Terrible matchup for Okami imo.But the match making makes sense. Okami should have to beat an elite/top 5er to seal his shot. Vitor needs a tuner first b4 Anderson.But i also thought Chael vs Vitor, Nate vs Okami made sense.

This is a bad match up for Vitor. I will be rooting for him, but it's gonna be a tough fight.

this. vitor struggles to make (and probably even misses) 185 and okami works him over like henderson did. may even test positive in defeat like he did with the hendo fight. and of course yet another ug bandwagon instantly disappears and claims never having liked him

 Okami is going to beat Belfort then finish what Sonnen started. Quote me on this. Belfort is going to get ragdolled in this one and TKOed to a stoppage.

 Great job by the UFC....Okami has been overlooked considering his W-L record in the UFC so far, basically only missing a huge name win from his UFC resume.......AND Belfort was highly undeserving of a title shot right now since he hadn't even fought in the UFC at 185 yet.  A win here gives much more legitimacy to either getting the next 185 shot.

so what other hoop will they have Okami jump through to get to Anderson if he beats Vitor?
