A hat tip goes out to UFCDaily.com for pointing out that DirecTV is currently advertising on its website that the long awaited dream match between Wanderlei Silva vs. Chuck Liddell is scheduled to take place at UFC 79 on Dec. 29.
You can check out the graphic that appears below by clicking here and going to the DirecTV website.
Should DirecTV’s decision to advertise the match be taken as anything close to official? Not a chance. Promotions routinely send out advertising materials to affiliated vendors on a regular basis only to see some of the matches never publicly announced. It’s also possible that DirecTV acted on its own and created the above graphic.
However, it’s sure is intriguing to see Liddell and Silva advertised by one of the UFC’s biggest PPV distributors.
