August 28, 2011 by staff
Things started well for Okami, who managed to grind away the champion during the early stages. But everything fell apart in the second round. Silva arrived just live off the bat, with the explosion of clean combos. Moments later dropped his hands, completely surprising lack of respect for Okami.

In a completely alien time in the preliminaries, the Brazilian fell medium Rousimar Palhares Dan Miller with a vicious kick to the head, unloaded with a flurry and then went with his arms in victory.
The only problem is the referee Herb Dean stopped the fight ever.
Dean then literally had to pull Octagon Wall Palhares mid-celebration and force him to keep fighting. Once restarted, Miller knocked him down with a straight left, but recovered and delivered a kill Palhares large as time ran out in the first round.
Luckily for Palhares, the incident did not allow him down and maimed Miller vicious ground and pound bloodying the New Jersey native in the second.

This is not the first time acted strangely Palhares during a fight. After failing in an attempt to lock the leg against Nate Marquardt in September, Palhares stopped to protest, claiming that his opponent had greased with petroleum jelly legs.
However, he took his eyes Marquardt, leaving open for a knockout shot to the fore.
