It's tough to give Okami credit when he fought so poorly. It was embarassing to be honest, standing right in front of Anderson not moving going punch for punch. Given Okami's build and size I could have put up a better fight, and I'm not kidding, that was absolutely horrendous. Like laying down on your back against Lesnar or trying to outwrestle GSP, about as stupid as you could be. People are all praising Anderson, he may deserve it, but not for this fight. Okami handed his face over on a silver platter, one of the worst strategies I've ever seen in a fight.

It would appear that way, but there's more to it than meets the eye. I just reviewed the fight twice and watched it three times now reviewing key moments multiple times.

First round was very solid for Okami. He dictated the fight and got em where he wanted; against the fench in a clinch. Except he couldn't take em down. The final seconds threw him off big time when Anderson landed the roundhouse kick. Right then and there I'm sure Okami was having flashbacks of their last encounter.

Second round Anderson turned it up. He allowed Okami to take control of the Octagon in the first now it was his turn. He threw a plethora of shots and feints that confused em big time.

Then he planted his feet and jab countered multiple times and I didn't realize this but they threw jabs SIMULTANEOUSLY except Anderson sidestepped it by a "few inches" and snapped Okami's head back. Okami still hadn't retracted his jab yet that's why he got dropped...it was another sniper shot except a warning for what was to come.

Now this is my favorite. Okami got up and stalked Anderson until his back was against the fence and guess what he let em. This was a TRAP. He went into his crouching Karate stance while Okami inched his way towards him subsequently throwing the left cross. Anderson dodged it and spun around and surprise...Okami was pinned against the fence. Then bam right cross counter dropped em and it was over.

So you see it's not that Okami handed him the fight. It was a very high level chess match with traps, diversions, and position plays all utilized for the end game.

I couldn't watch this live because of the hurricane.

Predictable post fight trashing of Okami. Everyone who said Andy would win told you people that Okami wasn't the fighter you were making him out to be. Okami did what Okami always does and got beat down because he was fighting the GOAT not Chokequardt.

Andy is the greatest ever and no one else is close.

Haha, "couldn't take him down"? It is pretty damn hard to secure a takedown when you never even try. Okami did practically nothing to get a takedown. He held Silva there and responded to silva's knees. Then he backed away. The clinch and the work against the cage was a waste of time.

By now everybody should know that Anderson forces majority of his opponents to look like that.

My question is how does he know what to do everytime. How many times has he been stuck behind the cage in his matches and have been able to get out or land a beautiful counter. It's only the unpredictable moves that may work; flying heel hook, charging at em Chael style, just anything out of the ordinary.

- Cote tried for a takedown and Anderson spun around pinning him against the fence. That's when he got up and asked Cote if he needed a hand. Then they clinched and Cote went for a exit counter and Anderson dodged it.
- Demian was circling and Anderson landed a flying knee in that direction at the same moment. Same one against Carlos Newton that knocked him out, of course it didn't work as well against Lutter, but he ended up tapping him out.
- dodged every punch Vitor threw. The one that NOBODY SAW was when Vitor caught Anderson's roundhouse kick. On their way down Vitor swung with a left and midway in the air Anderson dodged it and on the ground Vitor swung again with a right this time with Andersn dodging it again. No joke...review it. There's no way anybody would see it the first time.
- James "The Sandman" lands his first leg kick and pays the price for it and no it wasn't a sloppy one.
- Griffin was his msg to Dana White and co. + fans around the world. "Are you not entertained!"
- Okami match showed that Anderson was not playing around. He came in prepared and sized him up the first five minutes to see what he had for em. Felt his power in the first and executed in the second.
- the list goes on

This shows me that while Rousimar has THE WORST situational awareness Anderson has heightened awareness.

He's got "Spider" senses.

Seriously, that was vintage Silva. Got to be honest, he is the best in the world right now and arguably of all time. Okami is as legit a contender as they come and he took him out with alarming ease. That's not normal. Simply amazing.

Andy is just that(!) good.

I dont want to see Anderson fight anyone else other than GSP, Sonnen or JBJ at this point. Those are the only guys somewhat the same size than can challenge him.

If Dana decides to give Bisping a shot he has clearly lost his mind and Is picking fights to protect his fan favorite cash cows.

in all honesty anderson really isnt a cash cow and the only reason he would give bisping a fight is for the european expansion.
