Look at who Silva was fighting. Vitor Belfort is known for his highly aggressive striking style. If you closely analyze the fight, when Vitor started fighting conservatively, Silva started to make a bunch of crazy movements. When Vitor decided he wasn't having any of that, and started to bang with Silva, that's when he caught the flash knock out.
Vitor is a patient counter striker with deadly finishing skills. His striking style is hardly aggressive...this dude has lost fights in the past from doing his statue impression which he seems to do in varying capacity every fight.

Anderson just caught him with a big kick. Period. It wasn't a counter, he just flat out kicked him in the face.

The more I think about it the more I see a perfect set up for another highlight reel beatdown for AS. I admit I first picked Okami to be able to get a hold of him and muscle his way to a victory but now I just see big slow Okami getting tee'd off on with vicious Muay Thai.

Vitor is also known for showing up in some fights, and Statue of Libertying in others.

Regardless of whether Vitor's style is aggressive or not, the point that I'm trying to make Anderson only fights fighters that or going to fight him. When he fought Vitor, it is clear that Vitor's intentions were to be the aggressor as soon as Anderson began to do those antics. That was when Anderson caught Vitor with that front kick. I'm not saying that it was a counter strike. I'm saying it wasn't until before then that Vitor began to fight Anderson.

Okami will lose from pure exhuastion/beat down. I do believe Anderson Silva has a lot of pent up anger and Yushin will have the honor in receiving this gift especially now that he's training with Fail Chodenen.

Somewhere along the fight Anerson is going to land a very unique strike. It'll be his msg to Yushin and a gift for all the Brazillians and fans.

Maybe a Capoiera kick.

Anderson KO. Okami will try to wrestle him for sure but he will get destroyed in the clinch with knees.
Silva KO clinch knees 3rd round.

Anderson is way to elusive and technical on the feet for Okami, who is simply to slow to use his wrestling effectively in this fight. Expect another highlight reel finish by Silva, and more hate from doubters afterwards.

I don't really see any good reason to pick Okami in this one...

Because it's more fun. Plus if I'm right I get to say "I told you so".
