Video: Yushin Okami Defeats Anderson Silva In 2006

UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva will defend his title this August against the last man to have defeated him (albeit by disqualification), Japanese powerhouse Yushin Okami.

The two first met at Rumble on the Rock 8 in 2006, where Silva was disqualified after knocking out Okami with an illegal up-kick. Both fighters have since stated that they don’t consider the fight a victory for Okami, and plan to settle the score at UFC 134 this August 27 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

You can watch their first fight from the “Rumble on the Rock” tournament from on January 20, 2006 below:
