I think this was just an example of people deluding themselves and then being disappointed. As MMA fans seem to ALWAYS do.
See Tito vs Rashad.
There really wasn't any reason to not favour Anderson immensely.
I'm not sure why anyone would've thought that Okami would just come in guns blazing and blast doubling Silva across the octagon. Especially when they had fought years prior and that could definitely be used as a pretty decent reference point.
Granted, Okami has improved a lot since then, but in other areas...mainly his boxing and defensive wrestling....and making improvements doesn't change your temperament as a fighter...he's not suddenly going to be more aggressive.
