Anderson Silva Vs. Chuck Liddell Possible For UFC 95 In London

The UK based newspaper, The Sun is reporting that the UFC will be making their return to the O2 Arena in London England on February 21st following the success of UFC 85 in June.

The paper is also reporting that UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva has been asked to appear on the card with a possible match up with Chuck Liddell on tap.

This would mark the second time in a year the Middleweight King has moved up in weight to find opponents as the UFC has been having a hard time finding opponents to challenge for the titie at middleweight. Silva has rolled through everyone put in front of him.

In June, Silva moved up to 205lbs to face James Irvin during a special UFC Fight Night on Spike TV and would win that contest with a vicious KO of the “Sandman” in under two minutes of the first round.

Nothing is official at this time but there have been rumors of a possible Silva and Liddell superfight for quite some time and with talks of Silva possibly retiring at the end of his UFC deal, and with the 38 year old Liddell somewhat on his way off the top of the ladder at Light Heavyweight by losing three of his last four fight, now would be as good a time as any to set up the superfight many have been clamouring for.
