Yushin Okami vs Mike Swick

First half of round one took place on the feet with both guys being cautious. After Swick forced a standing clinch, Okami moved him to the fence and scored a takedown. Once the fight hit the ground Okami muscled Swick and worked for a Kimura. Swick got out of it but in between rounds he told his corner ‘This guy’s strong!’.

Round two was close until the end. Okami scored two takedowns but did not do much so referee Mario Yamasaki stood the fighters up. After the second standup, Swick finally connected with some shots that stunned Okami.

With the fight even, both guys were tentative in the opening moments of the final round. Okami scored a takedown with about 3 minutes left and spent the next 1-1.5 minutes harassing Swick with light punches. With the ref in his ear, Swick gave up his back and reversed Okami. Okami went to the rubber guard and hung on for the win.

Winner: Yushin Okami by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28 and 30-27)

Okami did not even try to finish him. Weak fight IMO.

Yushin Okami is the real deal. I think he could get
either Rich Franklin or the wnner of Silva/Marquardt.
