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.

Interesting prediction. Can't see it happening though.

Okami will almost certainly try a Sonnen-like strategy on Silva, but i'm not sure he has the speed to do it. Sonnen out-wrestled Okami badly so i'm not expecting Okami to do anything similar to what Chael did to Anderson.

I have Silva by KO via knee in the 3rd or 4th.

P.S. Love that drawing of Silva/Okami Kry0.

Cant wait for this fight! I personally think this is going to be a round 1 TKO with Okami collapsing to the mate after a brutal muay thai exchange pressed against the cage, Anderson is just going to outclass Okami.

I would prefer AS to completely dismantle him over 3-4 rounds though, show some of that skill that makes him #1 and put his haters to rest.

I don't like Silva very much, and am a legit GSP nuthugger...but I have Silva at #1 right now regardless p4p. Vitor has been awesome lately and is the 2nd best MW in the UFC and Silva punted his face a few minutes in for an easy W. One would have to hate Anderson not to have him at #1.

Err no. You only have to look at Silva's last fight to realize he is highly aggressive. One shot KO out of nowhere on a highly dangerous striker, that is pure offense.

I think El Guapo's prediction is most likely.

Silva via upkick from his back the split second Okami tries to leave his guard and to stand up, touching the ground with his feet only.

The only thing that intrigues me about this fight is knowing that Anderson Silva is getting up there in age, and everybody slows down at some point. Great fighters lose their abilities, it's a scientific fact and will inevitably happen to all fighters, and it happens faster to fighters who rely heavily on instincts and quick reflexes.
Could this be the fight where Anderson finally looks over the hill and on the end of his career? Tune in to find out!

That's exactly the point I was getting at.

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.
