UFC 134: Anderson Silva vs. Yushin Okami

I don't think Yushin can do it. I want him to win but just don't think it will happen. The good thing about this fight is due to Yushin's style Anderson will have to engage and will not go about doing his monkey in the circus antics. So I am predicting another Silva win. But minus the whole "Steven Seagal taught me this deadly move" bullshit. Who knows maybe Yushin can grind it out like Sonnen did minus getting caught in a sub. Pretty damn sure Okami wouldn't have been caught like Chael did. Anybody know what the betting odds are yet?

Also, I understand it is Uncle Dana's job to hype up his fights/fighters but does anybody really think Okami is really the best Japanese fighter ever? I would place Sakuraba as my number one any day of the week. Oh Dana, U so crazy.

I fully expect Okami to defeat Silva. Silva will lose sometime soon. The division is too stacked against him what with Sonnen and Mayhem.
When will we be able to bet? I plan on going all in for Okami to win.

I don't see it so much as Silva being so much better than Okami, but I don't see Okami being able to defeat Silva. Silva has remarkable striking power and skill, an unorthodox and talented ground game, and an uncanny fight awareness. He has proven himself against numerous high-level fighters in more than one weight class. And he still manages to surprise me every time I watch him fight.
Not to mention that is 2006 loss to Okami was due to a DQ from an illegal kick, after otherwise showing nearly total dominance in the fight. Plus Silva has been 14-0 since then. I just don't see how Okami wins.Click To Get My Free Training Newsletter... Do It NOW!
