Okami's standup is really mediocre. Despite what Rogan says about Okami having improved his boxing, Okami's only weapon seems to be his jab. That ain't gonna be useful against a guy with a longer reach than he has. IIRC, Okami fights southpaw? It is gonna make it hard for him to shoot a takedown against a fighter in the orthodox stance.
Hoping Okami takes Belcher down from the clinch and fends off the submission attempts.
Okami don't have the tools to take Belcher down though. Belcher has great balance. However he gotta stop going for submission attempts that wind him on his back. Okami's top control is overwhelming, and landing on his back would mean the round is probably over for him.
WTF AT REF STANDING OKAMI UP FROM SIDE CONTROL.
