    He said he wanted to be the best grappler in his division

    called Palhares a fool that he skooled

    karma is a b%tch.

    love watching him fight dough

    I think he underestimated Okami's strength in the clinch and on the ground, odd considering he has felt it before, he must have thought that he was much stronger than their first meeting apparently he forget to take into account that Okami has improved in grinding things out as well , you would expect him to constantly training with a grinder like Chael Sonnen

    I think he took Okami lightly and he paid for it.

    Yushin's been top five/ten for forever now, just because he had a bad stretch didn't mean he was over, he just had a bad stretch, LeBron has off nights too but he's still the best player in the league. Yushin showed he's still got what it takes to remain in the elite, but he'll never beat Anderson.

    What happens when 2 fighters who are fighting on their level collide, but their levels aren't equal?

    30-27's happen.

    Okami is a bad matchup for Belcher.
    A strong guy, an excellent positional grappler, and very difficult to submit.

    Belcher should have capitalized on Okami's failed TD's, where Belcher ended up on top twice. One time Belcher ended up in mount, but couldn't keep the position for more than a few seconds.
    He had opportunities, he just didn't take them and run with it.

    I don't know why he chose to grapple with him so much, horrible game planning. But it's a good win for Okami nonetheless.

    Thank God we can finally stop seeing and hearing the #Belcher4Champ nonsense. Finally he will stop calling people out who would handle him easily.

    Shame I bought into his hype and had money on him though.

    What this really revealed was just how overrated Palhares was. He was a heavy favorite against Belcher and just got dominated at his own game on the ground. Palhares's overinflated ranking made people think Belcher could beat Okami, when Okami has shown he outmuscles anyone outside of the top 5.

    He's got the talent, but is lacking something. Yushin was the better man.

    The one thing in that fight that really pissed me off was how he ignored Okami's right leg, the front one after the first few seconds of the first round.

    That leg was out in front ripe for several inside leg kicks or any other abuse and some good shots could have kept Okami standing for longer if he was not in position to shoot for the take down downs.

    The second thing I am so tired of seeing at this level of MMA is guillotine chokes. They are quite easily defended these days and give up terrible position. They work for the guys on TUF now and then but not so much in the big show, especially against a very good wrestler like Okami. It was like a late Christmas gift, "here Yushin, I will give you top position to work with, it is where you do your best work...?".

    UGhhhh, bad moves from Alan. It makes me sad.

    This, Belcher stated multiple times that he wasn't training specifically for Okami and was training for other top guys in the division (basically just Bisping.) When you're fighting someone with the skill Okami has, that's bound to come back and bite you in the ass.
