According to Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports, Wanderlei Silva has turned down the offer to fight Chuck Liddell in a UFC fight later this year.
This is a complete contradiction of yesterday's UFCJunkie.com report, which claimed that Silva had agreed to terms for a bout with Liddell in September. Apparently that is wrong – and Dana White isn't happy.
The UFC president told Yahoo! Sports when he found out, “This is the worst news I could have possibly gotten.” He would continue, “It’s horrendous. I have been trying to make this fight for six years. I have done everything in my power I could do over the last six years to make this fight and it’s still not happening. I just don’t see it happening now.”
“This just happened (Wednesday afternoon) and I’m not sure what we’re going to do,” White said. “We’re trying to figure it out. It’s not a fun time right now.”
Well …that sucks. Again.
