Kevin Iole de Yahoo sports entrevisto a Dana White y publica que no se llevara a cabo la pelea entre Wanderlei Silva y Chuck Liddell. Parece que Silva es quien no quiere pelear, aun no ha dado ninguna razon.

“This is the worst news I could have possibly gotten,” White said. “It’s horrendous. I have been trying to make this fight for six years. I have done everything in my power I could do over the last six years to make this fight and it’s still not happening. I just don’t see it happening now.”

Por su parte Chuck Liddell comento para MMAWeekly:

“To my knowledge, he turned it down, but I don’t pay attention much until they tell me it’s time to go. There is never any problem with me signing to fight.”

Esta pelea se suponia seria la estelar para el UFC 76 en Anaheim, aunque se haya cancelado habra buenas peleas para este evento. Esta confirmado que Mauricio Shogun debutara en UFC vs Ryoto “Lyoto” Machida, asi como la pelea entre Jon Fitch y Diego Sanchez.

Parece que UFC todavia no llega a un arreglo para pasar por PPV el UFC 75: Champion vs Champion, lo que esta haciendo pensar a mucha gente que se podria transmitir por Spike TV, igual que el pasado UFC 70: Nations Collide.

 Ya hay varias peleas confirmadas para UFC 74:

UFC 74: Respect
25.08.2007
Mandalay Bay Events Center
Las Vegas, Nevada.

Randy Couture vs Gabriel “Napao” Gonzaga

Georges St. Pierre vs Josh Koscheck

Renato Sobral vs David Heath

Joe Stevenson vs Kurt Pellegrino

Travis Lutter vs Ryan Jensen

Marcus Aurelio vs Clay Guida

Patrick Coté vs Kendall Grove

Con la inminente revancha entre Ortiz y Evans creo que UFC debe reevaluar si Tito Ortiz realmente vale los US$210,000 que cobro en UFC 73. Aqui los salarios de este evento:

Tito Ortiz $210,000
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira $200,000
Anderson Silva $90,000
Heath Herring $70,000
Stephan Bonnar $32,000
Sean Sherk $28,000
Nathan Marquardt $24,000
Chris Lytle $20,000
Rashad Evans $16,000
Kenny Florian $16,000
Hermes Franca $14,000
Jorge Gurgel $14,000
Frankie Edgar $10,000
Mike Nickels $5,000
