Very, very good post. +rep

If you can't stop a fighter from imposing his gameplan, then you deserve to lose. Belcher fought like a damn idiot. Okami is a good fighter and he's obviously strong as an ox, but he doesn't react to getting hit very well and doesn't do good with consistent pressure against him.

Belcher should have won this fight.
Kudos to Okami for getting it done though.

Good fight, good fight. Send Belcher back down the ladder where he belongs for a while. I give him respect for what he's overcome, but he hasn't been as impressive as others have made him out to be in my opinion.

I also agree with Clyde about the boss of the company example. It's a pay check, a pretty good one at that. Okami may also earn at least one more fight with Anderson anyways.

Well, the Belcher 'Title shot' train has been well and truly derailed.

I for one, couldnt be happier. Nobody with a tattoo and shorts as bad as that deserves to be anywhere near a title fight.

All in. How much ya want to bet...lolz. Yushin cost me $5 million dollars worth of credit. BELCHER!!! That was such a let down. Sad thing is, even if they fought again I'd still pick Belcher. How could he get dominated like that especially after fighting him before. Actually you know what, he was WAYYY overconfident. Dana mentioned that Belcher said he'll fight Bisping when Vitor gets "injured," insinuating he was going to beat Okami handedly. I get Brunson, Costa, Cain and lose with Belcher and Guillard. Ouch!

As much as I want to see Bisping vs Anderson...how does he win against Vitor.

Really?

Worse than those Blue and Silver dealies we have seen you in

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.

Bisping is a much better technical striker than Vitor. Vitor has relied so much on his speed and power throughout his entire career, while his striking evolved very little.

I suspect Vitor might throw a few kicks to slow down Bisping and stop Bisping from circling away. Bisping needs to establish the threat of the takedown by catching one of those kicks and getting Belfort on his back. Got to watch out for the left straight that Belfort always throws.

Bisping should really use the oblique kick that Jones used on Belfort. Forces Belfort to stay upright and reduces the power of his left straight. Whenever Belfort goes in for the flurry, tie him up in the clinch and grind him out against the fence.

Bisping is more technical but his jaw isn't great. I fought the people saying he had a glass jaw because of his Hendo performance, but he showed he can't take a great shot in the Stann fight. I think if Vitor lands, which is more likley than Stann landing, he has the tools to end it. Bisping can win by out grappling him against the cage though.

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.
