Okami had no marks on his face after he tooled Nate.
Sonnen looked like a mess after that fight.
IF Chale can surive 23.30 minutes then Okami can as well. Okami is probably even more endurable then Chael.
Anderson has huge weaknessess in his game and guys like Okami and Cheal can expose those holes.
Hell I am farily sure Paul-Harris would defeat Silva in the first Round most likely.
And I am one of the biggest Silva Fans out there.
palhares couldnt even get a title shot, i love the guy be lol he would never beat anderson, way too 1 dimensional, would be maia all over again
anyway, i dont see why sonnens face matters, sonnen always looks like he got hit by a train after his fights, he dominated nate for 3 full rounds, okami didnt do shit against nate
and again, just because sonnen lasted for almost 25 mins okami can as well? why? theres no logic in that, sonnen is a better wrestler than okami, a MUCH better wrestler and he has a different style
just because okami is also a wrestler doesnt mean he is like chael, hes very different, different style of wrestling, a lot slower, more patient and he doesnt risk getting hit in the face and go balls out just to get a TD
okami is a 100% different fighter, and silva will remind every1 how much of impact his bruised/fractured rib made during the sonnen fight
anderson actually has nice scrambles and is very active from guard, i dont see him just lying down like he did against chael but lets wait until fight night for that to happen
still at the end of the day okami hasnt shown any dominance to any other fighter that would suggest he can hold andy down and do what chael did
im not saying okami cant take AS down, of course he can, but not the way chael did for 5 rounds and as fast as he did...+ a healthy silva fighting in front of his ppl, finally ppl wont be booing him...this fight will have no resemblence to sonnen vs AS IMO
