Okami vs. Silva from ROTR 2006

Anderson Silva vs. Yushin Okami at Rumble on the Rock in 2006

The Ultimate Fighting Championship recently made the headliner and several other bouts official for UFC 134: Silva vs. Okami. The event takes place Aug. 27 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will put his belt on the line against the last man to hold a victory over him, Yushin Okami. That result does warrant an asterisk, however, as it was Silva knocking Okami out with a hooking heel kick from his back with Okami in his guard. Because Okami had both knees on the mat, the kick was illegal and Silva was disqualified.

The widely regarded pound-for-pound king will get the opportunity to wipe away that blemish when the two meet on Silva’s home turf in Rio.

Promotion officials also made the following UFC 134 bouts official: Ross Pearson vs. Edson Barboza Jr., Luis Cane vs. Stanislav Nedkov, and Maiquel Falcao vs. Tom Lawlor. There are several other bouts rumored for the event, including Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Forrest Griffin.
