For fans of mixed martial arts, this past week has been a slow crawl of steadily rising anticipation for tonight's "Silva vs. Okami" event, going down at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
UFC 134 will feature a rematch more than five years in the making, as Anderson Silva will defend his middleweight title against longtime top contender Yushin Okami.
Speaking of rematches, Mauricio Rua will get his with Forrest Griffin in an attempt to avenge his submission loss to the former champion back in Sept. 2007.
It's been a flurry of non-stop news, analysis, quotes, predictions and previews for the past week and it's certainly understandable if you missed out on a few stories.
