Liddell said after he planned to continue fighting, with UFC president Dana White saying Brazilian Wanderlei Silva would be his likely next opponent.

Looks like Chuck is going to have a long road back to the title

I really hope that this fight happens, but what about Wandy taking the whole year off. I would like to see Chuck fight again before 2008.

Someone has to play the devil's advocate...

Now that they (esp. Wandy) are damaged goods?? The great debate of the last 5 years is finally going to happen? That ship has sailed for me.

Wandy was in back-to-back wars ending with hard KO. He's not going to be there mentally. Chuck to a lesser extent because is was a flash KO. But still.

Styles make fights. Jackson's downfall is knee's. Wandy's downfall is strikers who can throw straight punches to counter his wildness. If we use your logic, Chuck beat Vitor, while Vitor owned Wandy. So how can Wandy beat Chuck? Chuck beat Tito twice while Wandy lost to Tito.

Let's see, Jackson beat Arona but Wandy lost to him once. It's all about the style.

i don't agree what so ever...silva and belfort was almost 10 years ago...that shouldnt even be brought up.

i agree that straight punches cause silva problems, however silva has became a counter puncher, that's how he beat rampage the second time. whenever you make chuck come forward he's in trouble. chuck hasn't faced near as many strikers has silva has, and has had major problems with every single one.

i think silva is in way better shape then chuck, and is way better on the ground. when you take it all into account i don't see any way that chuck can beat silva, sure he could catch him with a straight right, but chuck has problems with looping hooks. watch the second fight against tito and the first against couture, chuck keeps his hands at his waist, unlike wanderlei, and ALWAYS gets caught by hooks. if he thought rampage hit hard, wait til he eats a hook from silva. silva by ko.

Chuck/Wandy will probably end up happening in either October (on supposably the same card as Henderson/Rampage). Not exactly a year, but it'll be (in my opinion) enough time for Wanderlei to rest and get ready for Liddell.

wandy could have beaten chuck back in 03 and wandy can beat chuck now. dont think liddell can handle the chute boxe. i give silva props for always stepping up and fighting bigger guys something that liddell talkes about but has never done i dont believe.
