Hard fight to call, I wouldn't be surprised to see Okami win a decision but my prediction is that Lombard catches Okami at some point in the bout shaking him up and swarms on him much like Boetsch did and takes him out.

Lombard is like 3rd-4th best fight for Silva. Weidman and Jacare are the biggest threats.

Okami is going to beat Lombard.

Okami can't handle any kind of pressure, and Lombard is going to press the action until Okami wilts in the second half of the fight. Definitely not counting Okami out, but i just don't see it happening.

Only guy Okami has really ever beat with any sort of a base/wrestling/TDD is Munoz. And it was a close fight.

And Lombard probably has a better base than Munoz. WHo was taken down at will by Weidman. And even taken down by Leban if I recall correctly?

Okami will look great if he doesn't get swarmed early, or lose his shit and forget he can't brawl. If he actually fights smart and implements HIS game, I see him winning this fairly one sided.

Okami has improved his wrestling a lot more sense the Munoz fight. I think Lombard will come out strong and gas. Okami wins this.

No. You're biased.
And that's okay because that's part of being a fan. When it starts to affect logical rationale, it becomes a problem. If Caol Uno fought Ben Henderson, I'd be willing to bet that you would pick Uno to win. Or say that a prime Caol Uno would beat a prime Ben Henderson.

I think that you're correct in your analysis of this particular fight. Lombard is too small for Middleweight in my opinin, and he has a major reach disadvantage. If Okami fights smart, he should have no problem with Lombard.
