UFC President Dana White has reneged on yet another ???Guaranteed??? title shot. Yushin ???Thunder??? Okami is going to be snubbed yet again and all Dana White has to say is ???Okami is gonna be pissed, but he???s not getting the next title shot.???

With Okami earning this ???guaranteed??? title shot after defeating Nate Marquardt, he will now be snubbed by a second opponent, the first was Vitor Belfort, the second is none other than ???to be determined.??? Yes, Dana White is up to his old tricks snubbing Japanese fighters of what they have earned and letting them stay inactive and springing a big fight out of nowhere on them then if not victorious stating Japanese MMA is no good or it sucks.

With Silva clearing out the middleweight division there isn???t any fight left that makes sense, so might as well make the Okami fight. Okami is the last man to get a victory against Anderson Silva although it was by DQ from an illegal upkick. Okami is also a much stronger and improved wrestler since then and is now better than Chael Sonnen, the last man to give Anderson major problems inside the Octagon.

Snake is pathetic.

At least Roni's version was edited and legible.

I'm not sure how giving the fans what they WANT is screwing the fans.

Dana is known for screwing fighters (see, Henderson, Dan) - but he generally promotes fights that he thinks fans will pay to see. And while I'm a fan of both Silva and GSP - I would love to see that fight. I feel bad for Okami, but if GSP gets by Shields - which GSP SHOULD - but you never know - then it makes sense to have that fight. Dana is like a used car salesman, his word means nothing. But in this case, he IS giving the fans what they want.
