21-6 MMA, 16-5 UFC) is still an uncertainty.

But at Saturday night's post-UFC 92 press conference, UFC President Dana White hinted that the fan-favorite could possibly headline the recently announced UFC 96 on March 7 in Columbus, Ohio.

Did you see the look on Chuck's face when Rampage KO'd Silva???????????

I bet we could see a Rampage/Liddell rematch again. The look on his face said " Damn, I might have to fight this bastard again!"

The fight wouldn't happen but if the fight would be pointless for Rampage then wasn't the fight for Wandy pointless. I can't stand how everyone puts down Chuck Rampage three but everyone couldn't wait for Rmapage Wandy three. Rampage just won Chuck just lost that fight won't happen.

you got a point. Rampage lost 2ice before beating Silva. chuck lost 2wice as well......Fight could be there considering their current rankings. I say if they both win their next fights then they will fight each other for a title shot...... If they both win their next fight. ge

Thiago Silva Vs. Rampage
Cain Vs. Liddell

You know it would be nice if they anounced some fights for that card it is the closest to me and I'm thinking about going. Tickets went on sale the 27th with no card in place.

Interesting. The only match I could think of would be a Liddell/Jardine rematch.

I do not believe W. Silva would fight by then, nor would a guy like Shogun when having to fight Coleman (unless Shogun makes quick work with Mark).

I would not be surprised if Liddell gets pushed back a month/ month and a half and fight Forrest Griffin at possibly UFC 97. The only trouble I see with that would be if the UFC would really want Chuck to fight on the UFC 100 card (if they are trying to make it a special card) and I would not think he would have enough time to prepare. Thus making UFC 96 a logical choice for Liddell.

But if it is Liddell, and it is in March at UFC 96, I would have to assume it would be a re-match against Jardine.
