Yushin Okami wins points with Hector Lombard for having a black belt in judo. But his Saturday fight with the Japanese veteran also worries him, mainly due to how Okami has used his grappling against opponents.

After the whole Jon Fitch debacle I wouldn't be too terribly surprised if he was released after a boring loss. I'd still be a little shocked, especially considering that unlike Fitch, he has a reputation as a KO artist, and as a finisher. I think, even if he loses though, the ufc would give him 1 last shot at redemption.

i do hope this fight is exciting. unfortunately it really does have a chance of being a snooze fest. i think it's all up to hector to make it an exciting fight because as far as i'm concerned, okami will fight a boring fight every time unless he's getting KO'd like the tim boetch fight.
