Yushin Okami, who reportedly claimed he would beat Anderson Silva up during the build-up to this fight, looks to be an about even match for the champion during the first round. That all changes in the second when Silva begins to, as Mike Goldberg puts it, push the pace.
There’s a moment reminiscent of Silva’s comical slaughter of Forest Griffin as The Spider enters The Matrix. His head movement is “sick”, his punches, which don’t look like much, are accurate and powerful enough to floor Okami, who looks completely overwhelmed, terrified even.
