Personally I rate Okami and I think he deserves this fight. However I don't think seeing this fight on a later card is too bad there are a lot of other fights out there that need to be done soon.

no i dont think he has a decent ufc fight win his last fights rory singer, kalib starnes just because he won doesnt mean he should fight swick i think swick should be close to a title shot.

Is this officially off the card then or just a rumour?

I don't know I was kind of looking forward to this fight as well. With "The Athlete" quickly surpassing him and now fighting Franklin, who else would you guys want to see him fight? He didn't have a great showing against the Crow and Okami has looked good in and outside of the UFC. I think this fight would have been good. Not like he is going to fight Leben anymore, but knowing some of the past match ups, this may be next. Fan of both fighters.

He would be alot closer if he beat Okami, too many top rated fighters in the mix at the moment for people to rush to shots. Especially with Lutter getting a shot due to TUF..
