Yushin Okami training for Anderson Silva, believes he’s the next star in the UFC

UFC middleweight number one contender, Yushin Okami is concentrating all hia training towards champion, Anderson Silva ahead of a possible fight, promising he become the next star of the UFC.

Okami, speaking via CagePotato.com, said:

“I want to fight Anderson, beat him, and I believe I’ll become a new star in the UFC. I’m concentrating and training for that fight now.”

“(With Silva vs. GSP) there is the problem of weight…and GSP will go for the takedown. But the middleweight division is for the fighters who are there, and have been fighting there, so I don’t think there’s much point in that fight. Basically, I haven’t really thought about it because Anderson and I are top of the middleweight division, so it should be left to us.”

“Anderson is the top of the middleweight division and I am coming for the belt. I promise you’ll see him fall and I’ll be the new champion. Thank you for your support!”
