Ploy by UFC to get media off GSP

Recently, it has been announced that Okami is going to fight Anderson Silva at Rio. However, Anderson Silva was on Mike Straka's fighting words recently and said he has no interest in fighting Okami, saying that fight finished in a KO.

Is this a ploy to get the media off GSP leading up to the fight? most of the questions would revolve around " if you win, are you looking forward to this fight?" and there would be tremendous pressure for GSP to win.

I really think that the UFC just did that to get the media to stop talking about it so much, and if GSP wins, he will be facing Silva.

Probably, it only makes sense. It would be dumb to announce a fight for GSP against Silva because he could lose to Shields, then there'd really be no point for them to fight lol

Who knows though, if GSP does beat Shields they could dick Okami out of a title shot and grant GSP a fight, not like anyone would complain lol

Nobody will be backing Okami that's for sure. He lost to Sonnen and barely beat Marquart and somehow deserves a title shot

If Silva had beaten him soundly in their first fight we wouldn't even be having this discussion.

Bring on Silva vs GSP!

I would assume the Anderson/Okami fight will happen either way. It would be too soon for GSP and they wouldn't want to hold out Silva from Rio.

Yeah seriously. If that's the case I guess Vera was seconds away from KO'ing Jones too.

I didn't describe it good.

Silva was talking about the last fight they had, where it ended in a disqualification because of an upkick while Okami was still on the mat. He believes that Okami could have continued but chose just to get the DQ win. So Anderson feels like that was a KO for him.

Except that comparison doesn't make any sense.

Vera got stopped.

Okami got knocked out by an illegal upkick.

For further clarification - Silva didn't say he had no interest in fighting Okami. He said he wasn't interested in a "revenge" fight (for his DQ loss). In spite of the loss on his record, he felt like Okami lost the fight (and I guess he's satisfied with that). In fact, Silva said that if Okami earned the right to fight for the title, he'd do it.

You don't remember Vera upkicking and rocking Jones from his guard in an identical way to Okami? Except Jones didn't milk it like Okami did I guess.
