I'm not sure who wins, but I have always thought Belcher was a bit overrated. Everytime he gets a fight people talk like he is some elite top 3 fighter or something.

I might have to put some credits on Yushin if the general opinion here is reflected in the betting odds.

Belcher just man handled Palhares on the ground, Okami's not going to have anything for him!
Marquardt beat up Palhares too, didn't help him against Okami when it came time to fight and I doubt it helps Belcher either, he's gonna get neutralized for fifteen minutes.

Belcher is a severely underrated grappler a lot of the time but honestly Patrick Cote took him down, expect Okami to be able to as well.

He's the #2 MW in the UFC imo.

This is the big one for Yushin, this is the fight where we see if his back to back KO's have permanently ruined his chin. If Okami doesn't get knocked out he beats Belcher but that's now a big if. The Yushin Okami that showed up for those first two rounds against Tim Boetsch looked like the number 2 MW in the world.

That is a huge reach IMO. I think Weidman and Belfort beat him handily while fighters like Bisping and Sonnen (should he come back down) give him major problems. I think Okami is a better all around fighter as well.

Yeah Belcher is extremely overrated, I thought Vitor was gonna cream him and I think Okami is gonna hold him down for fifteen minutes, beating Palhares and Jason McDonald is not that impressive.

He is only overrated when people put him in the top 3. But most don't. So I don't think he is overrated. He is firmly in my top 10.

He should have a 7 fight win streak in the UFC right now. I don't care who you face, that is impressive. His wrestling needs work, but the guy is only 28 and has been riddled with injury. He is just coming into his own right now.

I think Belcher will tag Okami and force Okami to grapple. Okami will probably be able to take him down. Should be a close fight, but I'll go with Belcher.

Belcher is the man, his standing attack is second to none, and his ground game isn't to shabby either. I think Belcher is going to take this one. In this interview I found on youtube he talks with Fighters.com and gives some great insight on the fight. It's a must watch.
