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 bitchinga 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
