Opponent Hector Lombard experienced also participated PRIDE. Okami wins is determined by the "UFC 155" on December 30, during the current winning streak 2.

Great fight

Okami needs to be extra careful in this one or he will be waking up to the ceiling lights

this should be great because okami will have a hell of a time using his judo on lombard, who is a judo olympian. this could be a dangerous fight for okami just for that reason, he may be forced to stand with lombard, and that could get ugly.

Two judo masters. Lombard may be able to cancel out Okami's suffocating style. If so, he's gonna threaten Yushin big time.
