Well Okami is a good wrestler. I can see him taking Silva down a few times. Silva will probably either submit Okami or knock him out.

This fight will show if Silva has patched up the holes he had in his game in the Sonnen fight.

IMO Silva has improved more since their last fight than Okami has.

Okami's sub defence is excellent. He has never been tapped in an MMA Fight. I doubt Silva will catch him off his back. Here is a video demonstrating Okami's sub defence, it is his match against Maia from ADCC 2007. If a Mod could embed that would be much appreciated.

Wow, Yushin's got serious jitz for a wrestler. He took Maia's back in a straight BJJ match and almost mounted him.

He really does. Most wrestlers would be happy to try and get a take down, make a few lame attempts at a pass and see what happens. Okami went all out trying to pass, risked getting leg locked, was desperatly trying to get side control, was even looking for a guillotine from top before he tried to take the back. I am not even an Okami fan but I appreciate him a lot for how he performed in this match. Whilst Maia won in terms of BJJ scoring, if that had been an MMA fight, Okami would have been seen to win the grappling.

Imo impossible to do in such a short period of time.

I think it's the other way around actually. Okami is a well rounded beast these days, while Silva is still primaraly a striker only.

I've seen that match before and it really shows his skills. And that was 07, only 1 year after the DQ victory over Anderson.


I have to give Okami the edge in this fight and I would only bet on him here. He just has everything you need to defeat a guy like Silva.

Hell, I call him to be the man to defeat the Spider!!

Okami got embarrassed in the last fight and he will get embarrassed again.

His defensive wrestling is much better than his offensive wrestling. It isn't good enough to be a decent wrestler with good sub defense to beat Andy.

Okami is far too tentative in his fighting style, he isn't going to be shooting in straight away like Sonnen. I think he'll allow Silva to find his rhythm and get picked apart.

He does have a chance, but I think it's quite a small one. His offensive wrestling isn't quite good enough and he isn't aggressive enough to really put Andy in trouble.
