The following is from GracieFighter.com:

UFC looks to Lindland

Inside sources have informed us that the UFC has contacted Matt Lindland to face their new Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva. Lindland's takedown skills and ability to take out top strikers have the UFC intereseted in a matchup between him and the Brazilian standup ace. After defeating Jeremy Horn and noly losing a razor thin decision to Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Matt has become the hot commodity at 185lbs. There are 2 factors impeding the scheduling of this match. Number 1 is that Matt still has a fight left in his WFA contract. The second issue is money. So far the UFC's offers have been considered less than generous compared to what the WFA and IFC have offered him. For Matt to fight in the UFC he will have to completely relinquish fighting in other organizations and he would like to be compensated accordingly.

There will be meetings between Matt and the UFC in the upcoming days to see if these issues can be resolved and if a Anderson Silva vs. Matt Lindland fight can become a reality.

i just think dana realizes that there isnt a middleweight in the ufc that can beat silva right now, and its gonna take a great grappler to do it, and i think lindland is tailor made to beat a guy like silva

That could potentially be a great fight...but i'm not getting my hopes up. If it were to happen though, Mike Swick would be PISSED!!!

I think this whole thing of trying to recruit an english speaking fighter is another UFC marketing ploy. Anybody who comes in to fight the current champ should have to go up agains current contenders in that weight class or at least give Swick the first shot and then try to get some depth into the class.

Does the UFC really need an english speaking champ that badly? Would you stop watching UFC because the champ doesn't push Xyience and Tap Out gear?

While it can be seen as a sketchy underhanded business method; what Dana is doing is still good for fans. Lindland gets a shot at the title and Silva gets a hard battle that could make him a bigger fan favorite...there's no downside except for other organizations that lose lindland.

My only insight is that Lindland should go with the Tito Ortiz method of negotiating. He should demand a large sum of cash AND a grappling match with Dana White. Dana is just not professional enough in this sport and while I'm sure he does not have ill intentions; he's disrespectful to almost all but the Miltetich champs. I hope Silva and GSP's contracts run out after the next two fights and then they demand decent pay from Dana.
