I’m no weather man, but it looks like there’s gonna be some “Thunder” and “Lightning” in Japan on March 2nd. Late Monday night, it was announced Yushin Okami will meet Hector Lombard at “UFC on FUEL TV 8.”
Okami collected his second consecutive victory at UFC 155 by dominating Alan Belcher. The former middleweight top contender posted a TKO win over Buddy Roberts before that.
After watching his 24-fight winning streak disappear in his big league debut to Tim Boetsch, Lombard rebounding in violent fashion by beating Rousimar Palhares into unconsciousness last month in his native Australia.
The 185-pound shootout will kick off the FUEL TV broadcast, which will air live in North America.
Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan hosts the bash.
