Awesome fight IMO.
Okami's standup looked great in his last fight, and we'll get to see if his wrestling is better after the Sonnen loss. Munoz is a great test for anyone at MW.
Finally Okami is back on the main card!

if okami fights like the way he did in his last fight than i see him taking this one because munoz's wrestling isn't anywhere near chaels so i can't see him controlling this fight at all
