Anderson is a counter striker who's style is designed for fighters to either come after him, or he's going to act a fool and piss the fighters off until they come after him. I don't know why most people, especially Dana, don't realize this.
Dana wants Anderson to go in there and dominate, but what he doesn't realize is that his dominant victories have come against fighters that go after him a la Chris Leben, Rich Franklin, Forrest Griffin etc. Where his victories where he's acting a fool have come against fighters that are much more conservative and wait for Anderson to make a move ex: Patrick Cote, Demaian Maia etc.
Anderson doesn't act a fool just to be a goof ball, he acts a fool so he can make his opponent mad to the point where his opponent actually decides to strike with him because that plays right into Silva's game plan. It shouldn't be a secret.
Yushin Okami is a very conservative striker that doesn't take a lot of chances. So unless he plans on going after Silva, I see Silva goof balling his way to another 5 rd UD.
Then I think Dana's going to fire him after the fight and thats how his UFC career is going to end. Silva 29 - 4, 14-0 in the UFC, fired for goof balling on the night of August 27, 2011, there for forfeiting his middle weight title, and never showing his face in the UFC again.
