This is the best thing to happen to an MMA fighter EVER. Anderson Silva is the fucking GD Tiger Woods of this sport. Anyone who can't see that or at least respect that he's 1 of the best fighters on the planet are out of their minds. Anderson Silva is the epitome of a role model for every fighter in the sport.

Hope Anderson does well against Okami.I have the same feeling about that fight that I had for Fedor vs Hendo.Gonna put my $$ where my mouth is and put down 5g's on Okami.Can Okami be boring? SureBut once I put money down, even competitive eating is exciting and interesting.
