Rumor: Anderson Silva vs. Yushin Okami in October

Sources indicate to Bloody Elbow that as of last week, Anderson Silva was scheduled to fight Yushin Okami in October at the UFC's next UK show.  The UFC is reportedly looking at Birmingham, England as a possible show location.

If they do go ahead with this fight, it will be interesting to see if it is done on Spike TV or PPV, because this fight alone on a UK PPV will probably do the lowest buyrate of the year unless the semi main event is big.

Note:  There has been no bout agreement signed or anything.  This is just a rumor right now, and things change quickly in this business.
