During a question and answer session with UK fight fans on Friday, UFC color commentator Joe Rogan revealed that middleweights Yushin Okami and Evan Tanner are set to face each other on April 19 at UFC 84 in Montreal, reports MMAWeekly.com.

UFC vice president of talent relations Joe Silva reportedly confirmed Rogan’s comments.

UFC 84 is scheduled to be headlined by a welterweight title match between incumbent Matt Serra and challenger Georges St. Pierre.

The UFC has yet to formally announce the UFC 84 card, but is expected to do so during a press conference in Montreal on February 4. At that time, additional matches could be announced.

So far rumored bouts for the card include Karo Parisyan vs. Thiago Alves, Mac Danzig vs. Mark Bocek, and Joe Doerksen vs. Jason MacDonald. Canadian fighters Patrick Cote and Sam Stout could be included on the card as well.

    Bad match up for Tanner. Okami is simply going to over power him.

    Tanner is back. And they didn’t give him a joke that’s for sure. No matter what happens I’m just glad to see Evan Tanner back. Hopefully he can keep his head on straight thru this contract. Please stay off the booze Evan, we like ya when you are off the sauce.
