The former UFC title-contender ending up in WSOF is no surprise. Other than Bellator, it was the most logical landing spot, and contractually it seemed to be the better option if Okami’s aim was to make one more run in the Octagon after stringing together a few wins. It keeps him out of tournaments, i.e. three fights in three months, and should free him up to re-sign if he puts together 2-3 triumphs under WSOF’s banner. Expect him to dominate a few mid-tier opponents and maybe land a super-fight at 205 pounds against someone like Anthony Johnson.
Wednesday has rolled around again and, as expected, the 10-Point Must is back! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from the possibility of a bout between Nick Diaz-Michael Bisping to Georges St-Pierre contemplating retirement after his next fight to a quick glimpse at Saturday night’s lineup for UFC 166.
