This is like Swick vs Okami all over again. It is just clear how much stronger Okami is over most of the MW division.

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.
Hoho, GO THUNDER!

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.

Horrible match up for Belcher, Okami is a good wrestler but worst off all he nullifies Belcher's grappling by not really posturing up or going for submisions. Okami isn't giving Belcher anything to work with or any space to move.

Wow, Okami still has it. I thought between his softer physique and his recent performances that he was on his way out. Guess not.

Oh, and **** that god awful ref for standing them up.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

That strength tbh. Okami is just insanley strong and when he gets someone like Belcher it's really clear how great it is.

Stand up from side control...ridiculous.

Now or never Al.

Great control, he's out muscling and out working Belcher.
