Okami's "win" over Anderson was a DQ that took place in a fight where Silva was completely tooling him until he hit him with an illegal blow that he didn't know was illegal. He did not defeat Anderson, as so many people around here like to lead on.

But as for the poll. I say absolutely. Anderson already gets booed by the piss poor, unappreciative american fans... he might as well fight in places he's guaranteed boos... then at least they will make sense.

The great thing with Japan is, the audience will NEVER boo AS.

They actually respect the fighters and are quite different in their approach than all the western (not only US) audiences.
Personally I like it, most people don't because the atmsophere is that much different. You can hear the fighters breathe because is silent like in a library.

To get the japanese to boo, that would take something.

Maybe bring Bisping in and he spits on their flag.

LoL, that is very true actually. I don't watch a lot of dream so I guess it's been since Pride closed shop that I've really watched a Japanese based event.
