Yesterday UFC President Dana White was interviewed on ESPN News talking about the results from UFC 71 as well as the company and sports future. In the interview it is confirmed that the UFC deal for Pride is finally official after nearly a month delay. It was quite obvious when Dan Henderson was revealed as the light heavyweight challenger although vocal confirmation is always reassuring.
White also discusses a potential Liddell-Jackson 3 fight stating that Liddell would have to win several fights before he would be given another shot at Jackson. So much for an immediate rematch. Up next for Chuck is PRIDE veteran Wanderlei Silva.
