Kid Yamamoto and Omigawa signed to the UFC

UFC President Dana White has verified via Twitter that in fact Norifumi ‘Kid’ Yamamoto has been signed to the UFC. The announcement came only a day after rumors of talks with the Japanese 145 lb. star. Kid reportedly had a falling out with FEG’s Dream promotions prior to Dream.14 and expressed much interest in the higher talent pool in the UFC, hoping to one day get a shot at Jose Aldo.

Along with Yamamoto comes the signing of Michihiro Omigawa from Dream as well. Omigawa will be making his return to the UFC off a five win streak, but will have a tough fight against the undefeated featherweight, Chad Mendes.  A tentative date is yet to be set for the two clashing.
