Mark Munoz vs. Yushin Okami on tap for “UFC on Versus 2″

Another good fight has been added to the UFC’s second event on Versus as The Philippine Wrecking Machine Mark Munoz will take on the always tough Yushin Okami.

The news of the bout comes courtesy of a recent report from MMAWeekly.

Munoz is coming off of an exciting fight against Kendall Grove at UFC 112 that saw him escaping numerous submission attempts before brutally finishing Grove off in the second round. The fight earned Munoz a 75,000 dollar bonus for the Fight of The Night. Munoz’s only loss in MMA came in his UFC debut against Matt Hamill, since then he has won three straight fights.

Okami recently defeated Brazilian Lucio Linhares, showing much improved striking as he opened up Linhares with brutal strikes. Okami was originally scheduled to face Anderson Silva at UFC 90 but a broken hand caused him to pull out. Since then, Okami has defeated Dean Lister and Linhares, but suffered a tough loss to Chael Sonnen. Another victory of two and Okami could find himself in a potential fight for the middleweight title.

UFC on Versus 2 will happen on August 1 and will emanate from the EngerySolutions Arena in Salt lake City, Utah.
