The UFC 134 weigh-ins went down on Friday in Brazil with both champion Anderson Silva and challenger Yushin Okami hitting the mark to make their title fight official.

Okami came in at a slim 183 pounds, a full 2 pounds under the allowance, and promised to leave a hostile Brazil crowd disappointed when he walks out with the middleweight title.

“I’m going to do my best, and I’m going to take home the belt,” Okami said. “Don’t miss it, I’m going to be here with my all, I’m going to win.”

Anderson Silva will be looking to add onto his UFC record of wins and title defenses when he steps into the cage on Saturday night in his home country of Brazil. Walking out with his sons to the weigh-in stage, Silva predicted it will be “Brazil vs. the World” at UFC 134.

“I hope everyone comes here and watches this great event tomorrow night cause it’s Brazil versus the rest of the world,” Silva stated.

The rest of the weigh ins went down without an issue, but the Brazilians definitely felt the love from the crowd while their opponents probably felt more boos than in any weigh in before.

    I am gona call it now, Okami by KO in the first!!

    • KevinBrazil

      @Judo, Bro do you really think that Silva is gonna walk in there and let Yushin knock him out in the 1st?? Not gonna happen, In fact IMO I think that Silva is gonna make a statement and knock Yushin out, Yushin is a good wrestler and striker but Silva is not gonna go to the ground with him. Silva wins by KO in the 3rd.

      • phrankthetank

        As far as silva “letting” okami KO him, I don’t think okami plans on asking permission. As far as silva “not going to the ground with him” his takedown defense needs to improve before he gets to make those decisions. That being said, I still agree with you that silva will tko/ko okami, I’d say 2nd rd, and THAT being said I hope I’m wrong.

  • Ya_Veo

    WOW that’s pretty ballsy……..but alright man good luck with that on the odds.

  • TRIPR

    i would love that but after watching their first fight, i don’t see that happening.

  • judo johnson

    ok, i also thought Vitor would win in the first, i was kinda right, lol

  • Mr. Bojangles

    Silva by whatever he want, Schaub by KO, and after reading Forest book, I hope he gets beat down like he did against Silva.

    • Unador

      lmao, what was in his book that was so bad?

  • jared499

    Is it me or did Big Nog look incredibly out of shape?

    My predictions:
    Anderson Silva by decision
    Maurcio Rua by decision
    Rodrigo Nogueria by submission
    Luiz Cane by decision
    Ross Pearson by KO
    Spencer Fisher by decision
    Rousimar Palhares by decision

    A night filled with decisions, it will be intereseting to see what part the judges play on this heavily loaded brazillian card. I am calling at least one wrong call.

    • Unador

      Big Nog just got fixed. I don’t think I would get back into fighting if I had both my hips fixed with surgery, and my knee(s), and whatever else.
      Stronger than ever he says. Better than ever he says. That’s what they all say the day before the old get pummeled by the new.
      Schaub has been a bit cocky, not a good idea for him. I think Schaub will win with strikes, but Nog is a long time vet, not to be underestimated.
      .

      I expect there to be some fiasco with the judges. Which I think is grossly unfair to the fighters, but I like it, and hope there is some sort of crazy controversial decision. It will continue to motivate these fighters to finish their fights, and not strategize to eek out a decision.

  • phrankthetank

    I think it’s going to be a quiet night most of the night, don’t see too many of the brazilians walking away with wins.

    • Unador

      There is gonna be some kind of riot, either way. All Brazil wins? Joyous rioting.
      All non Brazil wins? Angry rioting.

      aren’t these ex soccer fans? aren’t soccer fans the deadliest in the world?
      Didn’t 350,000 people try to get tickets to this show?
      I’d be worried if that place looks like a Grateful Dead concert. With 30,000 people in the stands and 120,000 dead heads in the parket lot.
