UFC 134 – Yushin Okami Vs. Anderson Silva Play By Play

Surprisingly, fans are giving Yushin Okami more of a chance that I would’ve ever thought. Or maybe, they’re just trying to predict the day that Anderson Silva finally falls atop his perch of greatest fighter alive. In a poll I conducted on the Fight Game Blog Facebook page, Silva was clearly winning the poll, but out of 25 votes, 7 thought Okami was going to win. I’ll update the poll if it changes by fight time.

1. Stanislav Nedkov vs. Luiz Cane

Nedkov is just winging punches. Cane is too good of a stand-up fighter to to not take advantage of the sloppiness. Nedkov started off quickly and aggressively, but after being hit solidly a bit, he’s being more patient. And just like that, Nedkov blitzed him. He hit him with an overhand right and then a left and Cane was out on his feet. His legs were wobbly and he was trying to do the stanky leg. Nedkov then connected again and put his lights out. Wow.

Winner: Stanislav Nedkov by way of 1st round TKO.

2. Brendan Schaub vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

Schaub looks a little soft while Big Nog looks a little thicker than usual. Looks like he wanted to have strength for Schaub. Schaub looked like he wanted to test Big Nog early and felt his power and decided to fight more cautiously. He’s trying to land an upper cut. And just like that, Big Nog put his lights out. That’s back to back wows for me.
