At the UFC 71 pre-fight press conference, Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White touched on several topics – from the Chuck Liddell vs. Quinton Jackson main event on Saturday night to the possibility of Shogun Rua and Wanderlei Silva coming to the UFC to the turmoil surrounding the Fertittas’ purchase of Pride.

About Liddell and Rampage, White said that while Liddell relishes the opportunity to finally avenge the only loss on his record that has gone unresolved, Jackson’s wrestling ability and knockout power makes for an intriguing fight.

As for Shogun and Wanderlei, White wouldn’t exactly tip his hand, but did say, “Whoever wins this fight, somebody has already challenged them and we’ll announce that on Saturday night.”

Though reports surfaced on Sherdog.com that the purchase of Pride by the Fertittas has been finalized, White was somewhat vague in his response to questions about the purchase only saying “we’re still trying to figure out how we’re doing this whole thing,” but also stating that fans will still get to see the top guys fight each other.
