Countdown to UFC 134 Anderson Silva vs Yushin Okami Discussion

Tonight is the premier of the Countdown to UFC 134. This episode will be airing on Spike TV and should feature footage breaking down the main event between Anderson Silva and Yushin Okami as well as the co-main event clash between Forrest Griffin and Mauricio Rua. I'd also expect a quick breakdown of the heavyweight fight between Brendan Schaub and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. UFC 134 is the UFC's return to Rio and is unofficially Brazil vs the World. 

Anderson Silva and Yushin Okami will meet for a second time. Okami is the last man to "defeat" Silva and is finally receiving the chance to prove that the first fight ended too soon. Anderson is fighting for his legacy as the best fighter of all time. In another rematch, Forrest Griffin and Mauricio Rua are fighting for relevancy in the light heavyweight division. Both fighters have been at the top and now need to prove that they still belong with the elite of the division. Schaub is hoping to continue to live up to his unofficial nickname "The Legend Killer" when he looks to continue his rise to the top against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

Join us tonight at 11PM ET for a discussion of the episode.
