Wanderlei Silva wants to rematch Chuck Liddell on New Year's Eve 2008

The Return of Wanderlei



"... Wanderlei will continue working up until Wand's next fight. We're not sure if we're allowed to say who he is fighting next. But we're told it will happen in May and it is someone who has fought Chuck. He and the rest of the UFC's 205lb division had best be on notice. There will be a new and improved Wanderlei next time he steps in the cage. Wanderlei tells us he'd like to rack up a couple of wins and rematch Chuck on New Year's."

The thinking behind a move to middleweight appears to have been short-lived and "The Axe Murderer" will look to snap a three-fight losing streak when he returns to the Octagon at UFC 84 on May 24. Keith Jardine is more than likely still the opponent ... what a transparent hint. His end goal, however, is another showdown with the "Iceman" before 2008 expires.
