UFC Quick Quote: Wanderlei Silva all about a 'win' against Chuck Liddell at UFC 79

Liddell Silva UFC 79

"I need to win this fight, it's a very important fight to me and for this I wake up in the morning every day with this fight in my mind. It's a great motivator for me because this time I'm training very, very hard for to give my best condition for this fight.... This is my first fight here, for this I'm training a lot because this is a very, very important fight to me. I need to win and I'm going to win because I'm training four times per day for four months for this fight and Chuck's going to see my conditioning now."

-- Former Pride FC champion Wanderlei Silva talks about his preparation and mindset with heading into his monster clash with Chuck Liddell at UFC 79: "Nemesis" on December 29 -- that's eight days away! UFC just sent around an email reminder to that effect, calling it a "Battle Years in the Making." Considering its significance, has the UFC done a good job promoting this fight in particular and blockbuster pay-per-view (PPV) event in general? Or, is it falling short? Seems like there was much more of a buzz around other 2007 events such as UFC 68, UFC 71 and UFC 74.
