The Underground News, Editor
 

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.
Anderson Silva illegal upkick KO to Yushin Okami
 

“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”.

Silva by knockout. Okami has no chance.

NarlyPersianDude - No shit, talk about pointing out the obvious


At least he's honest to himself about it - a lot of guys would hide behind that DQ.

Always thought he faked the injury after the kick. Sure, he was rocked but he put it on to win the fight.

Looking forward to the rematch, going to be a lot closer than people think.

Damn how awesome was that kick though. That's why they should legalize up kicks against downed opponents.

Look at the way his head pops back. He was done after that kick.


He was hurt after the kick, no doubt. I think he could have recovered and fought on after 5 minutes.

I always find it funny the different reaction everyone has when talking about this fight and the frank/renzo fight

Everyone goes nuts over Silva's illegal kick, says it was beautiful, amazing and what not, but frank is a cheater for hitting Renzo from the bottom

carry on...

The move was effective because it was illegal and unexpected. Okami did not do that poorly in the first fight. He kept going for takedowns until he finally got it. Then he landed a few good punches and Silva kicked him illegally. Phone Post

Am I the only one who thinks Okami actually has a decent chance in upsetting Silva? I know it will be a long shot, but if Okami can manage not to get KO'ed in first few rounds, I could see him beating Silva by decision.

You're not the only one who thinks Okami has a shot, but I'm a tenner; my opinion doesn't count. Phone Post

It seems like people don't bother to watch the fights. Okami was launching takedown attempts from WAY outside out of fear of the KD.

No one was getting owned in that fight. That illegal kick was basically the first action of the fight.

If Okami can get the fight to the ground consistently and keep it there he will win. Okami is not going to get submitted like Sonnen. The challenge is getting the fight there. Phone Post

Probably cuz he was losing and got knocked out before he learned he won by DQ.

It's retarded that upkicks are not allowed to opponents on their knees. The rules take all the balls out of a fighter fighting off his back.

Okami can stay out of subs but he doesnt have the most dynamic offense on the ground. He is a good passer, ok GNPer, good sub guy but not great. Anderson's guard will be good enough to stay in the fight and keep him in long enough to take Okami out on the feet.

Okami's tds are good enough to take anyone down at MW but he does take shots and isnt as dynamic at closing the distance as someone like Chael.

 It would have been an odd time to fake an injury.  He was finally scoring some points before that.

Okami's wrestling has improved tremendously and it was already good to begin with. Chael gave him an excellent blueprint to beat Silva. Okami doesn't have the same susceptibility to beige submitted either. He has a good shot, that's for sure. Phone Post
