July’s edition of TATAME Magazine features a series of articles with the biggest stars of UFC Rio, inlcuding Yushin Okami, who talks about the bout against Anderson in 2006, in Rumble on the Rock, which he won by disqualification after being hit by an illegal upkick.

“I won by DQ, but I felt I lost that fight,” Okami said, responding to Anderson Silva's charge that he faked he was hurt to stop the fight. “There was a damage. There is no point to talk about past things so I don't really care of what people say about last fight.
"However, that experience made me stronger and as a result I was able to fight in UFC afterwards so I really thank and respect Silva. The word that he says to that I was dressed in damage last is past. I am not dressed. This time I will fight with respect and it will be a chance to show who's the best”.
