Yushin Okami vs. Dan Miller at UFC 98

Under the events section of the UFC website, it has a match-up between Miller and Okami. Huge test for Miller, and a win should solidify a title shot for Okami. I like Okami to win this, using his strikes effectively to set up his take-downs and work his ground and pound. Plus, Okami's submission defense is very good as well. Miller's ability to push the pace should make this an exciting fight, and it could very well be a UD for Miller as well. But, I like Okami via UD. Thoughts?

Not sure if Miller deserves this, but if it turns out to be true... then hell, what can you do? I really like both guys. Okami is strong as hell and is hard to submit.

As long as after Yushin wins this- give him his "promised" title shot. I won't hold my breath though. I honestly hate this match-up- for f#ck's sake give Okami a top 5 guy to shut up the nay sayers- this won't do shit. Stop jerking him around and give him a top name to prove his worth.

At this point the only person who deserves a shot at Okami is Anderson. He has earned his shot. But aside from that I really love this matchup and 98 is looking like a fun, fun show. Taking Okami in this as I would with just about anyone he might fight.

Damnit, give Okami someone like Marquardt, this is bullshit. I can't wait until Okami gets a shot within the next 12 years.

Poor Okami gets screwed out of his title shot.

I think Okami will win this fight definitively. He definitely deserves his title shot. Anderson has 5 fights left on his contract. After Leites that probably means a fight with Maia, another fight with Marquardt, perhaps a fight with GSP. I think Okami is perfectly deserving of the 4th spot.

Those aren't neccesarily in the order that I think they will happen, if they happen at all. But I think they are probably the most likely fights for Silva.
