Okami vows to 'smash Anderson Silva'

source: espn.co.uk

"I don't like that fight being down as a victory of mine but I had lessons there and I want to use everything," Okami told O Globo.

"I hope that now we will have a real end. I know he is a complete fighter and has no weak points. But, if I use all my technique, power and speed, I will smash Anderson Silva.

"Of course I promise I will defeat Anderson. I will use all what I learnt in life to accomplish this objective. I know Brazil is one of the great countries in MMA. I insist, it's an honour to be able to face him here.

Okami is a bad match for Anderson if you nuthuggerz think of it. He's stronger, and a better grappler, better wrestler and in fact the best japanese/asian wrestler in the sport. add that to a decent stand up game and chin, and we have an upset

The only guys at LHW I see beating him would be Jones and maybe Evans (especially if it's only a 3 rounder).

fixed.Also... no ones unbeatable, not even Anderson. If he went up to LHW we'd see the losses piling up.

From a skills perspective, I honestly believe Anderson is the best MMA fighter right now in the world.That said, his antics and complete intentional humiliation of Maia has made me not a fan of his.Because of that I am rooting for Okami to win, despite knowing Anderson takes it. whenever Anderson has been angry he kills his opp. Okami working with Chael, and having said the words he has will anger Anderson

Okami is going to get knockout. Silva all the way in this fight.

To be fair, he has a better shot than Vitor did. Okami is one of the biggest and strongest MWs out there and he has wrestling going for him. I'm not exactly holding my breath though.

I think Anderson will win. However, I don't expect anythign but confidence from Okami. If he isn't confident he will be defeated before the bell even rings. Does Okami have a shot? Sure but I wouldn't put money on him unless the odds are to good to pass up.
