The UFC has already booked its ticket for London.

According to Fighters Only magazine, UFC 95 is set for Feb. 21, 2009 at the O2 Arena. While no fights have been scheduled yet, rumors have already started circulating that Anderson Silva and Chuck Liddell are on the list of possible fighters.

Liddell was scheduled to take on Rashad Evans in the promotion's last London event -- UFC 85 -- but the "Iceman" had to back out after sustaining an injury.

According to BloodyElbow, Silva, who defeated Patrick Cote by TKO last Saturday, was eyeing a return to the Octagon by as soon as December.

But aside from Silva and Liddell, it is certainly expected that a slew of British fighters will make their way onto UFC 95 -- namely Paul Taylor and Dan Hardy -- since UFC 89 successfully boasted six hometown favorites.
