Lombard is better everywhere, he'll defend any grappling attempts and make Okami pay for going near him.

Couldn't care less about Okami, and i think lombard is tailor made to beat this guy.. okami doesn't react well under the kind of pressure lomard will put on him.

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

I don't exactly see how Okami wins unless Lombard shows up uninterested like he did vs. Boestch.

Lombard is faster and has more power. He has a better base actually with his Judo, which will be more than enough to stop TDs. His pure grappling is on par with Okami's.

Perhaps Okami can gas him.

I can't stand Lombard.
Would love to see this jackass get his ass beat.
I think Okami will take advanage of Lombard's tiny reach and play the jab game while neturalizing Lombard's attempts to bring pressure.
Okami UD.

In that case you should be rooting for him to get a title shot.

Lombard has this. He's faster, stronger, a better grappler & hits harder. Okami might have a chance if he can stay back & use his reach but in that case we are in for a boring fight, something like the Machida/Hendo.

Excellent!

This is a terrible stylistic matchup for Okami. It isn't impossible for him to win but he is going to have to stay on his bike the whole time jabbing him every time he gets close.
