Speaking to MMABay.co.uk during today’s media conference call, Dana said:
“In my opinion, Yushin Okami is the best fighter ever to come out of Japan. This guy didn’t fight cans and get this built-up, mythological record. Anderson Silva is fighting for his legacy. Yushin Okami is fighting for respect. If he wins this fight he’ll get the credit he finally deserves.”Okami rebounded from a set back against Chael Sonnen in 2009 by racking up three impressive and unusually entertaining wins, including decisions against Mark Munoz and Nate Marquardt.
