More Lindland Rumors

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 barely 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.

God I wish Dana would come off his wallet and get some of the great fighters!

I'd love to see Rampage Jackson and Wandei Silva in the UFC. They're exciting in and out of the ring.

I bet Dana will sign him unless Lindland's camp ask for something outrageous. I think Dana has been paying in peanuts to be ready for moments like this. I bet he is signed.

If Dana lets this opportunity slip away it will have been the cheapest, most stupid thing I've ever heard of. I think he will make sure he gets Matt though I bet he really wants someone to beat Silva and he knows no one in the UFC has a chance.

Slamnbam88 is an unknown quantity at this pointSlamnbam88 is an unknown quantity at this pointSlamnbam88 is an unknown quantity at this point
i dont thikn hes as big of a name as a wandi/rampage ...not as 'mainstream'...but would no doubt be an amazing addition


i think once dana makes a killing on this next PPV (ive chosen not to get some of the last ones because of weak cards and i think alot of other people have too) he'll see what the fans want...good fights with good fighters

the UFC becoming more mainstream is allowing people to understand mma alot more...they realise that going in their as an amature boxer will get you nothing but beat-up.

top of my wishlist is still shogun/crocop/jackson/randleman ...fedor would **** up to many people to easily
