Go out with a bang.
Rich is a badass, no doubt. But I would much rather see Liddell vs. A. Silva.
This is a Win/Win for the UFC.
If Chuck loses to Silva, the p4p best gets more hype, and Chuck goes out against the top guy in the sport; nothing to be ashamed of.
If Chuck wins, the UFC gets their poster boy back into title contention, without feeding him cans. A. Silva returns to the MW scene and continues to destroy the competition.
Aside from the benefits for business, this would be a great match-up stylistically. Two stand-up fighters with KO power toe to toe.
Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones is the best match-up the UFC has ever been able to arrange. Here's to hoping it goes down.
