Anderson Silva’s camp says Okami will be ‘lost’ and will eventually be ‘knocked out’ at UFC: Rio

Every job has high and low points, but when your job is to spar with the pro fighters at the Team Nogueira training centre, the lows are that you get kicked by Anderson Silva a lot. You can weigh up the pros and cons for yourself. Roberto Corvo already weighed them up and decided that taking front kicks to the face from Anderson Silva was going to be rewarding. This makes him a great person to ask about Anderson Silva’s upcoming fight with Yushin Okami, which is just what did:

“Anderson’s a strategist, he’s much elusive. Okami will be lost on this fight, and he’ll be knocked out.”

He goes on to explain that Anderson uses that kick in training frequently and has knocked out sparring partners by delivering a front kick to either the face or the ribs. I imagine taking that front kick to the ribs would feel like being kicked by an angry horse and I would pay good money to see John Brenkus set that experiment up. [Source]
