Would Dana White Deliver Chuck Liddell vs. Anderson Silva?

There has been a lot of talk about a superfight between UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva and former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell. Unfortunately none of the talk has come from the most important person in that equation, Dana White. It’s no secret that White and Liddell are friends and that Liddell may be past his prime at this point of his career.

With that said though, White has always promoted the fact that he puts on fights that fans would want to see. One fight that this fan would want to see is Anderson Silva vs. Chuck Liddell, that is if both fighters are willing to do it though.

From the sounds of things, it doesn’t look like that fight is going to happen anytime soon if at all.

Take a look at Silva’s response when asked about the rumored fight, “Thanks for the information, but I didn’t know about that. Everything is possible, but [there’s] nothing set yet. Let’s wait and see what’ll happen.”

Yahoo! Sports has been in touch with Dana White on many occasions and had this to say about White’s feelings regarding the possible fight:
UFC president Dana White has been lukewarm on it so far.

The current rumor pits Silva against Liddell in the main event at UFC 95, it’s only a rumor though because Dana White has yet to have his say about it.
