Okami Vs MacDonald could earn MW title shot.

Yay, some news that doesn't involve a great fighter retiring.

Quote:
A UFC 77 middleweight bout between Yushin Okami (20-4 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and Jason MacDonald (19-8 MMA, 3-1 UFC) could earn the winner an immediate title shot, UFC president Dana White said.

During yesterday’s UFC 77 media conference call, White said that both fighters — as well as recent UFC signee Dan Henderson — could all earn consideration when it comes to the UFC’s middleweight title.

However, despite the potential significance of the Okami-MacDonald bout, it has been relegated to the undercard of UFC 77, which takes place Saturday, Oct. 20 at U.S. Bank Arena in downtown Cincinnati. Current champ Anderson Silva and former champ Rich Franklin meet in the night’s main event.

The UFC’s middleweight division is arguably the organization’s thinnest. Okami and MacDonald aren’t exactly the sport’s biggest draws or most marketable names, though both middleweights have put together solid records inside the Octagon. However, the two fighters could benefit from a current drought of contenders. White hinted that both fighters have made a case for a title shot, but he wouldn’t fully commit to the idea.

“I’m not sure yet,” White said. “Those guys are definitely in the mix, though. Dan Henderson could drop down, as well.“

Henderson recently lost a five-round unanimous decision to light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson. However, despite the loss, Henderson says he’d prefer to fight at 205 pounds rather than 185.
Well I thought this was pretty inevitable. Id rather Hendo came down to 185, but the winner of Okami Vs MacDonald is the only logical next for Anderson Silva if he wins.

Discuss.

Okami vs Silva 2 would be fun.. not sure if I'd want to see Okami Franklin 2 again though.

Hmm... I think it would be more fun to watch Silva smash McDonalds face, but then again he needs to clear that "loss" against Okami. I don't really care, but if Franklin wins I do NOT wanna see Okami vs Franklin 2 *shiver*

Okami should win this fight, and Silva vs Okami 2 wouldn't be bad but Silva will probably end things before Okami starts Hulking up in the third. That is, if Silva doesn't get upkick happy.

Franklin vs Okami 2 would, of course, suck.

So if Dana admits this basically is a #1 Contender match...why the hell is he leaving it on the undercard.
