"That's not playing as big in my mind [a third consecutive loss] as a win would put me back in contention for a title.... I'm approaching it as a fight that I need to go out and win like all my fights. I can't wait to get out there. I try and leave the future out of everything. We could talk about it, but when I'm preparing for a fight, that's not part of me preparing for it."

-- Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell (via is optimistic that he will not lose his third consecutive fight when he returns to action against Wanderlei Silva at UFC 79: "Nemesis" on December 29 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. "The Axe Murderer" is also riding a two-fight losing streak. The stakes are high.
