UFC president Dana White said Wednesday that Chuck Liddell (Pictures) would not fight Wanderlei Silva (Pictures) Sept. 22 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Moreover, White told Yahoo!'s Kevin Iole the fight between former UFC and PRIDE 205-pound champions would now likely never happen


GAY!

Although this would be great fight, it maybe would be better off next year. Wand has already stated he wants the rest of 2007 off to recover and spend time with his family. Chuck has been KO'd in devestating fashion by Rampage (as was Wand by CC and Hendo). Let them both have a warm up fight Jan / Feb 2008 and then fight May / June.

Dana would do well to check Chuck away from Wanderlei. The last thing he needs is Chuck getting another kicking!

On Silva's site it said that he was going to fight Chuck, so I have no idea what happened? Maybe somebody jumped the gun on his site and thought he agreed to it, because he told chute box he did not want to fight.

I completely agree with Trollking. But you have to ask yourself, Who's Ego is getting the better of them.I think both fighters need to let go of some personal on their payroll, pull their dicks out of their ass's and fight already!!!

The longer Silva waits, the less people will care. Liddell is aging quickly and I don't think he will be able to put up much of a fight for very much longer.

I agree it fells like this fight is maybe 1 1/2 to 2 years too late. They both seem to be a step slower then before.

I think uncle Fester is just protecting his posterboy chuck now and doesnt want him to lose two in a row so he can get another title shot again.

Exactly. Silva has 3 different interviews that are recent talking about fighting Chuck as soon as possible and that he's going to walk through him because the guy can't stand with Rampage. For Dana to call out Silva like that and embarass him for "Chuck's relationship" is another bad business move, the hits keep on coming.

To be honest most american "FANS", who are not on sherdog and ufcjunkie and mma playground all day, don't really know much about wandy. so they are going to belive that chuck would beat him and wandy is backing out of the fight. I think 6 out of 10 time wandy would win, that is probley more wins for chuck than most would give him but you have to relize if Chuck hits you you will go to sleep and wandy has shown in his last two fights if you catch him, like everyone else, that bed time can come quicker than he would like. But styles make fights and wandy is bad for chuck.

also i dunno if you guys saw silva-hendo 2 but all the prefight interviews all silva talked about was beating chucks ass,so i dont think there is no way he backed out hes wanted this forever i mean come on he is the axe murdererhe isnt some poser he is for real as real as it gets anyway.
