Some more details on whether or not Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva may or may not finally fight in December…
MMA Weekly spoke to Liddell trainer John Hackleman yesterday and Hackleman said that he won’t believe anything is official until he sees some signatures on paper:
“I’ll believe it when I see the signatures,” he said of the proposed fight that has been on-again, off-again for the past several years.
I think everyone would tend to agree with Hackleman.
However Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer is reporting a different kind of news. Kind of like Liddell and Silva verbally agreeing to fight:
Chuck Liddell vs. Wanderlei Silva is now verbally agreed upon by both sides to take place on 12/29 in Las Vegas
Meltzer is a very reliable guy when it comes to rumors like this but we’ll see what happens. The timing between Meltzer finding out of the news and Hackleman’s comments to MMA Weekly could be farther apart than we think. I’m not going to say that Hackleman isn’t permitted to talk about the matchup because we all know that he loves to speak his mind.
