I hope I am right this time between us lol.

Marquardt is definitely the better striker and Okami is pretty willing to keep fights standing, I could see him struggling in a similar way to Bisping vs Akiyama.

If Okami would use his strength to try and take guys down and hold them there like Sonnen does then I would go with him as Marquardt showed his wrestling wasn't the greatest against Sonnen(Sonnen out wrestled Okami too, not as bad though) but I think he will try to strike with Marquardt as well and that will be his mistake.

If Okami does take it to the ground early and often then he has a chance but Marquardt showed he does have some BJJ and almost caught Sonnen a couple times. He is also the larger fighter so that will help him too.

Fight may be closer then the odds are but I pick Marquardt, haven't been impressed enough with Okami's fights to think he can beat Marquardt who is top 3 in the division imo.

And you are just about too lose again my friend

The odds should be wayyy closer to that in my mind! No doupt about that. Thats why Yushin is an awesome bet here!

I also give Nate the striking advantage here.. but not by a large margin. Okami can definitely strike with him!

But after all this talk from Yushin's recent opponents, where every single one of those guys called him the strongest man on this planet earth, you should give Yushin the EDGE here

Plus he is a very skilled Wrestler. I give him because of his size and strenght the advantage here and I truly believe he can outwrestle Nate and win a UD.

Nate's BJJ Black Belt shouldn't be mentioned here! Nothing to worry about for Okami.

I might be a little bit biased here, but I am going with Thunder Very very close, could get either way. But I have it 65/35!

Yushin via UD or SD!

After a string of bad judging beats I am counting on the japanese gorilla to replenish my credits with some of his time tested jab/grab/smash offense.

Marquardt at -208 was the best I could find out of 4 sites with odds published for it (Sports Int.), will keep looking for others in case a lot of Okami money makes them rethink or something. Oh and I lifted that Zombie poster from BloodyElbow, I haven't got the photoshop skills for that.
