He has the skills to grind out anyone if he can get position and they let it frustrate them. Lombard has the skills to fend off any clinch or takedown attempts from Yushin, before even considering that he's more powerful and has a considerably lower center of gravity.

I think Okami will just get stuffed and countered.

This is a definite possibility as well. Yushin is by far the best fighter Lombard will have faced up to this point though. Not that it means he will lose, but that's why I'm not entirely sold he will beat Okami.

I think it can go either way.... Okami by decision or Lombard by some form of stoppage.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Dirty dirty card!!

Not surprised they have Lombard on the fast track for a title shot. He had a close loss to a top 10 MW in his very first UFC fight and bounced back to KO one of the most dangerous men in the business. Now he's getting a top 5 MW and what will be a TRUE test of where exactly he stands. Very interesting to see how he deals with someone who has the size and strength of Okami.

Lombard. No way Okami can bully Lombard with his grappling & standing up it wont take many punches for Lombard to put Okami away.
