I can see Okami beating Silva if he survives the first two rounds, this being a 5 round fight will greatly benefit him.
1) They do get a fraction of the pay per view profits.
2) You don't know whether Silva-GSP has been cancelled or whether this is merely an interim fight for Silva
3) If Silva-GSP has been cancelled you have no way of knowing what teh reasons are and whether more money would have made the difference
4) When Silva-Okami was cancelled people were coming on here *****inga bout the UFC not abiding by their contender eliminator matches and putting money ahead of sport. Just shows that some people will always find someting to whinge about
