Yushin Okami Signs With WSOF

Yushin Okami Signs With WSOF

Former UFC middleweight title contender Yushin Okami has signed a multi-fight deal with the World Series of Fighting (WSOF). The two had been talking since Okami was released by the UFC.

Okami will debut around March, but no exact date or opponent has been finalized. He will remain as a middleweight.

Last month, the UFC got rid of Okami after a first round TKO loss to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza. Prior to that, he won three in a row and his release was somewhat of a shock. He was 13-5 for the UFC and with them for seven year.

    Good for Yushin. I like him in WSOF better than Bellator and I don’t foresee many problems for him in that org. Branch, Mustapcic, and JT Money are the only guys I see that may give him a tough fight. Hopefully he rattles off a few wins, take the inaugural MW title and gets back to the UFC where he finishes out his career.

    I’m still not happy/surprised UFC cut him, but I’m glad he was able to find a new org so quickly instead of having to sit on the shelf for awhile. Maybe this org will do what I’ve wanted the UFC to do with him forever, have him walk out to Thunderstruck by AC/DC

    Yushin will get more love over at WSOF than he ever got in the UFC and BFC is not a good temporary spot to fight in
