UFC 95 in London confirmed; could be headlined by Liddell vs. Silva

A report in the UK-based tabloid newspaper The Sun confirms that UFC 95 is scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 21 in London, England at the 02 Arena.

No matches have been made official, however, the paper reports that a superfight between former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell and current UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is being considered.

“SunSport understands Middleweight champion Anderson Silva, 33, has been asked to appear on the card, with a potential bout with light heavyweight star Chuck Liddell already being mooted,” the report reads.

“That potentially mouthwatering clash would see ‘The Spider’ step up to the 205 lbs. division to face 38-year-old Liddell – who is desperate to get back on the victory trail following his devastating loss to Rashad Evans at UFC 88.”

The paper goes on to add that an official announcement from the UFC could come within the next 24 hours. At that time it is expected that a lightweight bout between Terry Etim and Justin Buchholz will be revealed.
