That he's not on Silva's level shouldn't be a slight against him.

Some fecking respect for these fighters would sure be nice.
Yep, it's just their way of trying to tarnish a win that dominant. Okami earned his title shot, came with a plan, Silva beat him....badly. "Oh but he didn't stick to his gameplan," maybe that's because he took a knee, then took a jab that dropped him when he had the slightest hint of trying to come in again. Show some respect to Anderson as well for being that good.

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.

Man **** okami, no disrespect to the guy he is one hell of a fighter. But anderson silva is on another level. Its like having michael Jordan up against anybody. U can't take away anything from okami he probably go back like vitor,chael and destroy everyone in the mw division.

4.5 or 5... it doesnt matter. Once again, Sonnen lost.

I would love to see the rematch though, just to hear all these people eat there own words. AS by TKO.

I am asking him to stick to the game plan which he was winning the first round with until he pissed his pant's and ran scared.

There was no judo involved so let's not play that game. Im not discrediting Anderson. the dude get's his props but Okami fell to pieces in front of the world tonight. to deny that is asinine.

I realise I'm coming off heated and I apologise but I wanted war's tonight and feel cheated is all.

I guess my main point is don't step in to fight the big boy's if you can't even win the war in your head. To many guy's letting things get between their ear's.
Maybe he didn't like what he was feeling while he was clinching with Anderson? When a fighter clinches, they can feel what they can and can't do.

To anyone implying that im trying to tarnish Silva's win, I would like to say that you are off base my friends. Silva is amazing but nothing irks me more than when a fighter is doing fine and then shit's the bed for no reason other than he got between his own ears.

I didn't see any way Okami was going to win this and I didn't pick him to win but judging by his performance he shouldn't have been there tonight. This should have been the Sonnen rematch or the GSP fight. I know how good Silva is and I don't want these water fights where Silva just runs through the competition that we know isn't on his level.

I know this is selfish of me and that Okami deserved his shot but as a fan who want's to see Silva challenged this just seemed like a waste of time to me when we know he's on a limited time scale for how long he will continue his fight career.

Goodnight guy's the angry white boy is going to bed. I know im rambling and not making any good point's so feel free to disregard everything ive said. I must slumber.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Silva prevails once again and the haters are left in sorrow where they will remain for the entire duration of his UFC career.

Anderson Silva is POUND 4 POUND the best in the world...

Again, we are talking POUND 4 POUND
