Continuing our previous Wanderlei Silva post, I decided to post the best fights from Silvia and host them on my server. First up is Wanderlei Silva vs Chuck Liddell, a brutal bloody fight with lots of action. Here is the video:
The fight was originally announced by UFC president Dana White at UFC 61 on the 8 of July, 2006. The fight was only to be held if Silva managed to beat Renato Sobral at UFC 62, which he did. At this time however, the fight did not happen due to unknown reasons. At PRIDE 32, Silva issued a challenge to Liddell to fight him in the PRIDE ring, however this fight also did not happen due to clearance problems resulting from Silva’s previous loss against Mirko Filipovic.
Silvia signed to get back in the UFC octagon on the 17th August, 2007, with his return match being against Chuck Liddell. The fight was (finally) held on the 29th December, 2007.
At the conclusion of the fight, Silvia is reported to have stated “Win or lose I like to give the emotion for my fans”.
If for some reason the Wanderlei Silva vs Chuck Liddell goes down, don’t hesitate to contact me about it
