LOL that's hilarious because yesterday I said why is Dana not even thinking about having Chuck fight Shogun, obviously he's scared, and that'd he probably match him up with Jardine (as a joke)...with Silva saying he'd fight Chuck in November, this shows how protected Chuck is as a fighter. For them to run a mock burial job of Silva on ufc.com and make themselves look this ridiculous only adds to Dana's ignorance. First the comments about internet mma fans, then the botched Canada job, now this. I hope the Fertitta's wake up.

Dana just want to give a chance for the UFC fighters to "rise" again... the Prides are coming, IMO he's so upset tha the 205 Unification title will be between 2 former Pride's and of course he don't want to give two consecutive loses to Chuck. Wand? Shogun? nah..... Jardine..... so he can win.

COWARD!!!!


Dana and Chuck should get married.

The Pride boys are coming and they are winning...oops....Cro Cop got KOed. Herring lost in his firs fight in the UFC. Why oh why does just about every thread get truned into a Pride vs. UFC????

How was Chuck being protected?? He fought everybody they put in front of him. He went to Pride and fight 3 times. This is getting crazy

I don't like Dana too much, and I am not big fan of Chuck at all. However it seems like you base all of you conclusions on some rumors that somebody heard, and somebody else repeated. Fans on the internet want Chuck to fight Silva so bad that they hear only things they want to hear, and rumors spread to insane proportions.

Dana could care less about Chuck, all Dana wants to do is make some dough. Chuck losing two in a row is bad because it confuses an "average" fan. Chuck losing two fights in a row to people that average American UFC fan never heard of is really bad. Chuck vs. Silva is not going to sell tickets. Chuck vs. Keith Jardine (TUF) is going to sell alot of tickets. And that's the end of the story.

I doubt that Chuck is scared, and I doubt he has any say at all at who he wants to fight next. Wanderlei said they offered him a contract, and he wanted to delay for a month. UFC offered him a contract, he himself admitted to it. He couldn't fight in September, well too bad. At the end of the day UFC needs to sell tickets, and thats the end of the story. It is unfortunate that "Liddell vs. Jardine" fight is an appeal to all the average fight fans who don't know much about the game.

I am not trying to take sides here, however I do not think that Liddell is scared, or Dana is protecting somebody. If it meant making a couple extra million dollars and the Nevada Athletic Commission said yes, Dana would put Chuck against a bulldozer and watch him get mowed down.

OK i will explain, if he took liddell off that card it would only sell to the hardcore fans like us. If liddell wasnt on that card then the only name known to average fans would be diego sanchez and that is not enough for a pay per view.

He doesnt want chuck to fight shogun because he is protecting both of them. he wants to build shogun up to american fans and have one of them have a belt before they fight each other. DANA IS NOT PROTECTING CHUCK he is protecting his and everyone elses paycheck. if wandy was in chucks position ( being the biggest star in mma america) dana would be doing the same thing right now protecting wandy, it has nothing to do with friendship, its all bussiness

Well if Dana is gonna turn the UFC into his own personal soap opera full of personally picked fights instead of the obvious ones the fans want to see now then he can start putting them on free TV.....cuz nobodies gonna want to pay for this garbage
