Everyone is confident they can beat AS. I don't know if it can happen at middleweight, but I'm often wrong about stuff.
I feel bad for Okami because he deserves a title shot for a long time now and when he basically got a guarantee for a title shot he's prolly going to get looked over and the superfight will happen (if GSP wins) so it sucks for Okami but honestly if he fights Silva he will get killed
If Okami pushed Silva like Chael Sonnen did, he has a good chance of pulling out a Decision win, Okami has about 200% better Submission Defense, and he is actually a decent boxer as of late.
I think he will get overlooked too.
Okami will never beat Silva... period!!
In all fairness, Okami WAS the last person to chalk up a win against Silva. Even before the illegal hit that resulted in the DQ victory, he had managed to put Silva on his back, which is the only place anyone has managed to hurt Anderson. Okami's also a lot more difficult to submit than Sonnen, who's gotten Triangled more times than Okami has lost. I don't know if Okami would be able to GnP Silva out, but if he comes with five rounds of gas, it's a very real possibility that he could Jon Fitch his way to victory.
okami won by Dq, on january 20 2006, but Anderson has been dominating the MW DV and Okami will have a hard time with him
The point is he deserves a shot.
Wake the hell up Cage before Okami comes and wrestles you! Nah just messin man haha.
yep everybody is literally sleeping on Okami,but we all know he's not gonna strike with the dude,i'm just saying.
silva may me invisible again.... but he's td defense didn't improve in one night.
Not interested in this fight. Give Anderson GSP or ask him to move up.
I enjoy how everyone was tooting Marquardt's horn saying he's the man to beat Silva but when Okami beats him everyone starts sleeping on him.
Forever the underdog.
Anderson should fight GSP next. After that fight he could retire or move to lightheavy weight to fight winner of Jones vs Shogun.
Then question is: is there anyone in meddlewight that is able to beat Anderson. Personally I would say Chael Sonnen(maybe) but IMO Anderson should give away his middleweight title. So we could have like Okami and someone else fight for that title. What is UFC going to do, when Anderson has beat every possible top 10 contender in middleweight and then he retires? Who are going to fight for the title?
In this case , maybe the unlucky Nate marquart would finally get his chance to fight for the title. hahahahaahhaa
is it me or okami looks like cristiane cyborg.... xD
the 2 people that would definately beat silva is GSP and shogun. GSP by decision and shogun by anything he wants
