I think Dana is just trying to keep us focused on UFC 62 for the mean time then Chuck .vs. Silva. I guess hes hearing how no one is interested in Chuck TKO ing Babalu in the first round or Forrest Griffin owning Bonnar in 2 minutes as the co-main event .

Babalu is the harder challenge for Lidell without a doubt, I believe that a Silva v Lidell fight would only happen if neither of them were the flagship fighters at their wieght for the respective companys, i believe neither company want the risk of their man being beaten as both make money on matchups provided and if either are going to lose they want it to be a home fighter to win to propogate the revenue etc if you get my drift?

OK

Will everyone PLEASE STOP BLAMING DANA WHITE! Christ sakes does anyone here know Japanesse Business? I do enough to know that they are stingy as shit and they are only in it for 1 thing and thats money. If it doesn't happen im not going to blame dana white because dana white is only the ufc president, and he can only control chuck liddell's side of it. The japanesse control PRIDE, so if Silvia wants to stick with pride, then theres nothing dana white can do but try and get pride to fight against UFC.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

If Chuck beats Babalu and he can't fight Silva we all can watch Ortiz win the light heavyweight championship again .

yea I have to agree.. just because dana is the president of the company and hte public face.. he does not make all the decisions.. thats what the board of directors does.. While he has some say his word is not law... and he can not control events in Pride which may be the reason for this.. all we can do is sit and wait.. and see what happens

Of course this assumes, that Wandie has rights to choose his next opponents. Pride has the biggest upside here gentlemen. UFC has spent its bullets, we know all their fighters and we've seen what happens when too much is at stake like 61 Bitter Rivals--presenting lackluster fights. If Chuck v Tito 2 is what's for sale next....there may be a problem. Pride has quite a bit to present.

Chuck TKOing Babalu, maybe. Griffin taking out Bonnar in two minutes, not going to happen. Bonnar out struck him in the first match and if he was in better condition he could have dominated him. I am not saying Bonnar won, but the fight was pretty much even. And Forrest hasn't knocked anyone out in the UFC and he never looks for submissions. The guy, though likable, is not a world class fighter like most people on this forum think. He is average in the UFC and wouldn't even make it in PRide.
