Mega excited about this event not least because it's being held over in Brazil and it features Anderson Silva, who was recently voted (and deservedly so imo) as being the greatest Mixed Martial Artist in UFC history.
Competing against Silva for the Middleweight title is Yushin 'Thunder' Okami, who also happens to be the last man to beat Anderson Silva although it was admittedly by DQ. That said Yushin is a very intelligent fighter, and he's got the wrestling skill and strength to give Anderson Silva some problems.
In the co-main event is the rematch between Forrest Griffin and Mauricio Rua, despite Forrest's most recent comments and the betting odds I still expect this to be a hard fought contest.
