If Okami fought Rich like he did in the 3rd round he would have had his shot earlier. But I agreee, the guy is getting shafted by Zuffa. Especially relegated to the pre lims to look bad against Dean Lister
You can't have endless title eliminators, then we'd be short contenders and "ZOMG who's Anderson going to fight?" So why not throw him in there with Leites.
However, this show won't draw good and people will see it as a waste of time again for Silva. The guy needs a big name to draw with him right now, and that just isn't there at 185. Again, the ufc is all about global expansion, sign Akiyama and throw this shit down in Korea. Be far more worthwhile than to have him fight on a card against Leites without Cote or GSP there in Montreal
