The UFC last night in the middle of the night, while all of us were asleep announced a fairly large fight in the Middleweight division for Fuel TV 8 in Saitama, Japan. So mid-day in Japan and night owls here found out that Yushin Okami will take on Hector Lombard in the market where both became names.
Yushin Okami (28-7) and Hector Lombard (32-3-1-1NC) both looking to get back in the Middleweight title contention will enter the octagon looking for different things. Lombard will be looking to take Okami head off his shoulders, while Okami will try to ground and pound his way to a win.
Lombard is coming of a KO of Rousimar Palhares at FX 6 in the land down under, Okami is riding a 2 fight win streak both coming by way of 3 round decisions. Headlining the card is Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann, and you can check out the updated card by clicking the link below…
