PostSubject: Chuck Liddell vs. Keith Jardine Expected to Headline UFC 76   Sat 14 Jul 2007, 6:59 pm



Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell (20-4 MMA, 14-3 UFC) and Keith Jardine (12-3-1 MMA, 4-2 UFC) are expected to headline Anaheim’s UFC 76 event in September.

Jardine will take the spot vacated by PRIDE standout Wanderlei Silva. Earlier this week, UFC president Dana White said that Silva turned down the UFC 76 fight with Liddell despite having a verbal agreement in place. UFCjunkie.com first broke the news of that agreement, but for reasons still unknown, Silva apparently opted not to take the fight.

Instead, Liddell will face Jardine, a cast member from The Ultimate Fighter 2 who worked his way into title contention before suffering a shocking, 48-second upset to UFC newcomer Houston Alexander back in May. Prior to that UFC 71 loss, Jardine had posted a 4-1 record in the UFC — with his only loss coming via a controversial unanimous decision to Stephan Bonnar at UFC Fight Night 4.

The loss to Alexander erased all the momentum the 31-year-old had gained after his dominating first-round TKO victory over Forrest Griffin at UFC 66. It was the biggest win of Jardine’s career. But the Team Jackson fighter now has an opportunity for an even bigger one.

Liddell, who had held the UFC’s light heavyweight title since April 2005, suffered a first-round technical knockout to Quinton Jackson at UFC 71. The May 26 loss was the 37-year-old’s first defeat in eight fights.
The future UFC Hall of Famer’s upcoming fight with Jardine will be his seventh consecutive main-event fight.

The fight with Jardine — “Plan B,” if you will — may be a letdown for many hardcore MMA fans. After all, the proposed Liddell-Silva bout had been one of the most-anticipated fights in the sport’s history. The UFC, and specifically White, had tried to arrange the matchup for years but experienced one snafu after another. During a UFC 61 event in July 2006, White event went as far as announcing the fight was going to happen — only to later blame the then-owners of PRIDE for keeping it from happening.

I knew liddell was a pussy,

If you give a man a choice of when he wants to fight don't get pissed when he doesn't pick the date you want.

Beating Jardine wont get liddell any fucking place, all he has to do is fucking wait two months and silva will beat liddell's ass.

I think it is a bit of a balk on both sides Wandy came out after the fight was announced and said he didn’t want the fight! Then he clarified saying he wanted the fight in November! Now Chuck is already signed to fight Jardine and they need a big name for that PPV! So the will wait a little longer!

No offense to jardine but nobody is going to want to pay to see him fight liddell. It's a waste of a Main Event.

Yeah they dont want to give him forest just yet! But i agree Liddell is to old to be taking filler fights! he needs to go ahead and fight the top guys with what little time he has left! i mean he is 37 years old!

They better have another big fight along with this one. They have too many big name fighters not to.

I think you might be right. They announce so many fights in advance, it's tough to keep them straight. Chuck should be fighting Shogun if not Silva. Nothing like protecting their man Chuck.
