In his World Series of Fighting debut, Yushin Okami (30-8) did what he does best, grinding out an overmatched Svetlozar Savov (12-5) for nearly two full rounds before ending the fight by submission.
Okami looked to trade early, but when a Savov jab made it tought ot score from the outside, the Japanese product pushed into the clinch and landed an immediate trip takedown. Okami moved immediately to mount and looked to pound away from the top. Savov was stuck on his back, and Okami finished the round in top position, passing on a potential armbar to stat in control.
Savov looked to strike in the second, throwing out a few flashy spinning strikes to open. But once Okami moved inside, he immediately scored a trip and against set up in top position. With Okami looking for option, Savov briefly pushed him away. But Okami moved quickly back down, set up the arm-triangle and dismounted, forcing the tap with 14 seconds left in the round.
