Dream match to become reality
After many years of negotiations, the long awaited superfight of Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell vs. Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva might finally have a date.
Having just signed with UFC last week, Silva verified the plans in an exclusive comment to CBS Sports.com during the pay-per-view.
“I want to fight Chuck Liddell. I expect that fight to happen on Dec. 29. I believe that is the fight that will take place,” Silva said.
