There first fight in 2006 at Rumble on the Rock ended by disqualification after Anderson Silva landed a illegal upkick that forced Yushin Okami out of the fight. Since that loss, The Spider has racked up a impressive 14 fight winning streak.
“Guys, the fight is on to November 13 in Germany. It’ll be against tough Okami. Let’s go.” [Twitter]
UFC 122 is set for Nov. 13 from the KÃ¶nig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany. The show will be broadcast in the US for free on SpikeTV.
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.
