UFC 134 will feature a Middleweight title defense in the main event as UFC Champ Anderson Silva will defend his title against Yushin Okami when the promotion makes its long awaited return to Brazil on August 27th.
Silva will attempt to redeem himself of a loss earlier in his career to Okami while doing it in front of his home country and although some may feel the champ will have pressure on his shoulders to bring a top notch performance, he feels pretty relaxed about the situation as he told the media today during the UFC 134 conference call:
"I don_t have pressure. Okami is a good fight. This is a great opportunity for me, for Brazil. This is a great opportunity for Brazil. I_m very happy, very excited. The pressure? I don_t have pressure. I train for a long time. I train for the best guys and I fight the best guys in the world. I don_t have pressure. After this fight, I will go back for training. Vitor, Okami, Chael Sonnen, Dana will decide who_s next."
