UFC 134 Fight Card: Silva vs. Okami

via <a href=""></a>

With two UFC events already in the books for August, the third is under two weeks away. UFC 134 comes to you from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on August 27th. The main event is a UFC middleweight title matchup between champion Anderson Silva and challenger Yushin Okami. Okami is the only man that holds a win over Silva in the last 6 and a half years, though it was via disqualification due to an illegal kick from Anderson. The co-main event is also a rematch and pits two former UFC light heavyweight champions against each other. Forrest Griffin will look to pick up a second straight win over Mauricio Rua, who is coming off a devastating loss to Jon Jones that cost him his title. In addition to those two huge bouts, the card also marks the return of legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira to the cage after 19 month layoff. He will face rising star Brendan Schaub. Here's the full card.
