Yushin Okami booked against Buddy Roberts after injury issues hit UFC 150

Former UFC middleweight contender Yushin Okami (26-7) will now face Buddy Roberts at UFC 150 after watching two other opponents go out for health-related erasons. First, Luiz Cane pulled out with an injury, and now Rousimar Palhares has done the same thing.

Roberts (12-2) was set to take on Chris Camozzi, but an injury knocked Camozzi out too. Given the situation, the UFC decided to pair the two 185-pounders up against one another.

UFC 150 takes place August 11 from Denver’s Pepsi Center. In the main event, Benson Henderson will defend his lightweight title against Frankie Edgar.
