i agree that okami deserves a shot, but he has no shot against silva.
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.
