Its bad enough that Okami's fight with Chael Sonnen was relegated to the prelims but to add insult to injury the UFC is not even showing it on the one hour prelimenary show on Spike before the PPV. The two fights selected are Ryan Bader-Eric Schaffer and Antoni Hardonk-Pat Berry. While I really want to see those fights I think its complete BS that Okami's fight will not be shown. Even if he wins I don't think Okami will ever get a title shot.
"Nothing like a strangulation to get the circulation going."
I'm too distracted by the image of Yushin getting shafted...
Just kidding. Yushin should just jump to strikeforce or something. Seriously underrated by Dana, I guess he's getting punished for the dull fight that was Yushin v Franklin, but he is more aggressive now.
Okami needs to finish Sonnen in this fight - needs to be impressive.
If Hendo leaves UFC and Okami beats Sonnen then i think he should fight Marquardt for the number 1 contender to Anderson/Belfort winner
His fights are usually boring. Dana wants to show exciting fights on spike to make more people want to order the ppv. Hardonk vs Barry is pretty much a guaranteed KO and Baders fights are pretty good. I like Okami and hope he gets a title shot but it wont happen for awhile and i understand why he isnt on the main card or on spike. Hopefully he finishes the fight thne maybe they will show it.
