According to Anderson Silva's Manager:

Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, today told ( the Feb. 21 date in London was too soon for Silva’s next bout.

"With our timing and our scheduling, it just makes more sense to come back [in April]," Soares said.

"As of right now, nothing has been 100 percent decided yet," Soares said. "It looks like we’re looking to fight in April. We don’t know what can happen, but as of right now, I think we’re going to be fighting in April."

So I suppose the rumors of Chuck Liddell vs. Anderson Silva at UFC 95 were just that...rumors. There are current rumors about Thales Leites fighting Silva for the MW title, but I've heard that fight doesn't interest Silva. According to Soares, Silva only wants the BIG fights and I suppose all of them right now would take place at LHW. I would think the UFC could fight somebody in the LHW division to fight Anderson Silva. I mean I proposed that he fight Randy Couture months ago, and folk thought I was crazy I suppose. Chuck Liddell, Keith Jardine, and Brandon Vera don't have any fights lined up at the moment. I know one thing, they need to decide on what they are going to do with Silva. Maybe they should just have him relinquish the MW title and move up to LHW full time? What do you think?
