The Ultimate Fighting Championships announced via is Japaneses website, that Yushin Okami will take on Chael Sonnen at UFC 104 on October 24th from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Okami hasn’t fought since December of 2008, defeating BJJ master Dean Lister via unanimous decision at UFC 92 “The Ultimate 2008”. Okami’s true power comes in neutralizing his opponents strengths, which makes for boring fights. His style has made it difficult to gain wide spread fan acceptance.
After making the transition for the WEC to the UFC, Sonnen was submitted by Demian Maia at UFC 95, but came back strong at UFC 98 “Evans vs Machida” and took the decision win over Dan Miller.
