I thought Okami would win, but I didn't expect Belcher to even look non top-10 material in the process. He looked like he didn't have a clue at times.
That's because Belcher was grossly overrated from his victory over another overrated guy in Palhares. The difference is Belcher is a legit top ten fighter but he was in no way, shape, form, or fashion the number two guy in the division and he certainly was no threat for Anderson. Weidman has been and always will be the only guy to threaten Anderson with Chael gone. Belcher, Bisping, and Rockhold have nothing for him.

Belcher got a lot of people all over him because he was able to fight off Palhares but Okami was a completely different animal, it's easier to beat a guy who will attack and take that kind of risk in Palhares where as Okami didn't attack and give Belcher any chance to wind up in a favorable position.
