Not as brutal as some might expect.

In fact i think Okami has a legitimate chance at victory.

I think Silva wil win this fight rather easily. I say this knowing that in MMA anything can and will happen. I just don't see it. This is a well deserved shot for Okami. I hope that Henderson fights fights soon, so we can see if a rematch with silva can happen at the begining of 09. I would have to assume Bisping will be on the card as well, hopefully fighting a contender.

Finally, shitt

okami earned this shot and will stand a better chance against Anderson Silva than people give him credit for. I am going to say this is going to be anderson's toughest fight in his UFC career. But i still think anderson wins, in the 3rd possibly.

but i wouldnt be so shocked if okami pulled off an upset, get silva to the ground and works some ground and pound to a tko victory. but im still leaning towards silva.

should be a good rematch though.

I think Okami is going to try a heel hook, like Chonan did.

Okami isn't fast enough to pull a flying scissor heel hook like Chonan. He ain't crazy enough either.

I think Okami can win by either TKO or decision.

I think Okami has a decent shot, hes been tough for everybody, and hes just so strong so I think he has a gret chance at beating Anderson, but im leaning towards Anderson, because point blank hes the best p4p fighter in the world, and hes a bit more well rounded, and has run through all the top competiton.

I think andersons going to knock okami out in the first round. I dont think okami has the best chin out there, and i think anderson will crack him early, okami will try to get a sloppy takedown and recover, then anderson will k.o him with a knee. Ive got the upmost respect for okami, and im glad hes getting his shot, i just dont think he can win.

I don't give a traditional wrestler ANY CHANCE against Anderson Silva. Dan Henderson had the best chance since he's a Grecco Roman wrestler. Their's a HUGE difference. A traditional wrestler like Sean Sherk and Tito Ortiz, when they take you down, most of the time they land in somebodies full or half guard since they shoot doubles and singles. When a Grecco Roman wrestler takes you down, it's from the clinch and like the Hendo fight showed, they land with side mount so half the work done, so no passing needed.

The problem is Anderson Silva has an amazing butterfly or just regular guard. His limbs are so long and he's so flexible, it is incredibly difficult to pass guard not to mention while attempting to pass the difficulty of not getting caught in an armbar or triangle. Providing a miracle since anything can happen in MMA, I just don't see this ending any different then any recent Anderson Silva fight.

Why do people keep thinking any UFC MW has a chance against Silva? When Okami fought Franklin he lost to him by decision. When Silva fought Franklin twice he absolutely dismantled him. He had Henderson looking rocked who has an iron chin and then submitted him. Travis Lutter a BJJ specialist had him mounted, he reversed it and then submitted him. Im curious as to what sort of threat Okami presents at all? There is no MW that is good enough to beat Silva

Edit: Just watched their old fight. Now im even more confident in Silva winning. He was schooling him back then and has gotten so much better.

Why ?




silva has beaten far superior wrestlers, strikers and grapplers than okami. everything that okami does well, anderson has beat somebody that does it better, and beat them pretty handily.

Silva Vs. Okami & Bisping Vs. Leben? This is already shaping into a quality card.

For everyone saying Okami is going to be da Spiders toughest challenge, were u guys under a rock during his last fight? Okami doesn'twill try the same thing as henderson and be even less successful as Henderson. I hope that Silva doesn't move up to LHW anytime soon, there are a couple of jj guys I'd like to see Silva match up with. I'd really like to see Silva vs Demian Maia, I think Maia's jj is as good if not better then any other MW and I wouldn't mind seeing Almeida and Silva go at it too, Almeida could pose the biggest challenge for Silva, I see him as anin shape Lutter with a little better striking. Now don't get me wrong I have a long list of LHW I'd like to see Silva fight, but I just want to see those other fights first.

not for nothing but anything can happen in MMA. Dont write off Okami. If Ryo Chonan can pull off a win against Anderson, Okami will also have a chance. A very slim one but a chance none the less.
