    Liddell vs Silva. Champion vs Champion!(provided neither of them lose the title prior to this fight) The stake is so high for both men, I thought this would never happen. Dana is like a young Vince Mcmahon. This dude can make things happen. Now if only he could bring Lesnar into the UFC and set up a mega match with someone like Tim Sylvia, I'll be totally impressed.
    lol this has gotta be a troll.

    It's called publicity, of course Dana White will bring fighters from PRIDE inside the octagon for a stare down. It is an attempt to bring some credibility to UFC. I would seriously doubt PRIDE would pull out of this fight due to a few hundred thousand dollars, the fact is, if the fight happened Silva is a favorite to win the fihgt and the publicity that would bring to PRIDE would bring in MULTI MILLIONS not a mesely few hundred thousand so I assure you PRIDE is not bitching about a few hundred thou.

    This is the same thing UFC did with bringing Chuck to the PRIDE events. They would not bring a boring fighter like Sylvia (even if he wasn't a can) to represent the UFC in PRIDE as they wre trying to gain a fan base in Japan and Sylvia will not do that for you. An exciting fighter like Chuck would but after his dissmantling by Rampage the fans likely thought, well if he can't beat Rampage there is no way in hell he can beat Silva (my thoughts exactly).

    I would like to see the UFC continue their sucess and bring in more talent, I am a big fan of the UFC I just do not care for Dana White, he is a tool.

    With his constant dick-moves like his booting the WFA Principal out of UFC 61, his negative comments about the WFA and the IFL to try and tarnish their organization. Let your fighters do the talking not the loud mouth president, it's just gay.

    Actually he didn't make the dream fight happen. He presented it to us, and then pulled it away(blaming PRIDE of course) even after saying he had Silva signed. As for Lesnar fighting Tim Sylvia, it's not likely to happen in the UFC since Lesnar has signed with K-1 HEROS's, plus he'd probably have a tough time making the UFC HW weight limit.
