Wanderlei Silva is back with Xtreme Couture and wants to face Chuck Liddell in a rematch on NYE 2009. The following is provided courtesy of Xtreme Couture
Wanderlei is studying under Randy twice a week in the mornings. In addition to that he will be joining our Pro Team for practice. Wanderlei tells us that when he went to rope a dope Chuck in the first round of their fight he realized he couldn’t bounce of the cage and counter Chuck the way he could coming off the ropes in the PRIDE ring.
Randy says that he and Wanderlei will continue working up until Wand’s next fight. We’re not sure if we’re allowed to say who he is fighting next. But we’re told it will happen in May and it is someone who has fought Chuck. He and the rest of the UFC’s 205lb division had best be on notice. There will be a new and improved Wanderlei next time he steps in the cage. Wanderlei tells us he’d like to rack up a couple of wins and rematch Chuck on New Year’s.
