Dana White: UFC 100, Chuck Liddell vs Anderson Silva and Mirko Cro Cop

dana-white-conference

UFC President Dana White talks about rumors of Anderson Silva facing Chuck Liddell at UFC 100:

“If Chuck can win in his next fight, then we could see that fight. Liddell has been open to fighting Anderson, so maybe that can be a fight we can make,”

White welcomes talks about the possibility of Mirko Cro Cop returning to the UFC in 2009:

“We will welcome him with open arms. He is a guy that I respect, and when he left, there was really no bad blood,”
“He needed to clear some things up, so if he wants to come back, he is welcome.”

  1. last few comments have been insightful …

    surprising noone countered claims that lyoto is boring. as to a.silva fighting for the lhw title, it won't happen. he knows the title belongs to lyoto. If u don't like it, better start getting used to the idea.. as for the ufc 100 card, should be:

    Evans – Machida

    GSP – Alves

    Penn – Florian

    Cro Cop – Arlovski

    Nog – Gonzaga

    Wandy – Franklin

    Cote – Maia

    Fitch – Koscheck

    Davis – Kampmann

    Sanchez – Huerta

  2. jeez dont put chuck to anderson silva. chuck is 2 old and is on the worst point in his career. lost his last 3 of 4. and i don't think that chuck beat waderlei by that much. i think he can beat jardine and maybe him facing forest griffin would be a good fight. as for anderson silva, i would have 2 say either gsp or evans. the 2 of the best in welterweight and light heavyweight. so if anderson takes on gsp then i think rampage should fight evans. if silva fights evans then i think that thiago alves would be the next best thing for gsp. otherwise nog and couture should definatley b on this card 2.

  3. I think The Spider would dominate GSP, my opinion…. but I'd love to see Rashad N Rampage tho, that would be one of the best fights ever….I like Erik's idea…..AA n Cro-Cop would be a sight to see….I would have to take AA tho

  4. I hope that lyoto dosnt get the title… he is such a boring fighter.

    I would like to see a forrest/liddle vs, silva fight

  5. i thought he put the boring thing to rest

  6. RatAttack68 says:

    I also would like to see GSP vs anderson, that would be a great fight but I also belive anderson would win. Evans and Rampage or Rampage and Shogun. Arloski vs Lesner would be great. BJ vs Kenny and Matt Hughs vs Matt Serra maybe Forrest vs Jardine 2. Nog vs Gonzaga.

  7. they should let carwin go for the title, I think he has proven himself by beating gonzaga, or let him go up against nog

  8. Liddell Schmidell says:

    Seriously…liddell and a silva would be a terrible fight. They are nowhere near well matched. The best fight for silva at this point if there could be a weight change would be lyoto machida. They are both elusive yet very powerful. Because were seeing lyoto fight in may, i doubt well see him in july. and i love sugar rashad…but watch out for the dragon. as for the rest of the card im with erik up there…except for cro cop and arlovski…neither of those dudes are in the UFC right now. oh yeah and koscheck would get killed by jon fitch.

  9. you cant let silva ammediatly go to the top contender in the LH… you should let him go up against somone that is good bu not the best, unless you forgot that hes only had one fight in that wieght class.

  10. Lyoto Machida is my favourite fighter to watch! You guys are nuts! He is a smart fighter, counters, always dangerous. His fight against Franklin was great, but I think so were all his UFC fights. When you fight someone for three rounds, hardly get a scratch and bloody or bruise your opponent up that is impressive. He is a great fighter, I love his style! He may appear like a slow and lazy fighter at first but look at his technique and accuracy, he is very composed and very skilled!

  11. caleb williamson says:

    what does everybody think about the biggest rematch ever, Royce Gracie vs. Ken Shamrock to put on one last show.

  12. caleb williamson says:

    also another huge fight could be Lyota Machida vs Anderson Silva

  13. caleb williamson says:

    my complete fight card is

    Anderson Silva vs. Lyoto Machida

    GSP vs. Rich Franlkin

    Wanderlai Silva vs. Rampage 3

    Ken Shamrock vs Royce Gracie 3

    Brock Lesnar vs Cheick Congo

    Anthony Johnson vs Rashad Evans

    Chuck Liddel vs. Keith Jardine 2

    Thiago Alves vs. Thiago Silva

  14. the moose says:

    Re: gracie v shamrock

    Yeah, and how about Skeletor vs. Rosanne Barr?

    Roy is the old timer expert… Ask him.

  15. my complete fight card is

    Anderson Silva vs. Lyoto Machida(would be sick but won't ever happen there friends)

    GSP vs. Rich Franlkin-i could think of some better ones for gsp-rich is big and at lhw now.

    Wanderlai Silva vs. Rampage 3 already happened

    Ken Shamrock vs Royce Gracie 3 kinda cool i don't now if the fight would be though.

    Brock Lesnar vs Cheick Congo- naw theres some better match ups for lesnar than a striker.

    Anthony Johnson vs Rashad Evans?evans lhw johnson ww

    Chuck Liddel vs. Keith Jardine 2 -should happen buit not that interested

    Thiago Alves vs. Thiago Silva again alves ww t silva lhw

  16. caleb williamson says:

    friends has nothing to do with it, it all about the money in this business and im sure if lyoto machida had a chance to fight Anderson Silva he would, i mean they train together so better than machida to fight him.

  17. Caleb if u knew what you were talking about like Roy said they arent going to fight. They are good friends. Some people just dont want to fight their friends. I personally dont want to fight any of my friends either. And its not like the UFC is gonna offer them both 1 or 2 million dollars to fight eachother so it like roy said will never happen.

  18. caleb i would love nothing more than to see those two go at it, but anderson won't even go after the lhw belt because he likes machida so much and says its belongs to him, i don't even think money would do it unless like steve said they offered them some amount that they won't.

  19. caleb williamson says:

    well i would fight a friend if the money is high enough because they know that at the end of the day we will still be friends but its business, but i understand, but it would be a hell of a fight.

  20. The Moose says:

    For all the guys out there like Roy, who love to watch the old men, your day has come. Affliction III is rumored to air the same night as UFC 100!

    Hmmm, what to watch? Fedor knock out one of the three other fighters in Affliction? Or a kickass card of truly competitve fighters?

    Tough decision.

    Come Roy, fight back!

  21. theres nothing to fight about, man where do you get your info this is old news its not happening and your trying to come at me on some old thread from jan? come join us on some current topics you way behind.

  22. 100 will not be silva… It is no confirmed that Anderson Silva will fight Forrest Griffin in UFC 101… It will be an amazing must see fight. Forrest will be silva toughest fight, EVER.

  23. I meant now confirmed not no.
