It's not impossible for him to win. Lombard is going to be exposed

Lombard is one of the worst possible matchups for Okami at MW. I don't think he can take Hector down, Hector has great punching power and Okami's striking defense is not exactly world class either. Maybe he can tire Lombard out with clinch and footwork but it's going to be a long grind for Yushin and Lombard can end it any time.

I think Okami will overpower Lombard in the clinch.

I think Stun Gun has a rather obvious bias towards Asian fighters.
But in this circumstance, I think he's right.

I want Lombard to win because Yushin already got his shot at Anderson. If the same Hector shows up that faught Palhares, he should win this fight. I think his stregnth, base, and power will pose big problems for Yushin.

Very rarely do I find myself in agreement with both Ari AND Stun Gun but this is definitely one of those times

I want to say Okami, but Okami react very badly to power punches. He tends to forget his gameplan and focus. I think Lombard takes this via TKO.
