Liddell-Silva off???

Liddell vs. SilvaThe dream match up between the best light heavyweight in PRIDE – Wanderlei Silva – and the baddest light heavyweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship – Chuck Liddell – appears to be just that:

A dream.

According to the Calgary Sun, the much-anticipated mixed martial arts bout between the rival champions scheduled for November might be no longer.

Here's a snip from UFC President Dana White:

"I don't even know if Silva's going to happen."

White cites problems in dealing with the Japan-based PRIDE.

If this mega fight doesn't go down, we very well may see the Liddell-Ortiz II rematch. Of course, Liddell beat up Tito Ortiz in UFC 47 back in 2004.

We'll keep you posted.
