The fight should end up being entertaining especially since UFC 134 takes place in Silva’s home country of Brazil.
Okami has also been training with Chael Sonnen, the man that beat Silva for almost five complete rounds.
The main event has all the makings of a truly epic finish to a card that is complimented by other great fights with some of Brazil’s top fighters.
Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will face The Ultimate Fighter 1, and former UFC light heavyweight champion, Forrest Griffin, in another rematch on the card.
Which Shogun will show up to this fight is anybody’s guess. Will he show the great display of striking he is well known for? Or will Forrest yet again get the best of Shogun and finish him off? Shogun is coming off of a loss in what was his first defense of his light heavyweight title against Jon Jones. That fight was arguably the worst fans have ever seen the former champion so will that play a factor in his fight with Forrest?
Also slated for UFC 134 is a fight between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and up-and-comer, Brendan Schaub.
If Schaub can knock off Nogueira it will be the second straight MMA legend that Shcaub has beaten.
All in all UFC 134 is poised to be an epic card so stay here with Cody Slovensky and Sal DeRose for all your MMA news from UFC 134.
