So, there are actually people who think this guy has a shot in hell beating Silva?

I never actually saw the first fight, this guy is ******* horrid. Furthermore, Silva has improved like crazy since then and this fight was at 165?

There is no point in this fight even taking place, Silva is going to ******* rofflestomp this kid. This is a waste of a Silva fight, he is nearing the end of his career and THIS is the kind of fights he's getting? The hell is this?

Anyways, I agree with you to an extent.
Silva isn't going to fight for much longer and this fight doesn't promise much excitement, but then again, you never never know.

I guess Silva had to get an opponent, and Okami was the one that made more sense. He did win the title shot fight with nate. Not in a devastating way, but hey he did win it. He was next in line, unfortunately.

Don't forget, the hype machine can take the whole the last man that "beat" silva and blow it out of proportion. Which is only good for them.

Yes. Anderson still isn't a great wrestler and Okami has some serious grappling chops. Okami has also improved far more than Silva has. Sure, Silva's refined parts of his game, but Okami's taken his wrestling to another dimension, and now is a more than competent boxer. Okami is also MUCH larger physically since the first fight. Looks like a totally different fighter.

But yes you are absolutely correct, Anderson shouldn't be fighting the No.3 MW, i mean seriously how stupid is that

good wrestler who is ever improving and working with somebody like Sonnen can only help. On top of his wrestling Okami is also an explosive and a more dynamic fighter, where Sonnen is more methodical. Okami definetly presents some unique problems for Silva while also possessing some of the tools that Sonnen used to exploit Silva's largest hole. The first fight is largely irrelevant as both fighters have evolved so much that if you expect to see the same two fighters in the cage your nothing short of fooling yourself.

Only way Okami loses is if he comes in shell-shocked or intimidated. If he comes in with Sonnen's mentality of fighting like he killed your dog then Silva is going lose his belt.

I actually think Okami is going to UD Silva. Silva has been - to an extent - exposed.

I like Silva. He has some great highlights and his striking in on another level. It seems as though good wrestling with good sub defense is the key to beating him. You better believe Okami knows that and has the tools to win. As Khov mentioned, the only way I see Okami losing is if he goes in there and is scared. If Okami is hesitant Silva will pick him apart and KO him in 1.

OP surely this is edging on troll-like behaviour! Any fighter has a chance on beating another fighter, EVERYONE has a punchers chance at least, coupled with Okami's effective wrestling approach he has a decent shot....did you think Sonnen would have done so well just looking at the fight on paper? No you didn't.

Your dismissal of Okami with no real reason to back it up is childish and amateur at best!

That is a fair point in an intellectual battle of wits amongst highly-educated forum members :D
