the betting line is gonna be ridiculous for this fight,but unless okami gets kick in the face, he has a shot in that fight.
Actually, a kick in the face was what won him the fight the last time, and it's probably his best shot this time. Anderson was kicking his ass before the illegal kick.
It's a 25 minute fight. Okami is not much of a threat to finish A. Silva. Silva, on the other hand, can end the fight at any moment, from any position. If it goes to a decision, Silva will probably win anyway, but I don't like Okami's chances of surviving 25 minutes.
People saw what Chael did to Anderson and think he is vulnerable now. Just remember, Chael did the same thing to Okami. Okami didn't submit him though.
yea weve seen the first fight but thanks for the recap
If there's been a fighter that has been more mistreated than Jon Fitch, it's Yushin Okami. Although I am not a huge fan of his mouth, I am a fan of his solid stand up skills along with judo and wrestling.
He's hungry, and after losing to Sonnen he's improved his wrestling. He's ready for a title fight ...but is Rio ready for an upset if it comes?
what do you have against his mouth?
He doesn't know how to seal it at times.
lol you stupid dude.
Yea I really didn't get it either. Still don't. Is he offending you doomsday or do you just want complete silence haha?
Riiiight... I suppose then you guys haven't seen alot of his interviews. Yes, I'm the stupid one *sarcasm*
The most underrated fighter in the UFC. Hope he gets that belt! Doubt it though.
Lol....Did you mean one of the most boring fighters in the UFC?
He will get knocked out.
Hush yo mouth UG! I think he can survive a 5 round decision loss...
Haha...Anything is possible
in that case i hope okami wins in the most boring ass decision in ufc history haha
i went back and watched their first fight and its not like anderson was killing him it was only two minutes long anderson was winning in the standup then okami took him down and the illegal upkick. i think okami has a better chance than most give him credit for
This is going to be another quick night for Anderson,,, I am sorry I do not see what is so great about this guy,, he HAS NO SHOT...PEORID!!!! thi guys by far has not business getting in the cage with Silva,,,, I wouldn't be surprise if he gets hurt while he is training and they call this fight off.....
i just hope the fight is competitive, i dont care who wins, Silva is the best and all, hes just not my cup of tea
Okami get ready to be on silvas KO reel again!!!! LOL
2 things worry me about this interview,
1, he said hes only been training 2 times a week, doing sparring training
2, saying that he'll work out the finer points of strategy closer to fight time,
when you are the number 1 contender you should be strategising and training everyday, specifically for the champ, training for his weaknesses, tirelessly, Okami isn't good enough to be taking this so lightly
I thought he said he trains with Akiyama 2 times a week.
he only hit silva one time in the 1st fight Okami should reserve a room at the ER in rio now! highlight reel here Okami comes again!
We all know just how great at every aspect of the game Anderson Silva is but Okami is seriously being overlooked imo. Have people already forgotten the 5 round mauling we recently saw AS take at the hands of the loudest mouth in the UFC Sonnen, even though he pulled out the sub at the end he cut it fine, nearly losing his belt, and Okami is eaqually as gifted, if not more so, at Sonnen when it comes to grappling ability, he's also very difficult to put away. I think Silva will win the striking war like most, naturally, but if Okami can take him down and inflict damage repeatedly the same way Chael did (shocking us all!) then it could be another long night for the spider......
