Omigawa is coming back to UFC only this time as a top ten fw.It looks like his first opponent is to be the undefeated Chad Mendes

Im a fan of the signing but I think it's a little crazy to go with Mendes as his first opponent. Should be a good fight but still not a very warm welcome to the UFC's new division.

I agree.It's kinda cruel throwing him to one of Urijahs wolves in his first fight back.But if he could somehow win he's an instant contender.

Tough fight for both guys.

Love the signing but not the matchup with Mendes being a strong wreslter and will prolly wrestle Omigawa for 3 rounds.

I give the guy credit, but know his weaknesses to....classic Asian fighter that doesn't know how to wrestle............BJJ is great, kickboxing is solid, massive cardio and heart, but he plays into Mendes' strenghts.

Omigawa takes this fight EASILY by decision.



As long as the fight happens in Japan.

Chad will probably take this by LnP. i dont mind when a guy can control from the top and throws punches every now and then, and it doesnt even have to be many punches, but at least do something. Chad wins by putting Omigawa, the ref, and the fans to sleep. I hope im wrong though because he has a ton of talent and COULD be exciting to watch
