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.
Weidman can threaten Anderson the same way Hendricks can threaten GSP. They are legit challengers until they lose and everyone says they weren't good enough anyways.

I don't quite agree, Hendricks has pretty much the same shot as everyone else does against GSP and that's a puncher's chance.

Anderson meanwhile has lost several rounds to wrestlers which Weidman is, and Weidman has better ju-jitsu than Henderson or Sonnen, where as Rockhold, Bisping, and Belcher are all strikers who would be forced to stand with a guy who probably can't be beat standing.

So - just curious here. Does it look like Okami was out cold here to anyone else?

^Was just about to post that. I think he definitely went out for a sec. He goes limp immediately and looks like a person who just woke up afterwards.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Yeah it definitely stunned him. If Alan could have exploded out the ref might stopped it.

Belcher would have felt him go out and got out of there. Okami didnt fall limply into Belcher. He got his head down there quick sharp and his hips and legs looked in control. Look at his right hand as its all happening. It looks to me that he's going for Belchers right wrist the moment his head drops. He's being active he whole time.

Belcher could have finished that last guillotine had he not had gloves on.

Okami did absolutely nothing to threaten Belcher that entire fight. I will always detest seeing fighters smothered in a decision loss.

Every time Belcher touched Okami it looked like Okami put one foot in the grave. Belcher made some awful decisions in this fight, he could have won if he had focused on hitting Okami instead of going for subs.

When he had mount, if he had just dropped some elbows, Okami would have quit.
