While it’s far from official, rumors of a match between Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva at UFC 79 on Dec. 29 won’t die. In fact, Liddell’s long-time trainer John Hackleman has thrown additional fuel on the fire with comments made during a recent interview with FightHype.com:
Percy Crawford: Ohio. I know you’re getting ready to head in the gym. Thanks for your time.
John Hackleman: No problem. If you want to set something up with Chuck, let me know because it looks like they’re going to do the Wanderlei fight in December.

The more I think about it, the more I believe we’re going to see it because how many other options do they have at light heavyweight for UFC 79? Liddell vs. Dan Henderson is about the only other option I can think of.
