I think this fight is going to look a lot like Koch/Brookins with Okami just holding him against the fence while getting rocked through-out the fight. Okami won't get a TD do any sort of damage, but with the way judges treat Lombard he could get the win.

I think Lombard will neutralize Okami's grappling , avoid the takedown and then test Okami's chin.

Yeah I don't think Okami is going to take him down, I think he's going to press him against the cage and that might be enough to screw Lombard out of a win.

I feel like I'm giving Okami too much credit for being able to survive. Anderson has a habit of playing with guys and letting them off the hook. I'm predicting that he'll simply survive against Lombard. Then again, Hector is a really good finisher, very rarely does he hurt someone and not finish them.

I don't know why, but when I see Okami fight, I see a guy trying not to lose. Lombard is a powerful judo guy, I have a feeling the fight will play out similarly to the Boestch fight, with the judges not being as kind to Okami as they were to Boestch.

Okamie deserve A LOT more credit than he's been given. The man is not one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC by most fans. But I personally love his grinding, tactical style.

I think Okami will continue to beat the contenders coming up through the MW Ranks.

Lombard is a good grappler, but Okami will press the fight (or so I hope) and drain Lombard, and break him. Okamis style is too grueling for Lombard.

If Okami can avoid Lombards big shots, I think he has a great chance. If Okami makes it out of the first round I think he has the fight.

Though I'm curious to see if Lombard comes out like he did in the Palhares fight, or if he is going to sit back more and pick his shots. Personally I think for Lombard his best bet is to go forward in the first round and make Okami uncomfortable. But has to be careful to not gas himself because Okami will take him down once he's gassed.

I know the chances are slim, but I'd lose it if Okami stopped Lombard. Then maybe he'd get some more respect.

I agree, MuscleSherk. Assuming that his style is successful of course. If Lombard can entice him into a game of cat and mouse on the feet, it may not matter much if he survives the round.
Okami will definitely be a challenge for Lombard though, given the proven gap between each fighter's cardio level. I see this fight playing out in Okami's favour.
