UFC 134 Preview Video

Dana White and Joe Rogan build the hype for UFC 134: RIO on August 27th. Most of the conversation focuses on Anderson Silva vs Yushin Okami. There's also a heaping helping of Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs Forrest Griffin and Brendan Schaub vs Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera

Shogun is looking to avenge his 2007 loss to Griffin, a fight that propelled Griffin to the light heavyweight title. Rua wants to beat Griffin so he can get a rematch against Jon Jones, the man who took his title. 

Heavyweight Brendan Schaub is looking to build his reputation off the aging lion Nogueira. He already beat Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic and is looking to go 2-0 against former Pride legends.

Silva is looking to avenge a DQ loss to Okami that happened in Hawaii in 2006. Okami is the last man to hold a win over Silva, regardless of how illegitimate it may be. The illegal upkick that got Silva DQ'd is revisited at length.
