UFC 134: Stronger Yushin Okami will break Anderson Silva's win streak in Brazil (Video)

Okami_medium

Every major main event fight needs an angle to market it. In the case of the upcoming Anderson Silva vs. Yushin Okami middleweight title match-up at UFC 134 on Aug. 27 in Brazil, its strength.

Seems just a bit too simplistic but as you can see from the video trailer released for the event, it's exactly what the UFC is pushing as a big selling point for the fight.

Okami himself is furthering this notion by stating he's going to "take advantage" of the fact that he's stronger than "The Spider" when they meet inside the cage.

Of course, recent training footage seems to suggest Silva has already fought -- and defeated -- a stronger middleweight.

Nevertheless, that's all "Thunder" believes he needs to break the incredible win streak Silva has built dating all the way back to 2006, which just so happened to be a disqualification defeat against Okami.

Can the Japanese king pick up a more legitimate win in the rematch? Hear more from the first time UFC title challenger after the jump.
