UFC 134 -- Saturday August 27, 2011.
The UFC returns to the home of mixed martial arts -- Brazil, this Saturday when Anderson “Spider” Silva defends the middleweight gold versus Yushin “Thunder” Okami.
Anderson will have the pressure on him, defending his status as the number one middleweight on the planet, on home soil, facing the Japanese fighter who holds a disqualification win over the South American. It may only be a DQ win but it’s still a blip on Silva’s MMA fight record.
