UFC 134: Silva vs Okami Preview

With UFC 134 on its way, who do you think will take home the championship belt on Saturday?

Finally, the time has come for Anderson Silva and Yushin Okami to lock horns again. And while The Spider has grown tired of hearing about his loss against The Thunder, the latter must be thinking of how he can snatch the title. However, Anderson Silva has the reach advantage, he moves in a jiffy, extremely good in stand-up fights, and has knowledge in BJJ. Still, Yushin Okami carries with him great takedowns, boxing prowess and grappling skills.

That said, fans must expect Yushin Okami to get Anderson Silva in a clinch and wear him out. However, he must look out with the champion’s knees. If the contender can wear him the reigning king down again – with some ground and pound – the match could go the distance. Still, Anderson Silva can take a beating and can wrap up a quick submission if needed.

Brendan Schaub hopes that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira would be the last bullet in his list to point out why he deserves a title shot. Regardless, he plans on making a statement by slugging it out with Big Nog.

"I am prepared to be the UFC middleweight champion. I'm gonna prove myself in this fight. I will break his streak." --- Yushin Okami, UFC Middleweight Fighter

In less than two weeks, UFC Middleweight champion – Anderson Silva – will put his belt on the line, as he faces the division’s number one contender — Yushin Okami. The Silva vs Okami match will kick off at UFC 134, dubbed as “Rio”, on August 27 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

Both fighters believe that they have unfinished business inside the Octagon, as Yushin Okami scored a controversial win over Anderson Silva via disqualification in 2006.

Anderson Silva will mark his ninth title defense at UFC Rio. However, Yushin Okami intends to break the champ’s win streak and capture the title.
