I will openly admit I voted for Okami just because I feel he is the best fight and the best chance of beating AS at 185 currently. I think Okami has the best chance to beat AS via decision, I really don't think finishing AS is an option unless AS gets hurt somehow and has to tap due to injury more than actual pain inflicted (a la Shogun vs Coleman).

BUT I won't bet $.05 on it. I think AS will win, probably in the form of a KO, but I think Okami has a way more legit chance than people give him credit for, a fact I have been spouting off on these forums for a couple years now.

Anderson skill level is just to high for okami to deal with, not only striking but even if he does get taken down he has show he can submit almost anyone. Okami has awesome wrestling, the only problem is getting in that close to Silva is dangerous for anyone. I see okami sitting back the first round and Anderson doing the same, until okami tries that first shot. Then im hoping anyways AS unleashes some vicious combo's that we can watch for years to come.

I may have to represent, as most if not all of Yushin's nuthuggers seem to have disappeared.

It looks like Okami's main focus in training camp is takedowns, top and bottom positioning. Which means he already knows he's beat in the striking dept...no brainer.

Saw footage of Anderson doing high altitude training which means he IS PREPARED for a five rounder.

I don't think this fight is going to be a blitz. It might very well be a five round war with Anderson Silva coming out on top with the UD. Yushin is gonna get punished, but he will probably score some points with some takedowns winning at least one round if not two.

Anderson Silva by UD and FOTN candidate!

I would have picked Okami if it was during a different time but not now. Anderson has got a lot going for him at the moment so i see him being even more motivated and ready to go beast mode.
